Fat Bottomed Girls = Family Friendly?

hisfamilyhisfamily Opening Act
edited November 2009 in LEGO: Rock Band
I was quite shocked to find that I Want To Break Free, Another One Bites the Dust, and Somebody to Love were not "family friendly" but Fat Bottomed Girls was. Magic Bus, Who Are You, and Take It On the Run shocked a bit too. I was wondering if Harmonix was done adding songs to the "family friendly" list.

    Except that it's blatantly about drug use. :)

    Alcohol refrence.
    Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
    and
    Warm beer and bread they said could raise the dead
    There is no songs with alcohol references in lego.

    Aww. They should at least have told us the criteria of the song filter or something.

    To stay on topic, Fat Bottom Girls seem kind of sexual, unless I'm mistaken.

    Wait, Who Are You is available now?

    Sweet. Weird though, since it's a song about Pete's alcohol abuse.

    Maybe they left Fat Bottomed Girls in just for the laugh value? Y'know, little kids eat that stuff up. "Hehe. Butts."

    I cant believe Fire made it.

    Everyone knows Kids + Fire is bad M-kay...

    And Ghostbusters? Clearly a hate song... Poor ghosts, they should not be persecuted like that...

    Kung Fu Fighting? Violence as entertainment? Oh my goodness...

    Think of the children...

    ;)

    :rolleyes:

    Kids don't really know what drugs are. When I was a kid, I thought cigars and drugs were the same. Don't Stop Believin kind of shocked me. It doesn't have anything that a kid would notice. Jimmy Buffet songs are happy, so I still think Cheeseburger could be in.

    So What by Pink. It is an on disk song.
    It mentions, "So i’m gonna drink my money", Along with talking about "sit next to Tom boy" who will know how to "hit this"(maybe i am taking this one out of context but i work around kids and they all know what this means), and it repeats over and over again about someone starting a fight. While I have no particular problem with this song it just does not seem kid friendly to me.

    Exact line:

    "I guess I'll go sit with drum boy, at least he'll know how to hit"

    Either that or I'm reading my vocalist text wrong.

    The in game vocals may say that (I am not a vocalist) but that is not what the original lyrics say. I guess it may have been censored, wouldn't suprise me.
    Like I said before, the song doesn't bother me at all. My Kids listen to whatever they want and I guarantee that no music will have them out there killing people or stealing cars or dealing drugs etc, and it will not be because a video game music filter or censorship was in place.

    The filter is a giant contradiction, at least we all know that. No one knows how it really works or doesn't.

    Suffergate City is all about sex yet made it. It even features "Whaming", "Baming", and "Thank you Maming".

    It's clear how it works, to me.

    Ok, here's what they did. They put all of the songs in the game on pieces of paper and tacked them to a dart board. They then threw a hundred or so darts, and whichever songs got hit made it.

    Fat Bottomed Girls promotes positive self image. I expect to see Baby Got Back as LRB DLC as well.

    Win.

    I'm sort of surprised about Fat Bottomed Girls, and Killer Queen didn't. The only possible bad thing in that is "killer", but still that's stretching it and has nothing to do with killing.

    People were saying Don't Stop Believing didn't make it? I guess because it mentions wine. I guess the mention of alcohol, even though the kids are all aware and their parents talk about it, will make them want to impulsively drink.

    "She keeps the Moet et Chandon in a pretty cabinet"

    Moet et Chandon is a champagne.

    Also, much of the references can be made that "she's" a call girl.

    Your post caused me to get drunk. I demand an apology.

    It's nothing to do with coming out. Especially since John Deacon wrote it and he is straight.

    Haha I love how everyone assumes Queen songs have a homosexual context since one member of the band was gay.

    I want to break free is actually about the womens liberation movement and the video was a nod to a popular british soap opera. Neither have anything to do with "coming out"

    Which brings me to the fact that the song is awesome and deserves to make it through the filter! The only reason I can see why it didn't is bolded:

    I want to break free
    I want to break free
    I want to break free from your lies
    Youre so self satisfied I don't need you
    Ive got to break free
    God knows God knows I want to break free

    Ive fallen in love
    Ive fallen in love for the first time
    And this time I know it's for real
    Ive fallen in love yeah
    God knows God knows Ive fallen in love

    Its strange but it's true
    I can't get over the way you love me like you do
    But I have to be sure
    When I walk out that door
    Oh how I want to be free baby
    Oh how I want to be free
    Oh how I want to break free

    But life still goes on
    I can't get used to living without living without
    Living without you by my side
    I don't want to live alone hey
    God knows got to make it on my own
    So baby can't you see
    Ive got to break free

    Ive got to break free
    I want to break free yeah

    I want I want I want I want to break free....


    But Uncle John's Band made it through and it contains (and it's not censored):

    Well the first days are the hardest days,
    Don't you worry any more, 'Cause when life looks like easy
    Street, there is danger at your door.
    Think this through with me, let me know your mind.
    Woh - oh, what I want to know, is are you kind?

    It's a buck dancer's choice my friend; better take my advice.
    You know all the rules by now and the fire from ice.
    Will you come with me, won't you come with me?
    Woh - oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?

    Goddamn, well I declare, have you seen the like?
    Their walls are built of cannonballs, their motto is
    Don't tread on me. Come hear Uncle John's Band playing
    To the tide, come with me, or go alone.

    It's the same story the crow told me;
    It's the only one he knows.
    Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go.
    Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait,
    Woh - oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?

    I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar's Tomb;
    I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune
    Anybody's choice, I can hear your voice.
    Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

    Come hear the Uncle John's Band by the riverside
    Got some things to talk about, here beside the risin' tide
    Come hear Uncle John's Band playing to the tide,
    Come on along, or go alone,
    He's come to take his children home.
    Woh - oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?

    One thing i have noticed is that this filter is stupid. I am sorry but how did Somebody To Love not make it? Also Pinks song does have an alcohol reference in it, as well as encouraging violence. What on earth does Somebody To Love got wrong?

    As I stated earlier in this thread (or was it one of the other content filter threads?), Don't Stop Believing is about 2 people hooking up in a smoky bar and having a 1 night stand. Doesn't surprise me at all that this one didn't make it in.

    Also Call Me transfered and it mentions sharing the wine, plus is about getting your freak on. So if Wine is acceptable why not Cheeseburger in Paradise's reference to cold beer and if hooking up is acceptable in Call Me why not Don't Stop?
