Added DiffLines:

* Although Music/{{Nirvana}}'s lyrics aren't really objectionable in itself (although they're definitely pushing it) the game shows Music/{{Nevermind}}'s ContemptibleCover fully uncensored, the penis fully visable.

* A rather confusing example: [[Music/{{Gorillaz}} "Feel Good Inc."]] is included and is censored... for the most part. There's a part near the end of the song where Music/DeLaSoul is singing-according to the game's lyrics-"Don't stop, get it get it", but some sources claim that he's singing a [[PrecisionFStrike Precision S-Strike]]. Basically, it's unclear if the game is exploiting a {{Mondegreen}} or not, especially when you consider that it's the same situation when they play the song on the radio.

[[note]]It's likely that the ''profanity'' is a {{Mondegreen}} - the whispered gibberish and "feel good" continue to repeat in the background under De La Soul's verse.[[/note]]

* ...[[CannibalCorpse HAMMER SMASHED FACE]], people! Sure, it may be DLC and have indecipherable, growled vocals, [[http://www.truemetal.org/metalwallpaper/images/tombofthemutilated.jpg but this is the original cover art]] (the game uses censored art). [[http://www.lyricsdomain.com/3/cannibal_corpse/hammer_smashed_face.html And here are the lyrics.]] In case you didn't know, they're about a psychopathic killer... With a hammer!

** Just the fact that they have CannibalCorpse in their catalogue is a ton of shit past the radar.

** ''Rock Band 2'' has another Pearl Jam song, "Alive". It's not too well-known, but "Alive" is actually about ParentalIncest.



* ''Rock Band 2'' gives us "Aqualung" by Music/JethroTull. For those who don't know, the title character is implied to be a ''pedophile'', with lyrics that mention him "eyeing little girls with bad intent" and "watching as the [[PantyShot frilly panties]] run".

Added DiffLines:

* How the heck did "Amazing Horse" slide through?! There's a part in the lyrics that goes "Have a stroke of his mane/He turns into a plane/Then he turns back again when you '''''tug on his winky'''''". What follows after isn't much better: after the woman replies with "Ew that's dirty!", the man who owns the horse notes that he probably shouldn't tell her where the... [[{{Squick}} "lemonade"]] comes from. And then "sweet lemonade" is mentioned throughout the song, just to drive the point home. [[spoiler:[[DontExplainTheJoke The "lemonade" is implied to be the horse's pee, by the way.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* There are two versions of the song "Poker Face" available as DLC: the original Music/LadyGaga version, and a cover by [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Eric Cartman]]. While it would qualify more as a ParentalBonus, keep in mind that the latter version is covered by a character from a series that usually ''isn't'' "T-Rated", so to speak.
** On top of that, the whole reason either version is included is because of a scene where Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny were playing "Poker Face" on ''Rock Band'', despite the fact that the song was not playable in the game at the time.

* Regardless of why the song was included (see "In-Game Elements" above), the lyrics to [[Music/LadyGaga "Poker Face"]] are ''filled'' with [[DoubleEntendre Double Entendres]]. Not only that, but WordOfGod says that Gaga is actually singing a PrecisionFStrike in the chorus that's [[{{Mondegreen}} passed off as "poker face" in the lyrics]].[[note]]Surprisingly, [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Cartman's]] cover actually has him singing the words "poker face", meaning that [[{{Irony}} the]] ''[[{{Irony}} South Park]]'' [[{{Irony}} version]] [[{{Bowdlerise}} is cleaner than the original]].[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''Lego Rock Band'' includes a song ("Dig", to be exact) by the band Music/{{Incubus}}. '''''[[HornyDevils Incubus.]]''''' Granted, that's the name of the band, and the song itself isn't inappropriate, but still. They also got away with Music/BarenakedLadies.

* A lot of the outfits (especially the female ones) could be seen as GCPR, including male bondage gear, AbsoluteCleavage, and a strategically placed snake. How does ''that'' get in a T-rated game?
** VideoGame/RockBand is [[Music/IronMaiden not]] [[Music/{{Disturbed}} exactly]] [[Music/GreenDay a]] [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark kiddy]] [[Music/{{Megadeth}} game.]] While fairly risque, some of the outfits fit in with the rock 'n' roll nature of the game.
* The achievement "Kickin' the Tentacles" in Lego Rock Band sounds awfully like something [[GroinAttack else]]. In a kid's game, too!
* The arcade cabinets in the arcade venue have government warnings saying "[[DrugsAreBad Weiners don't use drugs]]".
** Don't forget the high score screens on those same arcade cabinets. Apparently there are people in the Rock Band universe with initials like "FUK", "ASS" and "POO". That's right, Rock Band got away with an F-bomb in a T-rated game.

** Perhaps it being very much an anti-war song helps.
** Or the fact it's optional in RB, not in [=GH5=].
* Heck, Stupify by Disturbed actually leaves the swearing in [[SingingSimlish because you can't understand what they're saying anyway]]. It's rendered in the lyrics as random yelling.

* There are actually well-listed rules for content of songs for Rock Band Network entries, which align pretty well with what HMX has officially put out, though rely on peer reviews to verify are acceptable.
* In Rock Band 3 (and Guitar Hero 6 for that matter), you've got "[[Music/JanesAddiction Been Caught Stealing]]". If you've wanted to sing about shoplifting, now's your chance. Bonus points if you stole the game [[note]]TV Tropes [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing does not condone]] the [[{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}} cooool crime of robbery]][[/note]]
** Also on Rock Band 3 is Break On Through, including the lyric "she get high", which is pretty tame, but the most popular version of the song censors "high", and this version is heard more often in radio and games (including Tony Hawk). A remastered, uncensored version was released just in time to be incorporated into ''[=RB3=]''.

* Songs that are "family friendly" as labeled on [[http://www.rockband.com/music/songs the online song list]] are the only songs you can play on Lego Rock Band. Apparently "[[FetishFuel Girls On]] [[Music/DuranDuran Film]]" is family friendly, going by the idea that it's about female models.
