#35 – Third Eye Blind – “Semi-Charmed Life” – (1997)

This was Third Eye Blind’s biggest hit and a defining song of the 90s. I heard this on the radio this morning, and I could clearly hear the lead singer say “Doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break.” Now, I appreciate unedited anything, as I am 100% anti-censorship, but why is it Third Eye Blind can sing about crystal meth, but Ke$ha (I know, “why are you listening to Ke$ha?”) gets the words “bottle of Jack,” “junk,” “crunk,” and “tipsy” blurred out of her song? It doesn’t seem right, but I’m not complaining. Just leave my kick-ass 90s songs intact.
