Las 165 canciones prohibidas después del 9/11

La música también fue víctima

Ni canciones que habían marcado el sentir patriótico de los norteamericanos como 'New York New York', o aquellas optimistas como 'Imagine' se salvaron de caer en las garras de la censura después de los atentados del 11 de septiembre.

Clear Channel Comunications (la compañía de medios de comunicación con más de 1.200 estaciones de radio bajo su propiedad), se encargó de hacer una lista de canciones que tocaban temas hostiles para los ciudadanos después del doloroso hecho y que no debían ser programadas en la radio o programas de televisión. 

No sabemos si esa estrategia funcionó para componer el estado anímico de los  estadounidenses y muchos medios argumentaron que se trataba de una medida radical incluso para la gravedad de la fecha. Esta es la lista de las canciones prohibidas:
