Elvis Costello has asked radio stations to stop playing his song "Oliver's Army" because the lyrics contain a racial slur. He wrote the song in 1979, you'd think he'd have known then how offensive the word was... The Rolling Stones are showing similar unease over their song "Brown Sugar". I imagine there are other examples?... of the changing ethical considerations musicians must now navigate in order to maintain a 'social license'.
