Name it. By whom?
What's the word that's been blanked out? What was it originally supposed to be? Why was it changed?



ANSWER:

Give Peace a Chance by John Lennon




The word was originally masturbation but was changed to mastication because Lennon didn't want any controversy arising due to the word.

Okay, first of all. knowing that the blank is Masturbation, the title sounds dirty. Anyways, John Lennon changed it to Mastication (chewing) in the song Give Peace a Chance to avoid controversy...
