I just wonder why you have to get songs censored the way you do? You literally destroy many songs with that. Maybe cursing doesn't sound so nice, but if you don't like the song they curse on, WHY do you listen to it?
I, as myself, don't care about the cursing but like to listen to the songs meaning. If a rapper made a song with meaning, but had cursing as a way to express himself, you should look at the meaning not the cursing. Maybe you can't find the meaning but that is YOUR problem. Seriously, when a song you like, gets bugged up with suddenly silent moments that doesn't fit in at all... YOU should know what I mean....

This official Spotify solution to this is wrong. I just found out the hard way by listening to the "clean" version of Ill Communication by The Beastie Boys with my 10 year old son! Even though there are two versions available, I can assure you that the one without the "explicit" labels is deifinately not a cleaned up version. It's just not remastered, it's the original release.
Whether or not you agree with censorship or patental guidance and the whole PMRC controversy is of no consequence - it's here and it's a tool for parents to use so they don't have to pre-listen to content to make sure it's okay for kids. The label should be correct and the official Spotify solution should be correct.
