Why is a song explicit on my desktop, but censored on my phone?

Specifically this version of "Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus: https://open.spotify.com/track/1w2b6f5Cgwy8ZmKdHUBSiW

I have my phone and desktop player on wifi, so I can jump from one to the other. I KNOW it's the same song, as I can change the time on one and hear it on the other. But it censors out 1:12-1:18 on my phone, and plays the explicit version on my desktop.

 

What gives?

It's not censored.. it's just that line.

 

The song says in that exact spot "he brings a gun to school" and for some insane reason spotify thought they should censor that one part of the song and leave the rest of the terrible filth in all their other songs in tact.. because gun to school is worse than murdering hoes after you're through with them... right?

I don't know why but it makes me irrationally angry. There's this song and a Blink-182 song that are both marked Explicit yet I get censored versions, no matter what I do.

This is hella old, but I think it's because the version on Spotify was released on the Columbine anniversary, and also the song was made only a year after the shooting. Wheatus said something about it on their twitter back in like 2013
