‘Illegal Alien’ by Genesis – Classic Hit or Miss

"Illegal Alien" is a song by English rock group by Genesis. It was released as the fourth single from the album Genesis. The song reached number 41 on the charts. The song's lyrics are a lighter, humorous depiction of the frustration an illegal immigrant faces, leading up to the chorus: "It's no fun/Being an illegal alien". The song is rarely played on United States radio stations because of its perceived offensiveness toward illegal immigrants. In particular, the second stanza of the bridge — in which the trespasser offers sexual favours from his sister in exchange for admittance across the border — has been edited from radio versions of the song, as well as from the music video version.
