on the radio, anyways.
I think music censorship is dumb, but I'll explain that later.

RE: should music be censored?
yea. It's censored on the radio, but I would rather it wouldn't be.[also censored CD's are released for children, which I can understand.]The music itself though, should be broadcasted how it was written...

RE: should music be censored?
i am not sure, some of the words the radio censures are pretty dumb, but i can't imagine hearing A Kiss (bad meets evil) uncensored on the radio, at least where i am at.

RE: should music be censored?
Something like Five Finger death Punch's music shouldn't be censored, same with Eminem[ or volbeat's Still Counting], because that's highly characteristic of their music. if katy perry wants to make a song with a bad word but censors it in the music recording, that's one thing.

RE: should music be censored?
Eminem doesn't deserve to be censored =_= That's a fact. You can't censor him, it's his characteristic. You won't understand him without it.

You can censor the other "rappers" cuz they suck >.> Kanye West and Jay-Z are good though..

That's my point, there's some music that just isn't the same once it is censored

Those of you who have access to the debate section know my position on profanity. Therefore, I completely support the censorship of vulgar language in music.

RE: should music be censored?
^lucky

@FJ-no offense as a side note, but i seriously cba about minaj.

I will say that radio is the best way to listen to music(having a song spontaneously come on over the airways that you haven't heard in forever is one of the greatest things I have ever experianced) but it just isn't the same when the song isn't being allowed to be played the way it was written

RE: should music be censored?
Censored or not, you don't need to hear the word to know what it's saying/meaning at our age; It just reads itself on our brains. But we're censoring it for the younger people, pushing, the "bad word" back, so they aren't using it at a too early of an age; regardless of how imminent the word will come to them.
Your life just got better. 

You're welcome.

Well, the whatsoever thingie shouldn't let the recording company to change the whole lyrics.. It's like making them work harder, and the artist too

RE: should music be censored?
If it's an artists re-recording their song to but out a clean version(like cee-lo did with forget you)that's fine, because it still works as a song. If it's like green day using a guitar note as a self-censor ]they did it in "let yourself go"] that's fine. If it's just getting bleeped or being slurred like they did in "still counting" that's not fine.

RE: should music be censored?
Sorry orb but the new generation of children has changed. These are 2k kids now (2k = year 2000 i guess..) and they grow up with foul language and other stuff that they shouldn't be doing. They don't grow up like the 90s kids, with good stuff on tv :/

This is what I see and apparently, it's what a lot of other people see around this country.

It's a shame really.

RE: should music be censored?
No music should not be censored...it should just not have anything worth censoring to start with...

And that leads me to another question...why is it that people want to use certain words...just because it is impolite/unacceptable to do so?

Because....there are other words that are socially acceptable and yet some people insist on using ones that are not, and
I don't need to give any examples of that...as I'm fairly sure you can think of a couple yourself without very much effort.

in those cases I generally dont mind Tongue but the blatant use of profanity just to be using it...doesn't really sit well with me...
