The Mp3Lyrics transition

KrakenLyrics used to be mp3lyrics.org before it became mp3lyrics.com before it became KrakenLyrics.com

During a comprehensive job of switching the codebase, redisigning and re-inventing the behavior of mp3lyrics we also renamed it to KrakenLyrics. The main reason for this was that the mp3 part of mp3lyrics was confusion people. This site is only about the lyrics to songs, not about the sound.

Lyrics profanity

Some lyrics contain profane language. Some lyrics contain very profane language. And some lyrics contain extreme profanity. This is just the nature of some of the songs in the world. KrakenLyrics doesn't have an opinion about the content or interpretation of the meaning of the lyrics on the site.

In cases of certain types of lyrics profanity (and other) complaints, we can require the lyrics in question to be flagged as hidden from the public. This means that they will not be displayed on the open and free site. And they will not be indexed by search engines. The flagged lyrics will still exist, and they can even exist on KrakenLyrics. But can only be viewed by logged in users of the site.
