BEASTIE BOY ADAM YAUCH has accused his native America of censoring all anti-war music - even John Lennon's.

The rapper's band have been continuously critical of the US-led invasion of Iraq last month (MAR03).

Now Yauch believes the American media have united to promote music which supports President George W Bush.

He says, "Most of the media outlets are basically acting like cheerleaders for the whole war and for the Bush administration.

"Shortly after September 11 (01), some of these major corporations stopped playing things like John Lennon songs that just said anything about peace because they just wanted to be very careful not to do anything anti-American."
