Uncensored Foo Fighters Track Causes Radio Controversy

(TeamRock Radio) Foo Fighters track Something For Nothing has landed the BBC in trouble after the corporation broadcast the uncensored version twice within 12 hours.

The song, from upcoming album Sonic Highways, includes the word "f***" twice, which is cut out of the radio-friendly version. But Radio 1 aired the prime edition on Zane Lowe's show on Wednesday night, then again on Nick Grimshaw's breakfast show on Thursday morning.

Both Lowe and Grimshaw issued apologies soon after the track had been played. A spokesman later said: "We take these situations seriously. Having looked into it, the track was played due to human error. We are very sorry for any offence caused." Read more and listen to another new track here.
