    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    In 1973, US Representative Harley Orrin Staggers heard the song — which includes the lines “’Til you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules” and “But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see” — on WGTB and lodged a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The manager of the station, Ken Sleeman, faced a year in prison and a $10,000 fine, but defended his decision to play the song saying, “The People of Washington, DC are sophisticated enough to accept the occasional four-letter word in context, and not become sexually aroused, offended, or upset.” The charges were dropped. Other US radio stations, like Boston’s WBCN, banned the song for its use of the word “fucking”. In Australia, the album was released with the expletive removed from the song and the lyrics censored on the inner sleeve.
