Were These Songs Really Banned From Radio Airplay After 9/11?

It appears it's become something of an urban myth that certain songs were banned outright by some radio stations after the unthinkable events of Sept. 11, 2001. It's apparently not true, although some were encouraged to think twice before letting these get on air.
