    That was the first song I learned in Open G tuning on my old Mexican Tele.

    Hah, yeah, I've heard that before.

    Not the first time they've put a song in the time out chair. They didn't play Sympathy For The Devil for years.

    "Woo Woo!"

    This is the obvious take but the people who fetishise being offended have no time for nuance

    The lyrics do seem pretty dark when you read them however I just watched a live version from when they were in their prime and you can barely even understand what he’s saying during the verses.

    I have head this song a million times and never understood most of these lyrics. And I have always misheard the "how come you taste so good" line as "you know your daddy's no good". Crazy.

    The real surprise is that Meredith Hunter isn’t interjected into the story.

    Finally. Next we need to tackle the black or white song by Michael Jackson. Why only black or white why not brown?

    It's up to them bit it would be good if people actually understood what lyrics in a song were about before they bitched.

    Take "Black Betty " or even "American Women ".

    That's the problem now days people don't research just jump of they think something might hurt someone's feelings.
