Let’s be clear: there are a lot of F-bombs in popular music. But not so many that they become meaningless. Just so there’s no confusion, an F-bomb is a use of the word “fuck”. I’m not a subject matter expert by any means, but I do love a good F-bomb. Here are my five favorites (that I’ve encountered thus far).
There is also an honorable mention, a song that came so close to making the list that I felt it should be included for reference purposes. It’s not in the top five, but it’s sooo close, and it’s a classic.
Incidentally, I’ve listened through all these clips to make sure that the F-bombs aren’t censored. In some cases, I had to hunt around a bit to find an unsullied presentation.
