Scraping Feotus off the Wheel and Butthole Surfers are A-OK!

You gotta love the little addendum at the end.

Anal C*nt is my favorite.

Look them up.

Hilarious!

From the Patton Oswalt bit, I think "Uncle Touchies Puzzle Basement" would be a fun name for a band.

I knew the Crucif*cks would be on that.  A college DJ friend of mine who did the punk show late at night managed to sneak their name onto the air on his last shift.

In other news from two day old Reddit posts. I've never seen an erection the likes of which Fark has for Gawker media. Except of course for the erection that Gawker has for ripping off Reddit posts.

Heh.. Smother Theresa. That's pretty good.
 
2013-02-08 11:38:15 AM  
But they're still allowed to play the music they aren't allowed to talk about, right?
 
2013-02-08 11:39:14 AM  
The Crucif***s have some good tunes.

Some of those I suppose I get, but why not Cannibal Corpse? Or Deicide? Those words aren't inherently dirty. Maybe Satan-ey, but not really offensive.
 
2013-02-08 11:40:23 AM  
Doesn't it seem they could call Fark "Yesterday's Reddit"?
 
2013-02-08 11:40:33 AM  
I'm sad that I only have 7 of those artists on my iPod (including the full catalog of Morbid Angel).  Looks like I have some downloading to do!

Give us a break. Some of us are all grown up now and don't read Reddit or Gawker and appreciate the kids posting this stuff.

Seriously wondering, can they play this?

Can't remember if they were a Cleveland band or just toured there, but my favorite was Sleazy Jesus and the Splatterpigs.

I knew AC would be on there, but Dark Angel?  Impaled Nazarene?

CSB time: I once worked at a college radio station, and I made the rookie mistake of not reading the PSAs before actually announcing them on air.  This PSA was about child abuse prevention, and then I cued up the next song with a, "and now, here is Entombed, with 'Albino Whipped in Black.'"

\may not have been my best moment

fark the FCC prudes in their anuses would be a great band name

You don't ask for permission to play Maiden.  Up the irons!
 
2013-02-08 11:42:08 AM  
Some people think killing god and cannibalism are offensive, and in not for polite, god-fearing company.

Interesting to Pucifer is on there. And Dark Angel. Reading it seems like I should have written down all the "good names for a band" comments I've read on Fark over the years to post in this very thread.
 
2013-02-08 11:42:27 AM  
Who the hell is West Gate, and why are they 'bad'/'popular on pap radio'?
Also, Rhianna is okay?

I wonder if the link I posted above counts as NSFW.  If so, oops, sorry.

Come and get me Old Man FCC!

/ah, my college radio days
 
2013-02-08 11:44:04 AM  
Jucifer, really?  Their indie Athens-rock displeases the Lord?
 
2013-02-08 11:45:51 AM  
I'm going to have to guess that this is at least partially tongue-in-cheek, given the addendum at the bottom of the page.  Someone had fun writing this.
 
2013-02-08 11:45:59 AM  
Ken. By Request Only.

But really, I've heard Butthole Surfers on the radio since 1991. Foetus (sadly), not so much. But why bother having a metal station when you can't be 'evil'? And it's not like they would be playing Bieber anyway. And further - it's ok to put out this memo with all these 'evil' words, which are now stuck in your head, but you can't SAY them? Whoever wrote this should be fired...or at least have their noggin examined.
 
2013-02-08 11:45:59 AM  
It's all fairly ridiculous Roman Catholic university stuff, but you'll be quick to forgive once you realize that mentioning Nickleback and/or Justin Bieber will result in a DJ's immediate termination.

As it should be.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: I knew AC would be on there, but Dark Angel? Impaled Nazarene?


I had not heard of Impaled Nazarene before this, but now I want to hear their music based on the name alone.
 
2013-02-08 11:46:17 AM  
Just another anything-is-more-interesting-the-closer-it-is-to-a-New-York-media person story. You know every Catholic or Baptist college station has the same kind of list, but somebody at The Hall knows somebody at Gawker.

So the Jesus & Mary Chain are okay.  That's really all that matters.

Never watched it, but was it bad enough to ban from radio?


Also, FREE PUSSY OVERLOAD!
 
2013-02-08 11:46:41 AM  
As silly as this is, I do like the secondary list at the bottom.  Kind of sums up that the majority of this was just the "management" getting hamstrung by an uptight faculty.

Queue the argument about Metal != Music

/Just looked up some of these bands
//Most don't have anything to recommend them--beyond amazing upper-body endurance on the part of the drummers
///That could be because most of the videos appear to have been recorded from the inside of a toilet on a Nokia 7650

doczoidberg: Anal C*nt is my favorite.

Look them up.

Hilarious!


IIRC they had some rather amusing song titles as well.  Unfortunately their creativity didn't extend to their actual music, as most songs I heard were intelligible screaming along with a shiatty drummer and overly distorted power chords.  The only exception being "I just saw the gayest guy on earth", which was just vocals and what sounded like a didgeridoo.  But I guess with a name like Anal coont you can't really expect them to take themselves seriously.

Also, if you have an official list of bands whose name you can't even speak on air, let alone play, how do you justify calling yourself 'pirate radio'?  That's about as far away from 'pirate radio' as you can get.

Doesn't it seem you could just stick with reddit instead of spreading to corners of the web that aren't reddit only to complain that those places aren't reddit?

Agreed.

Here's the link to the original post on Reddit:  http://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/comments/182gar/the_list_of_bands_that_ar e _banned_by_the_radio/
 
2013-02-08 11:48:49 AM  
What, no "Dick Stroker and the Pipe Fitters"?

No "Anal Seamen"?

No "Cereal Rapists"?

No "Blondie"?

Come on Seaton Hall.  Update your MySpace page already.

& what a memorable day it was 1985 when this album hit the rotation on good ol'd WBGU FM: (NSFW)

 http://www.discogs.com/Various-Them-Boners-Be-Poppin/release/13600 72

The faculty advisor...was not amused.

Yes, album. Yes, 1985. Yes, my hip hurts.

Jesuseater is great.  In fact, any band fronted by Shawn Brown is instantly great.

Probably not allowed to play anything off that album, just to be safe.  You could probably get away with Powerslave or Piece of Mind though.
