My friend just bought self titled, only it didn't have Kill The President on. Does anyone know what's happened to it?
I bought my copy around 3 years ago and it was on then. I'm just hoping it hasn't been banned or anything. I remember a fair while ago on here someone posted a so-called threatening message to the president and the board was temporarily shut down so the system may think it's in danger...

from what I've heard, the song was removed from further printings of the album after the 9-11 attacks

While I disagree with it being taken off, it was dexters own decision. My friend asked him about it at a TSOL show.

yea, i seriously doubt anyone forced them to take it off, but the band probably realized that was something the country didn't need at that point in time, but i do agree that the the fcc needs to chill.

But I've heard Dexter say on a recording of one of their concerts before they played the song, "This song isn't about assasination, it's about talking control of our own lives." So if it isn't even really about killing the president, why take it off?

Aaargh! There was a post about this like three days ago! Use your "search" button, for cripes sake!

I believe they took off Kill the President after 9/11. I don't see why they needed to do that, but they did, so that's that.

No they haven't. They changed the lyrics for that song when years ago. They released a LP with Baghdad on it, and put Tehran on the self titled album.
