The repressing policies China have once again cramped The Rolling Stones style-this time the band has done the inevitable. Reports say that the band has already cut their song list to suit the countries authorities wishes. Earlier they have been disallowed from performing Honky Tonk Women, Brown Sugar, Beast of Burden and Lets Spend The Night Together. They have disallowed the band from performing their songs the way they'd rather the reason for which is thought to be the songs explicit lyricism. They came down on the band with these restrictions when the band came to the nation on a world tour on '03. The band has anticipated these restrictions and might exclude these songs from the song list for concerts in the country planned to kick off on the eighth of the next month. One such other restriction that the band was placed under in their early days was when they played a gig for The Tonight Show. Instead of "Let's spend the night together", they sang "Let's spend some time together". The mesage that It's Only Rock'n Roll doesnt seem to be getting through to censors.
