    So this means I don't have to hear a bad rendition of Thunder Road or Born in the USA? So what's the downside?

    I think I've watched almost every episode of AI and AI2 and don't ever remember hearing a Bruce song.

    It sounds so childish that they're "banning" those songs, but they DO have a point.....

    I think it would be cool if they had some staff songwriters come up with original songs that the contestants could pick from and learn ( no other songs besides these would be allowed ). All contestants would recieve the songs at the same time so the learning time would be fair.

    About 20 or 30 songs, so we could hear different takes on the same tunes and get familiar with them.

    This would prove the contestant's ability to deal with and learn new material , which is a skill that singing stars need to have anyway.

    Then the royalties would be easy and the songwriters would also have a chance to maybe get famous.

    I hope not too! I'm sick of hearing her songs and also Celine Dion songs.

    I think between Clay and Ryan (CI), the geek has been done. Anyone else trying for that will just look like an imitator. We'll be as tired of that gambit as we are of these banned songs. You would think with the contracts going to BMG/J/RCA, there would be some pull with them for songs to be used. Already getting antsy for AI3 to begin.

    I get tired of them doing covers of anyone. It's too easy to copy the style. I'd rather see (with what little of the show I watch) some original style.

    If I hear that effin' God Bless The USA song again on this show...I'm going to have to murder someone...I can't help it...

    I have no problems with tossing Fallin'... I really don't like that song to begin with..doesn't help when it gets massacred time after time.

    I don't know why these people aren't smart enough to sing something unique...there's a big big music world out there...
