Spinal Tap A to Zed

American Bandstand: After the release of "Smell the Glove" in 1984, this popular American teen dance show refused to allow Tap to perform the single, "Hell Hole," unless the band dropped the word "hell" from the lyrics. Derek: "They’d only let us say the ‘hole’ part." (LAT) The episode was reminiscent of problems that the Rolling Stones and the Doors had in the 1960s with Ed Sullivan.
