FUSE TV - 7 Music Videos You Didn't Realize Were Censored

While stories of banned music videos are legendary at this point—from M.I.A.'s ginger-killing "Born Free" video to Robin Thicke's topless version of "Blurred Lines" to a sizable chuck of Madonna's videography—censored music videos tend to fly under the radar. In fact, you've probably watched dozens of censored clips without even realizing they were altered by the broadcasting powers that be.

In the following seven music videos—a few of which are stone-cold classics—"offensive" words are replaced, other lyrics are outright dropped and visual segments are tastefully trimmed. Check out these (often questionably) censored videos.

Sorry, the listicle you’re looking for is no longer available! Try these recommended videos.
