20 Most Controversial Songs Of All Time

17. The Shamen - Ebeneezer Goode

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b2T8K2D-ps 'Ebeneezer Goode', by British electronica/dance group The Shamen, was released in September 1992 and quickly became one of the more controversial UK number-one hits of the decade. Utilising none too subtle references to recreational drug use, the chorus infamously sang 'Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode, He's Ebeneezer Goode' (the analogy to Ecstasy, not particularly well disguised, incurred the wrath of the BBC who initially banned it from broadcast). 'Ebeneezer Goode' entered the British charts at number six before reaching the heady heights of number one just two weeks later, ironically during the BBC's drug awareness week. Perfect timing!

I love Heavy Metal, and generally anything that involves a guitar and loud noises, so I figured it was about time I put all the useless information in my head to good use and start writing a few things. Most of the time I'll be writing nonsense but occasionally I may surprise myself and appear half-way knowledgable.....but you can be the judge of that. Thanks for your fleeting attention!
