To finally clarify this, the song "Kodachrome" by Paul Simon, a major 
hit in summer 1973, began with the line: "When I think back on all the 
crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I could think at all...".

The word "crap" was censored on WBZ (and maybe elsewhere, but I don't 
recall it being censored anywhere else here in Boston).

I was in high school at the time, I remember hearing the beginning and 
thinking, "Cool, a high school put-down song!" 

But the rest of the song after the first line is lyrically quite benign.
