Please just censor Eoghan McDermott - the airwaves would be a much better place - shock/profanity has always been a part of good rock n'Roll from the Sex Pistols to NWA - if you dont get , get off the airwaves - for those offended listen to the Ronan Keating version or Daniel O'Donnell , but let us enjoy our rock nroll undiluted

Try Ed Sheeran.

Sorry, what? I appreciate that not every use of the word "fággot" is necessarily intended to be homophobic but it absolutely was, is and will continue to be used as a gay slur in this country.

Anyway, I concur with the sensible posters who recognise that this song has been played in censored format for several years along with tons of other music with swearing/offensive language in it. I appreciate that a lot of the NPCs love to moan about PC brigade this and snowflakes that, so crack on and do what makes you happy, for 'tis the season to be happy and joyous

He's insufferable. As soon as I saw the headline I knew it was him

Eoghan McDermott used the word ‘simples’ to conclude his explanation.

This is why he must, without hesitation, be shot in the face with bullets fashioned from his own frozen shyte.

Why do some people on here get so annoyed about the idea of that word being bleeped? Swearwords are regularly bleeped from songs, and there doesn't seem to be any kind of outcry. What is it about that particular word that you love so much?

sorry not up to date on my snowflake sounds -

i find Eoghan McDermott and his like , the anthesis of what rock nroll is about , is it any wonder modern music is in such a poor state , when he is a modern mouthpiece for for our national music broadcaster.

this is why the internet is a pain - without it these offended tossers would just moan and whine into the air and no one would realise it.
