10 Songs That Were So Censored, There Was Basically No Point Playing Them On The Radio

- Page 1

A good single off an album can make or break most artists, and it's understandable that they'd all like to put their best foot forward so they could get as many sales as possible. However, when you're an artist that skirts controversy with your lyrics, it can be hard to get a song played without censoring it a bit.

These 10 songs went from censoring "a bit" to censoring "a ton," and it's kinda hard to understand why they'd even bother putting them on the radio at all.

Rage Against The Machine - "Killing In The Name"

One of the most politically-charged bands of all time delivered a fiery, angry song, complete with repetitive cries of "F*** YOU I WON'T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!" So of course, it just HAD to end up on the radio.

D12 - "Purple Hills"

Talk about changing a song for mainstream play! The actual title of the song is "Purple Pills," and it's a song about very, very heavy drug use. Why did they chose THIS for the single?!

The Black Eyed Peas - "Let's Get It Started"

One of the biggest smash-hits the band ever had was heavily censored, and you can probably see why when you see what the title of the song actually is: "Let's Get Retarded." Yeah.

Davind Banner - "Touching"

One of the most over the top and crass rappers of all time turned in this sentimental song about touching your lover... except for the fact that the real title of the song is "F***ing." Seriously, why go to the trouble?

The edits just get crazier from here folks.

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


10 Snacks From Your Childhood That You Didn't Realize You Can Still Get Today

Listen, it's fine to reminisce about all the things we used to have, but sometimes it's downright frustrating to remember everything that you want to eat, and then not be able to eat it.

Sure, their health value is questionable at best, but who are we to judge! Enjoy yourself, think of this as the shopping list for your retro theme party! This what you can still get:1.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
