Unintelligible At Any Speed

A school band has been instructed to not play "Louie Louie" any longer due to its "raunchy lyrics" - sheesh, you'd think this wouldn't be happening in this day and age. "Louie Louie" is about as obscene as a Sunday School class. I wonder how many lousy hip hop songs the band is allowed to play?

I wouldn't say that hip hop is allowed because people don't want to offend anybody. It's the dominant mainstream music now. Unfortunately a big proportion of it is just terrible with crass, violent, and misogynistic lyrics that seem to get overlooked while an innocent song like "Louie Louie" is still being picked on after all these years.
