I wouldn't have guessed "Do They Know It's Christmas" would make the list. I mean, I always thought the line, "Well, tonight, thank God it's them instead of you" was a little strange, but it's this verse that USA Today doesn't like:
Choice lyric:“And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time / The greatest gift they'll get this year is life / Where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow / Do they know it's Christmas time at all?”
Why it wouldn't fly today:Possibly the most culturally insensitive Christmas song of all time, the Band Aid supergroup may have raised money to alleviate an Ethiopian famine with the proceeds from Do They Know It’s Christmas. But they did it with a song that declares the entire continent of Africa is bereft of water, trees or joy.
Other artists on the list include the Stones, Elton, and even recent songs by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry -- CLICK HERE.
