Music Under Attack (Rolling Stone)

Music Under Attack

Support the art,
and the truth that is music.

Explicit lyrics
explicit language
"nigga" "bitch" and "ho."
You can't improve anything
if you ban three words.

Increased regulation of obscenities
Opposition to censorship.
One man's vulgarity
is another's lyric
His fundamental right to express
To change people's lives.

People don't sing happy songs
if they're broke.

Fix our communities,
We'll fix our lyrics.
