Songs NOT for 9/11
OK, I can understand a few of these songs might offend or exasperate someone in mourning, such as Filter's "Hey Man, Nice Shot" or Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls Of Fire". These aren't "get up and dance at a funeral" songs (then again, what is a get-up-and-dance-at-a-funeral song?), songs that will help heal the pain.
But, what is contained in the lyrics of the Beatles "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" or or Louie Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" that is so offensive? I would think that Satchmo's song would be soothing and relaxing. Maybe it wasn't such a wonderful world after all, I guess.
I found this entry rather interesting:
Rage Against The Machine – all songs
This is also the same group that had a rather distinct way of protesting against censorship at Lollapalloza 1993.
What I'd like to find is a list of songs deemed inappropriate for use in extracting information from terrorists. Would it include...?
Britney Spears - All songs
N'Sync - All songs
Billy Rae Cyrus - "Achy Breaky Heart"
"Stop, stop, I tell you, I tell you where guns of big boom are, just no play whoops I did again! Allah why have you forsaken me?"
