* Music/MaxRomeo's 1969 reggae hit "Wet Dream" was not only banned from the air by the BBC, its title couldn't be mentioned either. This led to listeners to Alan Freeman announcing the new chart on Pick of the Pops hearing him mumbling "the Max Romeo record" before passing quickly on to play the next entry. Mark Goodier employed the same tactic in 1996 when he simply said "There's a new entry for Super Furry Animals" without naming or playing it. The song in question being "The Man Don't Give A Fuck".

* 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''.

* The well known theatre production ''Theatre/TheVaginaMonologues'' was retitled ''The Hoohah Monologues'' when locals in Atlantic Beach, Florida complained. Until Eve Ensler heard that they had retitled it, and told them that since changing the name was ComicallyMissingThePoint, they had to perform it under the real name or not at all.

* UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity newspapers had a difficult time reviewing a 2012 play with Creator/ChrisRock called ''Theatre/TheMotherfuckerWithTheHat'', while getting it across which play they were reviewing. Radio and TV ads were upfront about not being able to use the title. Most publicity material stylized it as "Motherf**ker with the Hat."

* ''Film/ZackAndMiriMakeAPorno'' was often listed as simply ''Zack And Miri'', and one poster didn't have the title at all, containing just [[StylisticSuck stick figures]] and the caption "[[LampshadeHanging Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks made a movie so titillating that we can only show you this drawing]]"

* ''Film/ThePopeMustDie'', in which Robbie Coltrane plays a chubby priest accidentally raised to the papacy (who faces an assassination plot as a result). In some markets, retitled ''The Pope Must Diet'' - which, one might argue, is even ''more'' offensive, as now the title goes from trying to kill the Pope to implying that he's fat.
