No potty-mouth lyrics for iTunes Match

A glitch is causing iTunes Match to scrub explicit lyrics from some rap songs. Apple is working to fix the issue.

I've got 99 problems but a glitch ain't one.

Right now, that's more than Apple can say. The company is trying to fix a glitch that has resulted in iTunes Match filtering out explicit lyrics from what appears to be a small number of rap songs, according to the blog Cult of Mac.

Instead of hearing Kanye West's "Power" or Jay-Z's "Can I Live" the way they were originally recorded, the iTunes Match streaming service will only deliver profanity-free sanitized versions.

While parents might appreciate this kind of malfunction, there are plenty of us who don't mind the raw lyrics, as Cult of Mac points out.

iTunes Match, launched last year, is the $25 annual service that will scan customers' hard drives and match tracks in their iTunes music library, whether they were purchased from Apple or not.
