8:55 AM Hot Jamz censored Method Man Bring the Pain


WHAT THE F MAN
I knew it was too good to be true. If by some chance it actually was a mistake, there's a very quick remedy to stop all of this from ever happening again...remove all radio-edits from the system. Problem solved.

Don't worry, our voices will be heard. Once more Stern fans get here there's going to be a lot more complaints about this and I'm sure more will be done to stop this. It's been said a million times, but just continue sending the emails and writing those letters.

Well, I'm sorry because we're not paying $12.95 a month to hear censored music just to shield your goddamed kid from what you deem offensive. Jesus, can we please impose some sort of rule around here that says you can't use your child as an excuse to censor music and programming just because YOU have certain religious beliefs/values ...it's getting very old people. Learn to use the fucking parental controls like everyone else and quit trying to dictate what everyone can and can't hear. Enough already.

Chad,

He pays 12.95 just like the you, and so his opinion counts just as much as yours.

Chill pills just aren't that effective. I find its better to speak your mind and get all that aggression out of your system...you feel much better afterwards.

Wow! I can't really say I expected to come in here and be threatened with violence for simply expressing my viewpoints. There's plenty of ways I could respond to that, but I'll keep my mouth shut.

And Manco - Of course it does. His opinion counts just as much as anyone elses, but why come into an anti-censorship thread just to say that you want this sort of thing to be taking place? That's obviously going to get people's blood boiling when we're in here fighting to get this crap to stop.

who listens to rap not expecting sexual connotations/foul language? have you ever actually read the lyrics to a rap song....i think people who are listening to those channels know that fact therefore sensorship of those channels is absurd. Plus cursing is a staple of rap music...sensor it and its lost so much meaning.

i mean...sensoring Sirius Hits 1 is rational...even though i dont agree, i can see where people are comming from. But PLEASE no other channels.

Those specific songs that were sensored might just be the copy of that song they happen to have on file. it happens with Stone Sour's "bother" on octane, yet its an unsensored channel.

For someone who claims they want to end censorship, you sure don't like hearing from someone that disagrees with you. Do you want to "censor" their opinion?

Maybe some day you and many of the other posters in this thread will mature a bit more and understand that profanity makes the user sound stupid not hip.

I think you owe the lady an apology.

i find it ironic that people want "family friendly" sounding versions of songs that are blatently about anal sex and drugs.

you shouldnt shield your children from curse words just teach them that they shouldnt be used.

Default Defending Sirius

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, so...

I work in radio in a small town in Greencastle, PA. I'm the live on-air jock from midnight to 6am. I know that when music comes to us for importing and playing, much the same as Sirius receives it, it is on an audio compact disc with the cuts ALREADY EDITED by the label releasing it.

I've noticed that sirius has been playing edited content, but they themselves did not edit it.

While I agree that for $12.95, or the $500 lifetime subscription, we should be allowed to experience the unedited raw version of the song, don't attack them for playing the edited content if that's all they received.

Personally, I don't care if a song in Sirius is edited or not. If I want to hear the full version, I'll go download it. I have Sirus for their WIDE ARRAY OF CONTENT that I can listen to anywhere I drive my car inside the United States. I think their commitment to ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING and their diverse music channels is reason enough to subscribe.

If you want uncensored, Stern is on the way. Until then, can we stop attacking EACH OTHER?
