Wal-Mart Attempts to Censor Green Day

21st Century Breakdown

In order to sell the new album 21st Century Breakdown by Green Day, retail giant Wal-Mart requested that the band censor themselves by editing their album to remove specific content and language (they will not sell any CD’s with a parental advisory sticker). Of course, the band refused, with lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong saying “We just said no. We’ve never done it before. You feel like you’re in 1953 or something.”
