Jeffrey Morgan’s Media Blackout 

Do you hate censorship? Do you believe in freedom of speech? Are you against historical revisionism? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, then sharpen your pencil because it’s time for a Media Blackout pop quiz. This is a two-part question with no time limit. The correct answer will be given next week in the 72nd edition of Jeffrey Morgan’s Media Blackout. Begin.

PART ONE:

A well-known American record label has just reissued a classic album without one of its original tracks because a special interest group found it offensive and successfully petitioned to have it removed. From the following list, pick which song has been censored and forever deleted from the history of rock ’n’ roll, never to be heard again:

"I Wanna Be Black" by Lou Reed

"Mongoloid" by Devo

"Johnny, Are You Queer?" by Josie Cotton

"Mustapha" by Queen

"Safe European Home" by The Clash

"Indian Giver" by Ramones

"Shah Shah A Go Go" by The Stranglers

"A Small Circle Of Friends" by Phil Ochs

"Welfare Mothers" by Neil Young

"Qu’ran" by David Byrne & Brian Eno

"Israel" by Siouxie & The Banshees

"Belsen Was A Gas" by Sex Pistols

"He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)" by The Crystals

PART TWO:

In the space provided below, list which songs will be next.
