Caught The Who 'The Vegas Job' on a cable channel this morning and found to my disappointment they were being censored. During "Who Are You". Roger Daltrey sings , "who the fuck are you?" only the eff word is replaced by a "beeep". Well, what the beeep is going on when a perfectly beeping good song is ruined by the beeping tv station deciding to beep out all swear words?

Excuse me but couldn't the concert have been screened later on, during the evening when all the little darlings are tucked up in bed and safe from corruption, y'know duh?
Apart from anything else, what's the fucking point? Your average kid is not likely to go around the school playground singing his grandad's music just because it uses a naughty word.
Even our music is being sanitised now and since children probably use worse language than that, I don't see how it gets us any further towards a civilised world.
Mind you the failure of capitalism is possibly a step in the right direction.
In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.
