"Let's start a war" – not on The Box, despite Electric Six's best efforts

"Let's start a war" – not on The Box, despite Electric Six's best efforts

This is bizarre – I’m watching the video for Electric Six’s Gay Bar on The Box (one of those video jukebox channels). For those not in the know, it’s an exceedingly silly if funny and catchy song – and if I tell you that the video has multiple topless Abraham Lincolns singing “I want to take you to a gay bar”, then you’ll know it’s not exactly going to bring the Establishment down.

However, The Box has seen fit to censor – at 1.10am on a Monday morning, when normal kids are all wrapped up in bed ready for school – the song. And which lyrics have they decided to censor?

The ones which go “Let’s start a war… .a nuclear war…” – instead, it just replaces it with the sound of a whip.

Of all the things to get offended about, this gets silly…
