    Stones Slam Super Bowl Censorship

    http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2006-02-08/#3

    Veteran rockers The Rolling Stones have blasted the censorship of sexually suggestive lyrics during their Super Bowl half-time show on Sunday night as "absolutely ridiculous" - despite claims from the National Football League the band consented to the move beforehand. Editors turned down Sir Mick Jagger's microphone for risqué lines in hits "Start Me Up" and "Rough Justice" amid fears a repeat of Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction at the American football event two years ago would prompt another backlash from family TV audiences. But a spokeswoman for the "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" hitmakers revealed yesterday that the band deemed the measure "absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary" and had voiced their opinions to NFL bosses before their three-song set. She added, "The band did the songs they were supposed to do and they sang all the words. There were many, many conversations back and forth and the band clearly was not happy about it." On Monday an NFL spokesman claimed, "We agreed upon it earlier this week. The band were fine with it."

    It does stink. Many complained about the sound system during the performance. It doesn't sound like that was under the Stones control.

    I thought their performance sucked to begin with.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I thought the first song was horrible, but then I hate that song. I liked the second and third, but it does seem Jagger tries anymore to be "Jaggeresque". Like he is trying too much to do all the things with which he is assiciated. But the Stones are my all-time favorite rockers. I really like their stuff from the "Let It Bleed" and "Beggar's Banquet" era the best.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    I'm telling you. I would have far preferred a killer marching band to the watered down, bad sound, wrinkled up 60 somethings out there.

    Give us something that a whole generation of football fans have never seen.

    it's the Stones, for Pete's sake...did the NFL expect they would perform Mary Had A Little Lamb?
    everyone not living in a hermet hole knows the lyrics to Start Me Up. and it sure didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what the censored word in Rough Justice was.

    They had to mix the sound the 1st song, no way did they get a sound check and no way does a small piece band like them sound great from the first chord in the middle of a airplane hanger.

    Yep. People probably wouldn't even know what it was it's been so long since they've seen one.

    How about a year long competition with the winner doing at least some of the halftime show instead of the crap we've been getting? Promote it instead of apologizing about it.

    Nah.... I want to see chariot races around the ring of the field and in the middle of the field I want to see a first grade class role play a couple of Tool songs in a wash of strobe lights.

    But that's probably just me.

    That sounds good to me.

    I'm a little tired of A dino rock bands mailing it in and B bubble gum crap that nobody wants to hear.

    Chariot races would RAWK
    Go Gators!

    we could always relive the horror of a couple years ago, when we had both dino band (Aerosmith) and bubble gum crap (Britney)...at the same time.

    Halftime is a great time to do other stuff--bathroom, fix food, let the dog out, check email and RZ, or just talk.
