What It Used To Be

"What did it used to be called?" asked the guy next to me at Live Oak Market in South Austin.

"Kronik," replied the store owner.

I turned to look at what they were talking about. The guy had a six pack of beer with a label that lookeds as though a big 'Censored' sticker had been placed over the label.

"What did you say?" I asked, not sure I had heard him right the first time.

"Kronik," he says. " They even spelled it right, too. The ATF wouldn't allow them to call it that so they changed the name to Censored because it was."

We all cracked up.

Soundtrack for this post, Louie Louie by the Kingsmen, the most censored and banned song that I can think of.
