Our friends to the North are not immune to the disease of politically correct language excisions. Just as we seek to take the ubiquitous "N-word" from the lexicon of Mark Twain but not Chris Rock, so Canadians dare not be offended by 1985 rock songs.

I wonder how they deal with gangsta rap's language? Would their be anything left to play?
So, for all of my Canadian friends who can't hear the song in their homeland, we here at Radio Free Thunder offer this:
Hahahaha! They didn't let them use faggot at Wembley in 1985 either! I guess the Queenie wasn't offended!
But in 1992 after a bit of teasing we get:
Gosh! No faggots needed to apply at Nimes. I hope mothers weren't offended.
Ooops. Of course we wouldn't find any faggots in California.
No Dutch faggots either! Maybe the Canadians are just getting the word 25 years too late? Slow communication or politically incorrect previously? I'm so relieved.
