All That Glitters Isn't Gold

The NFL has decided to banish the playing of Gary Glitter's glam-rock anthem "Rock 'n' Roll, Part II," also known as the "duh duh duh, HEY!, duh duh duh duh" song. The decision came after Glitter was once again convicted, in a Vietnamese court, of child-molestation charges.

It's a double-standard against has-beens, I tell ya: no such ban has ever been put into effect for songs by Michael Jackson, or R. Kelly.

In fairness - neither Kelly nor Jackson has ever been convicted of any sex crime.

And, musically speaking at least, how is Michael Jackson not a has-been?

I don't understand how playing the music associates the NFL with pedophilia. And how did this become the NFL's most pressing concern?
