Do I have to stop liking the Flowers in Your Hair song?

Vulture has it right.

Have you had problems listening to R. Kelly ever since learning that he (allegedly) engaged in water sports with underage girls? Have you been forced to hit the fast-forward button on your Discman every time "Rock &Roll, Part 2" comes up while you're listening to Jock Jams, because of Gary Glitter's pedophiliac tendencies? Well, then, if you're a fan of the Mamas & the Papas (and who isn't?), we suggest you find something to do this afternoon that doesn't involve watching Oprah.

In case you missed it, John Phillips slept with his daughter MacKenzie on numerous occasions, including the night before her wedding! Clearly, you can't listen to songs by this evil bastard now, but what about songs he wrote, but didn't sing like San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers In Your Hair?) I vote a cautious no.
