They performed offensive songs — including the anti–New York song ‘New York’s Alright If You Like Saxophones’; had a mosh pit that destroyed the set; and continuously used vulgar language. Concerned they’d destroy the equipment in the studio, the crew cut to a commercial when they began playing ‘Let’s Have a War.'”

“Not only did DJ Muggs smoke weed on national TV, but the band also trashed their instruments at the end of their performance. Safe to say, it wasn’t a huge surprise when Lorne Michaels didn’t welcome them back on the show.”

You Americans... Isn't SNL on at midnight? Yet saying "[email protected]#k" is apparently so controversial you can lose your job? Grow up America.

Remember that Garrett Morris came out, looking like he was going to slam the Rolling Stones for Some Girls, which was, believe it or not, controversial, then asked "where are these girls?" That created lots of upset letter writers and such, and he still catches cr#p for it to this day.
