About I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio

"I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio" is a song performed by Eric Idle, an English comedian and member of Monty Python. It mocks radio censorship of words considered inappropriate (such as "damn," "shit," "arse," etc.). Another similar song, also by Idle, is "The FCC Song", whose refrain "Fuck you very much" is directed at the U. S. Federal Communications Commission. "I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio" touches on the same subject, but includes bleepings and comic sound-effect noises (such as "Cha-ching" or "Yeeaagh!") in place of actual profanity. The song first appeared on Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album, and later appeared on two compilation albums: disc two of The Final Rip Off and the E. P. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Ironically, the song has been known to have been played on the radio quite frequently.

Monty Python

Monty Python (sometimes known as The Pythons) was a British surreal comedy group that created Monty Python's Flying Circus, a British television comedy sketch show that first aired on the BBC on 5 October 1969. Forty-five episodes were made over four series. The Python phenomenon developed from the television series into something larger in scope and impact, spawning touring stage shows, films, numerous albums, several books and a stage musical as well as launching the members to individual stardom. The group's influence on comedy has been compared to The Beatles' influence on music. more »
