5 songs that offended the world

 

Every now and then, we get to hear one song that has lyrics unacceptable to some group or some segment of the society. With half the world cribbing over not having enough freedom of expression, and the other half only being silent, musicians took to themselves to create songs with lyrics that could bring about change. Most of the times, the angst and the free flow of thoughts of the musicians ended up making controversial lyrics. Here are top 5 songs that really shook the world with their lyrics:

God Save The Queen

No, we are not talking of the British national anthem. Even though this song by The Sex Pistols shares its name with the anthem, it is nothing like the latter. It only talks about the Queen being fascist, and how the country doesn’t really have a future. Of course, it hurt the sentiments of a lot of people, considering how much they love their queen. Even though the BBC banned it, it did manage to become a Rock classic.

Money for Nothing

This song by the British band Dire Straits comes from their 1985 album called Brothers in Arms. Mark Knopfler and Sting share the songwriting credits. Even though Knopfler’s idea was to use as realistic lyrics as possible, some people took them to be sexist and homophobic, also a little racist. The lyrics actually originated in an appliance store where a worker was commenting on some music videos playing on the TV, and Knopfler decided to borrow a pen and paper, and started noting them down.

Suicide Solution

When Bon Scott, former AC/DC member passed away because of alcohol abuse, Ozzy Osbourne decided to write a song as a tribute to him, in which he referred to alcohol as ‘suicide solution’. Even though Ozzy is anyway famous for his strong lyrics, things got a little out of the hand with ‘Suicide Solution’, as a teenager shot himself dead while listening to the song. The court however, did not find Osbourne guilty when the parents charged him.

Used To Love Her

This song by Guns ‘n Roses wasn’t really taken well by feminist organizations around the world, because the lyrics clearly stated that a man used to love his wife once, but now he wanted to kill her. Even though the band members said that the song was written as a joke, and there were rumors that the ‘wife’ in the song actually referred to Axl’s dog, which had to be killed later and buried in the backyard, women around the world were pretty offended.

‘Kim’ by Eminem

This is again a song written for a wife, except that this time, it was actually meant for Eminem’s wife Kim, with really mean lyrics, stating how he murdered her, her husband and her stepson. During Eminem’s performance in Detroit, Kim saw the audience’s reaction and tried to commit suicide because of that. Later, she filed a case against the musician for defamation, and for mentioning her violent death in the lyrics of the song.

Slayer vs Westboro Baptist Church: ‘Crazy Train’ Parody At Jeff Hanneman’s Funeral

May 5th, 2013 by
God Hates Metal

God Hates Metal according to Westboro Baptist Church

Westboro Baptist Church are at it again with the horrific announcement that the bastards plan to picket the funeral of late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Claiming that they will sing their “parody” of Ozzy Osbourne‘s “Crazy Train” “at full voice” during the Slayer guitarist’s funeral.

Jeff Hanneman died at approximately 11:00am on Thursday the 2nd of May near his Southern California home. He was just 49. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. Due to a terminal illness called necrotising fasciitis which he is thought to have contracted from a spider bite, 2 years earlier.

Necrotising fasciitis is more commonly known as a flesh eating disease, which is caused by a bacterial infection of the deeper layers of skin and subcutaneous tissues.

“Necrotizing fasciitis is quickly progressing, having greater risk of developing in the immunocompromised due to conditions like diabetes, cancer, etc. It is a severe disease of sudden onset and is usually treated immediately with high doses of intravenous antibiotics.” – Wikipedia

Jeff Hanneman of Slayer dies 2nd of May 2013

Jeff Hanneman dead at the age of 49

Slayer fans have become outraged by the news, with social media sites like Facebook daring the church to even try to protest at the event, that they might meet their quick demise. The onslaught of Hate for the church has been universal by the metal community.

Westboro Baptist Church — is fringe group of fundamentalist Christians who continues to make headlines around the world for their extreme anti-gay views and outrageous protests at the funerals of U.S. soldiers, regardless of the soldiers actual sexuality. The so called “Church” first used lyrics from the Ozzy song “Crazy Train” at events surrounding a Supreme Court hearing in 2011. Two daughters of the church’s founder used the paraphrased lyrics from the song at the post-Supreme Court hearing press conference in Washington D.C.

Ozzy shows his disgust for the Westboro Bastard Church

Ozzy commented “I am sickened and disgusted by the use of ‘Crazy Train’ to promote messages of hate and evil by a ‘church,'” in response to the news of his song being used by Westboro Baptist Church.

In a June 2010 during an interview on “Rockline”, Ozzy Osbourne slated the Westboro Baptist Church’s protest of Ronnie James Dio’s funeral. “I thought it was in such bad taste that those people had those banners about Ronnie James Dio. That’s disgusting. They say that we’re the anti-christ. Well, what makes them any better?”

Crazy Train Parody on YouTube

The Westboro Baptist Church has even had the audacity to publicise their awful “parody” of “Crazy Train” on YouTube. I have included it for reference, but I really don’t enjoy sharing anything these worthless excuses for human beings have created.

Westboro Baptist Church’s “Crazy Train” “parody” lyrics:

Amazing, that’s how God rolls.
Millions of people, drowning in woe.
Crazy, it’s much too late.
To speak about love, when you brought on is hate.
Crying about your feelings, or your sin, no shame.

You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

Let’s go!

You listen to preachers, your leaders are fools.
You’re raping false prophets, who make their own rules.
The base is ascending, to rule and control.
The media sells it, and you pay the toll.

The station goes deceiving, their torment you in flames.
You’re going straight to hell, on a crazy train.

We’ve told you your destruction is imminent.
You should have listen to our words.

Isn’t God’s fury?, That’s forced onto them,
The ruling rebellion, God is made to numb.
Crazy, the pride as you well.
Your birth will be brutal, he will say what is fair!

God is not been sleeping, he’s gonna bring the pain.
It’s time for your final ride on this crazy train.
Your final stop is hell on this crazy train.

Other disgusting stuff the Westboro Baptist Church has been up to

The Wall Street Journal describes the Westboro Baptist Church as a “tiny Kansas church who preaches that U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are punishment for America’s tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.”

‘You’re Going to Hell,’ ‘Thank God for Dead Soldiers,’ and ‘God Hates You’ are some of Westboro’s favourite slogans to use at their gatherings.
