"I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio" is a song performed by Eric Idle, a British comedian and member of Monty Python. It makes a mockery of the various censorships put on 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 curse words.This song, only 50 seconds long, mocks the censorship of radio broadcasting.
