Did You Know That These Songs Were Banned? See Why…

(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction – The Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones have been around for a while and believe it or not; Mick Jagger still rocks the stage at age 76. The Stones’ early days were among their most “devious,” if you remember. Their music was being highly censored, and in 1965, when they were performing on the radio variety show ‘Shindig!’ their hit song “Satisfaction” became something of a problem.

The lyrics “trying to make some girl” was met with real criticism for its sexual innuendos and statements about commercialism. The song was then banned from getting air time on that radio station. Ironically, when The Rolling Stones performed at the Super Bowl in 2006, this was actually the only song that didn’t have to be censored.
