Every 9/11 I think about the list of songs and artists Clear Channel arbitrarily banned (excuse me, songs and artists they ""suggested"" not be played) from the radio in the days after. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clear_Ch

@healyn I think my favorite is how Alien Ant Farm’s cover of “Smooth Criminal” was banned, but not the original



@neoncoughh i am losing it going through this list

@healyn 311 were a real threat to national security healyn

@neoncoughh i was saying this for at least 5 years prior to 9/11, but nobody would listen

@neoncoughh wait, why did i think Amber was released in the 90s, and *further*, why did i not know the song is about Nicole Scherzinger, who apparently was engaged to their lead singer at the time?

@healyn because it’s a timeless classic and also the meaning of this song is the new thing I learned today

@neoncoughh useless knowledge is the best kind, that's what i always say
