What happened to that guy? He became such a diva. Which is a shame cause he's clearly fairly intelligent. Anyways obviously I have no problem with cursing in LP. They curse little enough that when they do use it, it means something. It carries weight. We're not talking like Slipknot who used fuck 42(roughly) times on one album. The first time I heard Given Up it was given so much power by the use of expletives. Especially since they had been clean up to that point. Blackout, tell me that line before the second chorus is anywhere near as powerful as it was without "Fuck it!" It just adds oomph. I would agree if they overdid it but they use it sparingly.
