I seen in an interview frank was talking about being asked to record plain sailing weather with an alternative lyric to make it radio friendly. Frank basically told the guy to fuck off. Whether this has an impact on the song being released as a single or not I don't know, think it would sound a bit weird with half the chorus missing!

Tbh, I suspect the "Goddamn"s will be equally if not more problematic over here. Unfortunately the country is half "red" or conservative. A shame though, it's a favorite song for me. Losing Days or Polaroid Picture would do nicely.

Plain Sailing Weather is probably the best song on the album. If Rage Against The Machine could release Killing In The Name, then why not?
Haha. I actually was thinking today the same thing. It was their first single ever and the song have 18 fuck you and 1 motherfucker :D

The difference being RATM were not looking to get in the charts with that song. It would be a little silly, what with all the progress made in the last few years, to release a single that Radio1 won't play.

Fucks can be blanked (that kinda sounds like advice for those awkward morning after moments...) but I think it would take away from the song somewhat. Is 'goddam' really an issue? That wouldn't have occured to me...

I bloody love Polaroid Picture, would really like to see it as a single.

Actually I'd say it was more a case of the swearing being a novelty. That's how I remember it from the time. Not really something I'm interested in.

I'm a conservative so to speak and I don't have a problem with goddamns and fucks. Lots of people are fiscally conservative and not religious.

Thinking about it the goddamns might be a problem. I remember Fall Out Boy's This Ain't a Scene It's An Arms Race had its goddamns censored

As did Green Day's East Jesus Nowhere. Frank's swearing is not gratuitous, it's actually artistic, and I can't imagine Plain Sailing Weather all chopped up with bleeps.

Losing Days is very poptastic - but that would mean the first three album tracks are all singles.

That's not an issue but hearing them on the radio so much tends to make me skip them on record.

Guess I'm the only one who thinks "Wherefore Art Thou Gene Simmons" would make a good single?

Maybe people haven't suggested it cos its a bonus track, or they just aren't a fan of it.

Doesn't matter if it's a bonus track, it made it onto the album. I heard Frank say on the Google Live chat say he has a hard time picking what tracks make it on the album, and which become bonus track. Like I Am Disappeared, for example.

It's only on the deluxe version though so not everyone will have it. I'm a little confused as to what you mean about I Am Disappeared, that is an album track.
