    The site seems to have some difficulty distinguishing between Patti Smith and Patti Smith Group, and often gets them confused. Maybe that's why; it's under the other artist name.

    Er, how does this work? It says "Penny Traition's Loved Tracks"...So I put it on; it says "You've listened to Patti Smith 14 times before, but not 'Rock n Roll Nigger''". So how is it one of my "Loved Tracks"? Just a question; I'm a wee bit over the legal limit so please bear with me...

    This might be one of my all-time favorite songs. Offensive to the exact people that it was designed to offend. One of the greatest rebellion songs ever written. http://thenoisepaper.blogspot.com/2013/01/throwback-track-of-day-patti-smith-rock.html

    I met her in 1979. Sat right next to her. Her breath smelled like metal from the mic. Best show ever and she is a HUGE contribution to this planet.

    I'm black, and I fucking love this song. Listen carefully, and you'll see it's obviously not racist. It's a word. Get over it. Patti is a goddess.

    By definition, freedom of speech means that there will always be somebody, somewhere, offended by whatever is said , written or sung. So just move on.........
