Author Topic: 'The Post 9-11 Trance' banned in this country, did anyone hear it?  (Read 5745 times)

The 'Post 9-11 trance' was a 'rap' song of some description that encouraged people to forget about 9-11 and terrorism and dance to some guy in his pad whilst he got all the ladies... or something stupid.. either way, it was awful and it came out far too soon after the 9-11 event... I only heard it once, and I'm pretty sure the BBC banned it from ever being broadcasted again.

Anyone else heard it?

No matches have been played since February 2007, however, when an elephant, protesting a bad call by the referee, went on a rampage during a game, injuring two players and destroying the Spanish team's minibus

I found a link to the lyrics of the song... reading it, he may prove a point in some ways.. but still for me the 'post 9-11' dance is still inappropriate.

I'll leave it to open opinion though

How is it 'inappropriate'?  It's satire, and really people should not be so fucking precious about it.

If your mum died and a week later I did a song urging people to forget about her and do a dance, would you not find it a tad inappropriate?

Judging by the lyrics, the song was not written a week later.  It talks about the war in Iraq, and ramping up the hate on Iran.  This was clearly written in the last couple of years.

Secondly, the cry of 'Everybody do the post 9-11 dance' is irony.  The concept of a 'dance' is pretty clearly a conceit aimed at Bush and Blair and co.  The post 9-11 dance is what you do when you exaggerate and appropriate the threat posed by Islamic terrorism to justify going to war for oil and all that, and imposing harsh draconian 'anti-terror' law-enforcement measures (hence the reference to 'doing you like Brazilians' in the chorus).  The song is pretty obviously not telling people to 'forget about 9/11 and dance like it never happened', it's criticizing those who take part in the 'dance' of the people who have used the idea of a 'post 9-11 world' to pursue their own ends.

The intention of the song seem to  criticize  the fact that  the government is becoming authoritarian and using an event that happened in the past to judge to justify more extreme control and justify new methods of control that said its still tasteless delivery , I mean a dance song is not a good forum for social commentary and with lyrics like "I farted and got arrested for a chemical attack" its no wonder people found it offensive.

Also I would like to point out that the combination of Sailor Moon and faux-Kerouac / Sonic Youth spelling is perhaps the purest distillation of what this forum is that we have yet been presented with.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

Seriously, if it was a wet thursday afternoon I'd pull RHCP from a play-list. Any excuse y'know?

Nobody needs to hear that shit, frankly.

Given the repeated references in the song to the shooting of Jean Charles De Menezes and the 28 day limit I'd say this was written in late 2005 or early 2006.

It's really about the situation in Britain atm, rather than America. Oh and seriously, at the end of the day, do we need to go through the Clear Channel list again? We've been laughing at that for, what, five, six years now?
