The Top 10 Controversial Songs


The UK-based Performing Right Society (PRS) has conducted a poll into what most people think are the most controversial songs. It's a pretty standard list to be honest...... it's amusing how some of these songs have been massive hits and they are so common place these days.

Indeed, every teenage kid listens to Killing In the Name Of and heck, when I saw U2 play two nights ago, the mighty Jay-Z sampled Smack My Bitch Up.

Top 10 Most Controversial Songs:

1. Smack My Bitch Up - The Prodigy
2. God Save The Queen - The Sex Pistols
3. Relax - Frankie Goes To Hollywood
4. Kim - Eminem
5. Killing In The Name - Rage Against The Machine
6. Ebeneezer Goode - The Shamen
7. Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne
8. Get Your Gunn - Marilyn Manson
9. Angel of Death - Slayer
10. Dear God - XTC

Clearly this was a British list.... where's GNR's One in a Million? Anything by Prince and did the Brits forget their own punk legend's Anti-Nowhere League's song So What??
