Bodies Turn Cold

Nate Dogg is dead! "Regulate" was possibly the best hip hop song of the 90s. It was Warren G's song, but Nate did half the vocals. Here's the unclean version of the song. "Adults," you'll recognize the sample from your old Michael McDonald records. This is one of those songs that I feel like I reference at least once a week. (I'd link to the actual video but they cut out words. What's wrong with "high"? I still don't get why that song and Light My Fire have "high/higher" taken out on the radio, but G 'n' R's "when you're high you never ever wanna come down" was never cut.)

It's doubly sad, because back in the G-Funk era, we used to hang around with this guy Nate, who of course was called Nate Dogg, too. A couple years ago, that Nate died, and now the actual Nate Dogg is gone.

Nate Dogg died at 41, Nate you were the men, RIP.
When the Doors made their opening and only appearance on the Ed Sullivan show in late 1967, good old Ed forbade them to sing/say the word "higher." They did and were banned. But that was 40 plus years ago. I have no idea why it's bleeped now.
