Since then, Quest and crew have admitted that the song choice was a mistake and that they regretted playing the song. Now Pitchfork reports that NBC is upping the ante. After having to apologize to all the people they pissed off, including Bachman's camp, the television network will now pre-screen every single song the Roots will play on 'Late Night.'
Questlove, born Amir Thompson, told Rolling Stone in an upcoming profile that NBC has put the clamp down on what can and can't be played as "walk-on" music. Each song will now be pre-screened by three executives and the drummer is forever banned from tweeting about the incident again.
Fallon recently took to Brian Williams' new talk show, 'Rock Center,' to discuss the scandal and admitted Questlove "felt really bad," and that he wanted to put the whole incident behind them. Do you think the show will suffer now that the Roots have been censored?
