Even radio stations have stopped playing certain songs just because they feature names similiar (but having nothing
at all to do with violence or terrorism) words in thier lyrics or titles. Examples: Learning to fly by the Foo Fighters; Speed Kills by Bush (it's named was changed). Hollywood and radio stations
are doing just what the terrorists wanted, making us change our way of living.
You are absolutely correct -- they're taking this PC business way too far. I can't believe they would change the title of "Speed Kills" in the wake of this disaster! For the obvious reasons, it is clear to me that the song "Speed Kills" is about just that -- SPEED, dope, shit, crank, meth -- and how it turns you into a freaky asshole (speed kills your presence of mind) and makes you treat your family and friends like shit (the things we do to the people that we love).
Yeah, I know what he means. My interpretation may be off, but I know what *I* heard in the song -- and the title "Speed Kills" is totally appropriate.
They certainly screwed up one hell of a public service announcement.
