I dont think so because for some reason channels seem to be playing both Radio Edits and the Real Version.
No one knows whats going on.
I heard an un-censored version of NIN "Only" on Alt Nation just two minutes ago (contains the 'f' word). I think that they just started this in the past couple of days.

Thank you Sirius!!!

Yeah I heard ONLY unedited this afternoon...hmm, that song gets played enough. This song was the most notorious for being edited when all this started. Lately though I've heard a good number of unedited songs on Alt Nation, and people are on other threads saying that Hot Jamz has been playing unedited stuff again as well. It seems that Sirius listened to the complaints and made good. Some people have even sent Sirius "thank you" emails for bringing back the unedited songs. Since everyone was so quick to send letters complaining about the censorship, maybe we should send some showing we appreciate them listening and changing things back......so that way it hopefully doesnt happen again.

I wouldn't be so quick to send them thank you letters just yet. Hopefully you're right and things are changing for the better, but the fact remains that they're still playing radio-edits. Maybe its a slow gradual process in getting the uncensored music back in the playlist, but until things are 100% back to the way they were...we should keep the complaint letters/emails coming.

Chad, what radio-edits have you heard and what station did you hear them on? I haven't heard anymore on Alt Nation lately.

I'n a perfect world I would think our crys were heard and answered with positive results. Since we don't live in a perfect world I'm skepticle too. Yet if its really true then its very impressive to see sirius take sides with its subscribers. It would show that the company is still customer driven and cares about customer relations.

The latest censored song I heard on Alt Nation the other day was "Rock Superstar" by Cypress Hill.

Bleep #1: and take shit from people who dont know what it is

Bleep #2: and everybody shittin on your name

Bleep #3: sleezy people wanna be so cheesy, the fuckin people

And I heard the acoustic version of the song "One Hand In My Pocket" by Alanis Morissette with the "chicken shit" (for the second time) part bleeped out on the new The Coffee House channel.

Dear Sirius. We think you may have stopped censoring songs though you never told us you were going to censor them in the first place. Although you based your entire service on being uncensored, Howard Stern was switiching to Sirius because it WAS uncesored, all of the sudden without warning, you started censoring the music. So we'd like to thank you for maybe not censoring anymore. But if you are still then we don't, in fact, thank you at all.

If you disagree then thats perfectly fine but sarcasam isnt necessary. Im for positive reinforcement. When they make things right again, let em know you're glad they did. But when they do wrong, then sure as hell let them know that too.

All these people who are supposed to be getting Sirius between now and January for uncensored Howard Stern will be unpleasantly surprised to find out the music portion is censored. But hopefully with all Sirius subscribers calling in to his show we'll have the voice to change things.

And will also insult your intelligence at the same time


So protect your family.
This album contains explicit depictions
Of things which are real.
These real things are commonly known as life.
So, if it sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously.
If it sounds dangerous,
Do not try this at home or at all.
And if it offends you, just don't listen to it.

I think it is obvious that they get edited versions mixed with unedited versions sometimes, they really need to pay more attention.
