From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio" is a song performed by Eric Idle, a British comedian and member of Monty Python. It mocks radio censorship of words considered inappropriate (such as damn, shit, arse, etc.). Another similar song, also by Idle, is "The FCC Song", whose refrain "Fuck you very much" is directed at the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. "I Bet You They Won't Play This Song on the Radio" touches on the same subject, but includes bleepings and comic sound-effect noises (such as "Cha-ching" or "Yeeaagh!") in place of actual profanity.[1] The song is occasionally featured on the Dr. Demento show.[2]

The song first appeared on Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album,[3] and later appeared on two compilation albums: disc two of The Final Rip Off and the E.P. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.[4]
