"AP censorship is [expletive] too!" Jagger added

Irony alert: the AP tells us the Rolling Stones weren't so happy about being censored by ABC during their Super Bowl halftime performance ... but they won't tell us what exactly was censored either.

Censorship of their songs during the Super Bowl halftime show was "absolutely ridiculous and completely unnecessary," the Rolling Stones said through a spokeswoman on Tuesday. ...

In "Start Me Up," the show's editors silenced one word close to the song's end, a reference to a woman so sexy she could arouse a dead man. (The song hit No. 2 in 1981, has been played on radio for 25 years, and the lyric is almost never cut.) The lyrics for "Rough Justice" included a synonym for rooster that was removed.

The Stones also performed "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," but the lyric "I can't get no girlie action" made it through unscathed.

Even though "the lyric is almost never cut" it apparently is unfit to appear in print in the AP story on the subject. For the curious, the lyric is, "you make a dead man come." I looked that up and found it surprisingly dirty; it's also a bit more than merely being aroused, where I come from, and I intentionally spelled it the non-naughty way to avert some tawdry search engine hits.
