Five years ago, the musical mega-corp Clear Channel allegedly compiled a list of songs deemed unfit to play on the tender post IX/XI airwaves*. At the time I found it ludicrous and more than a little troubling. This year, as the anniversary approached, the idea occured to me to compile a selection exclusively from that blacklist.
And so, in a move driven by pure and unadulterated cheek, here it is.
Hopefully, with 5 years worth of perspective you can appreciate the hilarity of this fine roster of no-nos.
..And, if you're really, really lucky, it'll help you love freedom. ;p
_watchtower_'s List of...
Music To Love Freedom By:
Disco Inferno: The Trammps
Chop Suey: System Of A Down
Wipeout: The Surfaris

Jump: Van Halen
War Pigs: Black Sabbath

A quick note about the selection process: Rage Against the Machine had the illustrious honor of having EVERY SINGLE SONG banished into the wilds insensitivity land.. Therefore, I chose whatever I felt like.
*technically speaking, a recommendation, not a ban.
