Is it "Jordan, Minnesota"? I did play that on the air, once. I think the studio version is clean, but every time it comes up in listserv discussions, one or two people insist that it's not. So, there you go.

Or, is that not what we are talking about?

Yes, Jordan. I don't remember the details, but it's about a really sick thing that actually happened in this town, where much of the town was aware of and involved in a ring of child sex abuse.

I'll believe that there is a clean version, but the whole point of the song is much more offensive than the word 'fuck'.

That is true. It was probably not the best track to play on "Minnesota" Theme Thursday, but I was young and needed the money.

when pam and i used to do the morning show we played that song once and she told me that one her best friend's dad was one of the people implicated in the child sex abuse and that it wasn't true. so, who knows?
