30 Seconds To Mars' new video banned from television

The video that accompanies 30 Seconds To Mars’ new single, ‘Hurricane’, has been banned from television.

The 20-minute cinematic endeavor has been labelled too explicit by censors and front man Jared Leto took to his personal blog to explain the case:

“Here is one letter out of several we received about the inability for networks to broadcast HURRICANE as is.
 I am looking to find a creative solution that works for all.”

Leto proceeded to publish correspondence explaining why the video was inappropriate, and reasons covered included:

“The violence in the film is not graphic and would warrant a POST 7pm 
restriction.  But the overall sexual content does push the restriction 

'Hurricane' is set for a January 10 release and an the uncut version of the video is reported to be made available online later this week.
