I've just found out that the offspring have made a song called "kill the president". It should have been on their first album "the offspring", but the song ain't on my cd, Why?!

Is ther more than one version of that album?

Kill the President was removed from the self titled album in July 2001

Because George Bush sued Noodles for using a t shirt that says "Not my president" and so The Offspring were forced to remove it. :rolleyes:

To be honest they have never actually given a reason. So again this Thread is full of just speculation

No offence to you its not personal, its just there has been lik a thousand threads like this and all say its becasue of 11th of Sept when all the actually evidence point to the fact that it was removed in July 2001 and hence before the Attacks. And each of those threads someone normally puts people straight.
Its been done so many times that you could be my best mate and I'd probally blow up in your face about it. PLus the fact that it is already in teh second post as July just made it worse. So sorry for Blowing up at you but I'm just getting fustated by the repartition.

Yes they have. There might be terrible speculators in here, but I've heard from confident sources that they took it out because... I've already explained that.

Oh Really "Confident Sources", what the hell does that mean. And to only say that Dexter took it off to avoid political issuse seems vague and well… lame.

What is it with you people?
Always arguing about shit that you have no clue about in the first place.
All the kid asked was whether there was a different version of the song!
Then you guys, as always, have to go into some stupid arguement about why they took the damn song off.

You know what?

It doesn't matter! Its gone! Yes, it is rather tragic because that is a great song, but life must go on folks.

Though I must admit that some really memorable ones have occured because of peoples idiocy.




My personal favorite for pointless arguements will always be "OMG DEXTER IS LYKE BALDING!" "NO HE"S NOT BITCH! STFU!!"

There's a diffecence tho between an opinion and making out its a fact. You cant be sued for your opinion of someone but could be sued if you said something that sounded factual but was in fact wrong, know as slander or libel if writen down

So someone can say that I think Bush is a Complete and utter Morronic Idiot and thats fine because its an Opinion
But if you said Bush Sleeps with Corpses as a Past time that would be considered slander.

It's actually a very thin line between the two. But also a very wishy-washy line. In that there is no real division between Whats considered Free Speech and waht could be Slander.

But basically its about whether its opinion or made out to be a fact and whether the infomation said is damagiang to that perosns reputation or not

It was obvious you were joking but other people have speculated a lot maybe not so obvoiusly in this thread but in a mass of other identical threads

Yeah, you're right. Actually, I don't think we have that "right of speech", we have, but there are demagogue governors and all that, which don't let you. I don't know how to say in English, hope you understand me.
