Big Time Rush, Cursing To Children

So usually I don't care and don't listen to those Disney and Nickelodeon singers and bands.  However, I came across the Nickelodeon channel the other day and saw a music video for a song called "Music Sounds Better With U" by Big Time Rush.  I didn't think much of it, considering it's definitely not my type of music and they're just lame.  The mundane background noise while getting ready for school in the morning actually grabbed my attention when I noticed there seemed to be a word censored.

I wasn't completely sure if there was anything censored until it clicked that they used the word "hell".

Now I'm all for bands using bad words in songs to express a strong emotion.  But this band is sponsored by Nick- a children's channel.  They're supposed to be setting an example and in all of the other versions of the song, it isn't censored.

At first, I thought it wasn't a big deal at all.  I couldn't care less.  But since this is a channel that specifically tailors to a younger audience I can only imagine the amount of complaints they're getting from parents.  Sure, they're gonna hear it eventually and I think it's silly that they censored it, but they should've been more conscious of who's gonna hear it.

I think that they should take Big Time Rush's tune off the station, or fix the lyrics.  When I was younger, I'd listen to songs on Disney Channel and Nick and there wasn't a single "bad word".  Now if "hell" is acceptable, I'm nervous for what is next.  Will artists that target towards younger audiences soon find it alright to use "bad words" in their songs?

In retrospect, it may seem like a little bit of an over exaggeration but I find it completely unacceptable.  There's no excuse for it, and now they let "hell" go, there'll be quite a big controversy soon to arise.  I'm just interested to hear the band's side of the story.

Listen to the song here:
