The rule is "English-only, please, or provide a translation." A pretty simple rule to follow, I think.

let me ask you this: How is the moderator supposed to KNOW it is a song title? Even if they did know, how are they supposed to know the song title doesn't have offensive laguage in it?

You'll notice one of the English song titles - **** you (I dont want you back) - was also censored.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
