Censorship remains a hotly-contested issue in music, not to mention many facets of American life. One one hand, of course, you’ve got the First Amendment, which protects freedom of speech constitutionally.

We’re all for freedom of expression here at Sound Beat, and we’re not going to draw the line in the sand. (Now the pre-WWII BBC: they knew how to draw a line in the sand.) All that said, we know silly when we see it. Check out this week’s episodes to see some of the most intriguing, quizzical and downright absurd banned songs in history.
