    Xeni, I love the music… but the funny thing was (as I sat on the couch at home) about to click on this and my 9-yr old was sitting beside me and I said, “hey check this out, this music is great…” and then, bouncing along and a fair volume came, “Back the F**” up!” and then I clicked randomly ahead to “Motherf*****!” Just my luck…I should have anticipated it was NSFH, even though it’s great stuff.

      In my experience, pretty much everything that isn’t specifically intended for children, a formal discourse, or broadcast includes some amount of “profanity”.  It is the norm for communication in our culture, and you should probably expect it when exposing your kids to culture.  I hope it’s not rude to give parenting advice, but hey, you brought it up :)

      More important than sheltering your kid from hearing “bad words” is teaching what are OK and not-OK ways for people to express themselves – regardless of the specific words being used.  Saying “back the fuck up” is way different from saying “fuck you”…and even then, it depends how you say either thing.

    I lived there in the 70′s, I’ll stick with that sound, thanks

      I grew up there in the 70s and I’m totally down with this version. The city’s music should be a living thing that wanders out into the streets and commands you to dance and have a good time.
