Actually, they've been letting songs get by with the word "shit" or "fuck"
for a while now, if they don't really stand out. ZZ Top's "Legs" is one
example, and I think there's a Skynyrd song that does the same thing.

And I do remember the word "ass" slipping into common usage on tv during the
90's. It started with jackass (the insult, not the show), only now
variations such as asswipe are allowed. I think asshole is still considered
too obscene.

NYPD Blue also had boobs on tv, didn't they?4
