Most Controversial Song
April 10, 2008 1:51pm CST
What do you think is the most controversial song of the past 10 years? This is a difficult one for me because my perception of controversial may be different from some. I don't equate controversial with simple shock value. No, the world has plenty of that. I'm looking for songs that made progress in waking people up. If I had to choose one on the spur of the moment it would probably be "American Skin (41 Shots)" by Springsteen. Inspired in some measure by a man shot 41 times by law enforcement while reaching for his identification is pretty powerful. What is your choice? The Spokesman

I can't really think about controversial songs right now but what really comes to mind is a video that would be considered this way. Metallica's Turn the Page. It shows a dancer bringing her daughter to her shows and how she lives the fast life and introducing her child to the dangers of life.
