* Rap group Music/{{NWA}} (the full name, "Niggaz With Attitude", not generally being printed on the albums or posters). Likewise their 1991 album, whose title "Niggaz4life" was printed reversed (mirror-image) on the album--the album is often referred to as "Efil4zaggin".

* And then the furore over Music/{{Wheatus}} and ''Teenage Dirtbag''. It took a while for radio stations, particularly in Britain, to cotton on to the lyrics
-->Her boyfriend's a dick/He brings a gun to school...
Even though by then everyone knew what the offending lines were, they were still censored.

* When NoiseRock band Pussy Galore titled one of their albums ''Dial 'M' for Motherfucker'', they didn't use it on the cover: the shrinkwrap had a sticker saying "New Album by Pussy Galore", while the spine just said ''Dial 'M'''. You had to look at the label to see the uncensored phrase. Hilarously, ''Dial 'M' for Motherfucker'' was itself a censored title; the band wanted to call the album ''Make Them Eat Shit Slowly''.

* Music/TheBeautifulSouth charted with a song called ''Don't Marry Her''. The version released as a single had the lyric "Don't marry her - have me". Unwary DJ's who played the ''album'' version, however, broadcast the uncensored original lyric "Don't marry her - fuck me!" to the nation. People who thought the LP would carry the same version as the airplay single were in for a surprise as it wasn't indicated ''anywhere'' that the lyrics were somewhat different.

* ''MarriedWithChildren'' had a season three episode where a fishing trip between the Bundys and the Rhoades (Steve and Marcy) goes to pot when Kelly has her period, and soon Marcy and Peg have it as it is physically possible for women's periods to sync up so that way they all have it at the same time. Originally, the episode was called "A Period Piece," but FOX censors objected (never mind that ''MarriedWithChildren'' never showed its titles onscreen and it wouldn't be until the rise of the Internet and cable that viewers would get to see episode titles of their favorite shows), and the show creators retitled it, "The Camping Show."

* New York newspapers had a difficult time reviewing a 2012 play with Creator/ChrisRock called ''The Motherfucker with the Hat'', while getting it across which play they were reviewing. Radio and TV ads were upfront about not being able to use the title.

Not to be confused with {{Bowdleri|se}}zation, as the work only seems less offensive on the surface. Related to GoshDangItToHeck and SoundEffectBleep. Sometimes used when the creator is trying for an IntentionallyAwkwardTitle and the [[ExecutiveMeddling executives say no]].

* Some of the sequels to ''Film/ViolentShit'' display the title as ''VS#''.



* The radio version of "Shit on the Radio" by Music/NellyFurtado was simply titled "...On the Radio" and was also listed under this title on the back of her "Woah, Nelly!" album. However, the album insert lists it under its uncensored title.
* Music/GreenDay's live album, ''Awesome as Fuck'', has the title ''Awesome as F**k'' on its cover.
* Music/{{KISS}}. According to Gene Simmons, they wouldn't let him name the band "Fuck". Similarly, it was pointed out to [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]] that he wouldn't get on ''Top of the Pops'' with a band named "Bastard". So he went with the [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar semi-covert drug reference instead]].
