9 Rock Songs Almost Ruined By Their Original Lyrics

#7. ‘Radio Ga Ga’ was originally ‘Radio Caca’

'Radio Ga Ga' was originally 'Radio Caca'

Queen drummer Roger Taylor was disenchanted with radio, but not nearly so much as his toddler son Felix was. Allegedly, Felix exclaimed “radio CACA!” one day while listening to a particularly bad bit of programming, inspiring his dad to write a damning song about it. Preferring not to get on the bad side of every commercial radio station in the world, the rest of the band helped rewrite the title and chorus to “Radio Ga Ga,” turning a condemning song into a praising one. One person who should be especially thankful for this edit: Lady Gaga, who says she took her stage name from the song, and might have had a very different life if Felix got his way. Source
