    Well... Apple is a "family friendly" company. Explicit lyrics haven't been commonplace with terrestrial radio in the past, and since Apple is advertising it as a "iTunes Radio"... you get where I am going with this...

    totally didnt even pop into my mind about "radio" part, thanks for pointing that out.

    hopefully there is a switch, or maybe an option if you are a itunes match subscriber.

    Seriously???? I was excited about this until I read that.

    I want to listen to music the way the artist intended it to be heard.
    If it plays just "clean" music, then I'll stick with the other services.

    Censored songs? Wow, that was unexpected. Hopefully that will change.

    I would actually like to have the option of this, but not have the clean ones be the only option.

    I remember having a party with my wife's grandmother sitting next to the speakers with a Pandora mix playing. Mumford & Sons starting spouting the F word multiple times. Not the best situation. :)

    It would be great for things like that. Keep the same mix but flip over to "clean" versions for a party.

    Do you see any option you can flip, or is it just clean on Apple stations and explicit on user stations?

    I heard explicit songs on the alternative radio channel. Just don't use the default radio stations.

    I listened to some rage against the machine this morning and it was explicit.

    It looks like explicit lyrics are hit or miss. Some songs are coming up with a "Parental Advisory Explicit Content" badge and others aren't.

    iTunes Radio Explicit mode?

    So far, I'm only getting clean versions of songs. Any way to get the unaltered explicit ones?

    Other users have reported this as well. The justification has been that Apple is a "family company" and many have expresses their opinions. A lot of people will be sticking with Pandora if this remains (per MR member posts).

    Same here, I can't find the option. I'm sure they will include it in a later beta. If not, I'll stick to Pandora.

    Lana Del Rey's "Radio" is currently playing the explicit version, so they are not all clean songs.

    Not true; at least not always. Just created a "Nicki Minaj" station (was the first artist with a lot of explicit lyrics that came to my head) and it's also edited.

    Ugh! They need a toggle for Explicit lyrics. It's annoying listing to bleeps and drop outs.

    What are you guys going on about? There is a toggle for explicit. Just turn the option on.
