Howard Stern returns from his two-week summer vacation tomorrow, and before he left there was a running bit where they'd discover classic tunes that secretly had the n-word in it. Two AC/DC songs and a Billy Joel track had what appeared to be the derogatory term in the lyrics.

LA's very own X, perhaps the greatest band ever from Los Angeles, wrote one of the best songs about our city and unlike the pieces that Howard has discovered, X don't pretend that they're singing something else.

Lyrics after the jump.
