** Some of the edits actually make the songs sound dirtier than before, like "Wrap it up / Can't stop 'cause it feels like it's really close" (Wrap it up / Can't stop 'cause it feels like a overdose," from Cascada's "Evacuate The Dancefloor") or make no sense in the context of the song, like "And you out when you ain't got anyone" ("And you wild when you ain't got nothin' on / haha," from B.o.B. and BrunoMars' "Nothin' On You").

Added DiffLines:

* The edit of Zayn's "Pillowtalk" that plays on Macy's "mstyle" radio station, in addition to blanking out the word 'piss' in the chorus (which isn't censored in the traditional radio edit), blanks out any words that even slightly allude to sex, such as "bodies together" and "dirty and raw".

** When he performed his song, "Couch Potato" on Nickelodeon, he had to make a couple of changes, such as removing the reference to the Playboy channel, and slightly alter the lyric, "But I only saw ''Series/WillAndGrace'' one time, one day. Wish I hadn't, 'cause Tivo now thinks I'm gay!" He had his band shout "Hey!" when he got to the last word.

** Maroon 5's "This Summer" has the clean version played with the slight implication of swearing removed from the chorus (making it "This summer's gonna hurt [[spoiler:like a mother]] a-ha, a-ha" as well as the words "smoking" and "champagne" blanked out.



* [=LoCash=] went for a StealthPun in the bridge to "Ring on Every Finger", which contains the line "Droppin' little F-bombs like 'forever'". Apparently this was too much for some listeners, because it became "love bombs" on the radio edit. ''Radio/BobKingsleysCountryTop40'' interestingly zig-zags this, as the show alternates between playing "F-bombs" or just omitting the bridge entirely.

Added DiffLines:

** "Blame it on [[spoiler:Jesus]]" is blanked out from Bruno Mars' "24K Magic", something that even Radio Disney let go. (Interestingly, the clear erection reference to "pretty girls waking up the rocket" is left intact.)
** Several verses are cut entirely from DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts", making the wild thoughts in question Rihanna is singing about rather hard to interpret.
