* ''[[Film/MeetTheParents MeetTheFockers]]'' had parts of the last word replaced by asterisks in some published reviews because it sounds too close to "fucker". Note that they were only able to get that title by proving that there is a real family with the last name Focker.

* The Music/BritneySpears song "If You Seek Amy" (which actually is a remake of an old song called "If You See Kay," which also met with controversy over what it implied) is often changed in radio edits (both in title and in the lyrics; see the [[{{Bowdlerise/Music}} Bowdlerization page]]) to "If You See Amy" or just "Amy"

* Music/MaxRomeo's 1969 reggae hit "Wet Dream" was not only banned from the air by the BBC, its title couldn't be metioned 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".

* UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity 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. Most publicity material stylized it as "Motherf**ker with the Hat."

* The roleplaying supplement for ''[[TabletopGame/BigEyesSmallMouth BESM]]'' titled "Cute And Fuzzy Cockfighting Seizure Monsters". The "Cockfighting" had to be removed from the title to sell it in regular stores (comics/gaming specialty stores still got the uncensored title).

* ''The Pope Must Die'', 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.

Added DiffLines:

* Some Music/GGAllin album and song titles were censored for retail stores. ''Eat My Fuc'' became ''E.M.F.'' and the original album art (a crude drawing of a penis; GG claimed he traced his own member for the cover) was changed to a photo of GG.
** ''Hated in the Nation'' had the majority of the song titles censored. This was usually done by using abbreviations (e.g., "Drink, Fight, and Fuck" became "D F & F") or dropping the offending word or phrase, such as "I Wanna Fuck Myself" being listed as "Myself." However, two songs' censored names strayed from this formula:
*** "Eat My Diarrhea" was awkwardly renamed to "Eat My Leftovers."
*** "Ass-Fuckin' Butt Suckin' Cunt Lickin' Masturbation" became the more sophisticated "Multiple Forms of Self-Satisfaction."

* "Star Star" by Music/TheRollingStones was originally "Starfucker" but changed at the insistence of the record label. The chorus is still a huge ClusterFBomb though, and the band always refer to the song as "Starfucker". (Atlantic Records distributed the label's releases. Ahmet Ertegün actually wanted them to also change the lyrics... to remove mentions of Creator/SteveMcQueen, Creator/JohnWayne and Ali [=McGraw=], since he was afraid they would sue.)
