Was Poe Censored for "The Tell-Tale Heart"?

Hi, I am doing a report on censoring and I came across a song by Good Charlotte that was based on "The Tell-Tale Heart". I was wondering if you knew if "TTTH" was censored or if people protested against it? thanks.

There was... / Police and flashing lights / The rain came down so hard that night and the / Headlines read "a lover died" / No tell- tale heart was left to find. (Good Charlotte, 'Bloody Valentine')

And no. There was no censorship issue surrounding 'Tell-Tale Heart' (or any other Poe tale or poem for that matter).
