LATEST: Veteran rockers THE ROLLING STONES agreed to the censorship of sexually suggestive lyrics during their three-song set at the Super Bowl half-time show on Sunday night (05FEB06).

The band consented before the show - which aired to almost 1 billion television viewers around the globe - that editors at the National Football League (NFL) could turn down SIR MICK JAGGER's microphone for risqué lines in hits START ME UP and ROUGH JUSTICE.

It was previously reported that the group had been censored in an ABC five-second tape delay, over network fears a repeat of JANET JACKSON's infamous wardrobe malfunction at the American football event two years ago would mar proceedings.

An NFL spokesman confirmed, "We agreed upon it earlier this week. The band were fine with it.

"If we had missed it, then ABC had five seconds to hit the button."
