Jared Leto's New 30 STM Video BANNED!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJared Leto

jared leto and 30 seconds to mars new music video is banned

Well, now EVERYONE'S going to want to see this!

Looks like Jared Leto and 30 Seconds To Mars went too graphic with their new music video for their song Hurricane, and it's been banned!

At the very best, they'll be allowed to show the video at a "Post 10 PM" time slot IF they are willing to edit their video.

Here's what Leto had to say about it:

Here is one letter out of several we received about the inability for networks to broadcast HURRICANE as is.
I am looking to find a creative solution that works for all.

We hope you're able to work it out, Jared! We'd LOVE to see this video!

Innerested in hearing exactly why the video has been banned? Check out the arguably NSFW letter after the jump!

Hi ——,

Here is the feedback from our compliance team,

Please note the final comments can only be given after our compliance team has viewed the digibeta, there were areas which they were unable to view towards the end of the video.

Overall the bondage theme will warrant a POST 10 PM restriction as the film is in its current form.

There is one shot that will have to be removed completely for a POST 10PM restriction -


This shot makes the video completely restricted.

There are other bondage shots towards the end of the film that compliance were unclear about, they would have to view frame by frame on tape to gauge whether they would need to be cut too for POST 10PM.

The violence in the film is not graphic and would warrant a POST 7pm restriction. But the overall sexual content does push the restriction up.

Here’s what was logged so far:

    As much as I like Jared Leto, I get the video ban. I'm not really sure what is the point of the music video other than an excuse to show bondage scenes — I guess I'll have to hear the lyrics to hurricane. It doesn't sound like there is any semblance of a story in this video (how is book-burning connected to man with sledge hammer connected to bondage girls?)

  2. 2

    Jared Leto is one of the most artistic people out there. The whole cd " This is War" is a story, a lesson about life, love, tragedy, it's honestly one of the realest things that I have ever heard in my life. Hurricane has such a powerful message and I am sure that you will see it in this video. I think that it should remain the way that it is, he made it this graphic for a reason, if you truly listen to the words, you will see why. What right do people have to ban his work… It's a free country, if you don't care to see it, then turn away. This is for the ECHELON.

    Whoever wrote this…do you ever read what you wrote? you state you would be "Innerested in hearing exactly why the video has been banned?", then you go on to post the letter from the networks explaining EXACTLY why it was banned (or asked to be toned down). Are you that much of an idiot?

  4. 4

    'Creative resolution?' You mean lets milk the free publicity from this erotic porn video. Shit music, shit video. Makes sense innit.

  5. 5

    oooh….he is so cutting edge and political.

  6. 6

    Sounds like the best freaking video in the world!! lmao Post it on Youtube…

  7. mayi says – reply to this


    The details in the letter is more than enough for me to say that it's inappropriate, whatever the purpose of the video is. Calling something "art" doesn't make it untouchable by regulations and moral.

  8. 8

    regardless if the vid sounds like it has no point, its censorship to ban a video. Who's to say what is acceptable to one person or another. If they are trying to guard children after 10pm restriction is BS, tons of kids stay up after then. Who cares dont like it, change the channel…

  9. 9

    NOO I want to see Jared SHIRTLESSSSSSs

  10. 10

    Kind of odd this is banned considering that Lady Caca and her Alejandro video was more repulsive to middle America. I guess is OK to bash christian icons but is not OK to show bondage, kind of odd reasonings here… ass touching, not appropiate, crucifix upsidown on a woman's crotch is ok… twisted..

  11. ka.06 says – reply to this


    The description of the video sounds more like a porn to me, not an "artistic" video.

  12. 12

    You people have some nerve! who the hell are you to say what some find artistic is not. This world is sooo messed up it's ok for babies to have babies and be on tv the complete sexualization of CHILDREN each and every day wtf do paris hilton grindin on a car have to do with a cheeseburger and that is shown in the mornings before these babies go to school but god help anyone who has something different to say and expresses THEIR vision in THEIR way IF YOU DONT LIKE CHANGE THE GOD DAMN CHANNEL NO ONE IS MAKING YOU!!!!! ALL THE PEOPLE IN THIS VIDEO ARE CONSENTING ADULTS THE FCC AND ALL THESE RIGHT WING FUCK NUTS THAT FEEL EVERY ONE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEIR SEXUALITY ARE AFRAID BECAUSE IT IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE IT SHOWS PEOPLE ENJOYING SOMETHING DARKER MAN SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE SUCH SHEEP IT MAKES ME SICK GROW THE FUCK UP DONT LIKE IT DONT FUCKING LOOK

    Re: sensfan999 – Notice the question mark at the end - he wasn't saying HE was interested in knowing the reasons, he was saying if YOU are interested, read the letter below. And you call him an idiot.

  14. 14

    snooorrreeee zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  15. 15

    Good to see some slutty people making out gets a 10pm rating but it's cool to show someone getting smashed with a sledgehammer at 7pm. Go America!

  16. 16

    Based on the lyrics of this song, I can totally see how all of this would fit in the video. All of you people below saying this isn't art cannot judge for others what art is. I'm not a fan of Dada art (DuChamp's the Fountain is a urinal that the guy wrote on and its worth milions), feces art or many other forms of art, but I don't presume to tell others how to feel about it. If they see something I don't see and enjoy those pieces, good for them. I'm not here to judge.

    30 Seconds to Mars makes great music that tells a story. Its the modern equivalent of The Wall (not the same music or anything, just same idea). Why are whores allowed all over my TV no matter what time of day on shows like Rock of Love Bus, the Hills, Flavor of Love, etc. but an artistic video with a little bondage is banned til after 10 pm. Not to mention, have you seen the video for Alejandro? Why is this OK? Cause Lady Gaga is so popular. Its BS.

    P.S. Lady Gaga should pay Madonna for stealing all of her ideas. That entire video is just scene's from all of Madonna's videos all mushed together and staring Lady Gaga. The only difference being Lady Gaga can't dance like Madonna.

    Re: sensfan999 – Duuuh!! He said: "Innerested in hearing exactly why the video has been banned? Check out the arguably NSFW letter after the jump!" With a '?'. I will enlight you… He meant: "Are you interested in hearing exactly why the video has been banned? …". Who's the idiot?

  18. 18

    Some of it warrants the ban, but a lot of it seems nothing out of the ordinary when compared to what's shown in a lot of (mostly rap) videos.

    Re: Codex Gigas – you really need psychiatric help

  20. 20

    The video is brilliant. I can't wait for the uncensored version to be released. People can kiss Jared Leto's ass if they don't like it - THEN DON'T WATCH IT!!!

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – had it and passed with flying colours so suck it

  22. 22

    I watched the video on youtube (censored) and I wasn't in awe of the "amazement" or turned on…I was just disturbed and confused :S. The song is pretty good and I guess the lyrics are dark and are in relation to the concept of the video to an extent but I guess they didn't have to go hardcore. It could of been done more tastefully I guess. Like glamorous.. or classy. This just comes across as really tacky or a failed attempt at being artistic :S

  23. 23

    why does american censorship think violence is fine but sex isnt?

  24. 24

    Wow!! Might as well just make a new video because they picked on every minute! F*** THEM! Put it up on Youtube!!!!!! or…the 30STM's fan page! There is your solution :)
