PEARL JAM HAS FREE SPEECH CENSORED BY ATT
London, Aug 11: Rock band ‘Pearl Jam’ have posted the unedited lyrics of the song in which they have criticised US President George W. Bush, on their own website.
The lyrics had been censored when a US telecom firm AT&T webcast a performance from Chicago’s Lollapolooza festival last Sunday.
Two lines from the band’s song ‘Another Brick in the Wall’ were included as part of their song ‘Daughters’, and both of them were cut.
The firm feels that the lyrics should not have been censored during the webcast.
"We regret that this happened and we're upset. Those lyrics in no way, shape or form, are something that should have been edited," the BBC quoted spokesman Michael Coe as saying.
He vowed to take up the issue with the firm that had been contracted to oversee the webcast. He also said that AT&T would seek permission from the group to put the unedited version of the track on its website.
In a statement on its own website, ‘Pearl Jam’ described the situation as "a wake-up call", and said this was "about something much bigger than the censorship of a rock band".
"AT&T's actions strike at the heart of the public's concerns over the power that corporations have when it comes to determining what the public sees and hears through communications media," the statement said.
