Censorship of Music, the practice of censoring music from the public, may take the form of partial or total censorship with the latter banning the music entirely. The music in question may be a song, or part thereof, a collection of songs (such as a particular album) or a genre of music.

Both songs and albums have been banned in the past. It has become less common in western countries. However, the censorship of particular words deemed as profanity is still commonplace.
