@1:23

Dude this is why Brian is sick, not cause these are acceptable things to call women but because he freakin actually said it on stage.

Setzer's never been known for his political correctness. He's said some pretty astounding things from the stage over the years, I'm sure things said offstage are much worse. I've heard him described as a complete redneck. I think bitches and hos (hoes? Ho's??) is a collective slur against women generally used in the African American community, perhaps Setzer was trying to connect with his young black brothers in Maryland. Rolling Eyes

Really? Any examples?? I dont know how to put this but does he really have to be political correct on stage??!?!
If they are his opinions, then they are. I'm not saying I agree with him or anything, but he is self employed
musician, IMHO he doesn't owe anything to anyone and in the same time he takes the risk of his fans not
buying his records etc.

Just my one or two cents, dont' get me wrong

I'm not going to cite examples. Sorry. I have a feeling this thread is on its way to shutdown anyway and I don't think that's a bad thing.

I totally agree with you he has every right to say whatever he wants. Those are his choices to make. I find the fact that he says "uh oh" right after the slur in question to be very telling, I wonder if he feels "uh oh" often. I get the impression he vacillates between not caring if he says something considered unpopular or rude, and doing his best to keep a lid on it for the sake of politeness. That's just my guess. (EDIT: The uproar over "Really Rockabilly" and "Drink Whiskey and Shut Up" are good examples. He walks a fine line.)

EDIT: By the way I should mention I'm not offended by it at all, I think the whole thing is pretty funny.

Third EDIT: When I say I don't think it's a bad thing if this thread is shut down, it's because I know it has the potential to turn into a shitstorm. I wish we could have reasoned and logical philosophical debates about such topics here, but we've never proven to be good at that.

MJCodina,
with all the due respect but... does the word "bitch" need a topic??

I am honestly LMAO!! he just wanted to add a bit of a spark in the song, nothing else than that.

Personally I am so sick of political correctness that I almost lean too far the other way these days!

whenever it comes to a discussion about political correctness, this song from one of my favorite bands - "The Anti Nowhere League" - comes to my mind... So fucking what!? Wink
