    Way to go, Canadia! Ban a song from 1983(?) for containing the word "faggot" used in the context a 15 year old might use it.

    Keep it up with the PC crap....you'll be the Islamic Peoples Republic of North America within 50 years.

    doesn't that word mean something completely different in Europe? Isn't Canada basically a gay European country anyway? I don't get the logic?

    Angel, push your beefcake at a Pats forum! :mad: ;)


    That tune is a lampoon, a send-up of bigoted blue-collar workers looking at MTV for the first time in an electronics store; not an anti-gay chant.

    Surprising that Canada missed that one.

    Canada has also decided that they will play the song backwards for the next 27 years to undo the damage that has been done.

    I was wondering when this was going to start happening. I'm actually shocked that it hasn't happened here.

    I feel that JI should follow suit as regards to that offense word.

    Next on the to-be-banned list: Pink Floyd


    In the Flesh (From "the Wall")

    So ya
    Thought ya
    Might like to
    Go to the show.
    To feel that warm thrill of confusion,
    That space cadet glow.
    I've got some bad news for you sunshine,
    Pink isn't well, he stayed back at the hotel
    And they sent us along as a surrogate band
    We're gonna find out where you folks really stand.

    Are there any [B][U]queers[/U][/B] in the theater tonight?
    Get them up against the wall!
    There's one in the spotlight, he don't look right to me,
    Get him up against the wall!
    [B][U]That one looks Jewish!
    And that one's a coon![/U][/B]Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?
    There's one smoking a joint,
    And another with spots!
    If I had my way,
    [B][U]I'd have all of you shot![/U][/B]

    Pink Floyd should just be banned for overall crappiness.

    So Dire Straits is a British band, and in Britain the word faggot means a bunch of sticks, like what the dude is carrying on the cover of Led Zepplin IV, but Dire Straits uses the word in the way that they think an American Blue Collar worker would use it. Well, I'm an Amercian Blue Collar worker and I am offended that the Dire Straits think that I speak like that! Ban!!!
