No - but Spike Jones had a relases of  a take on By the Sea that had to 
be pulled back, since the guys sang a parady line and it went by the 
booth and they pressed nearly 500 before someone caught it. I know what 
the riske' line was but my E lips are  sealed.
Of  course there is the Carmichael record of Barnicle Bill when Venuti 
added a naughty word, but because the record quality was so low at that 
time that it didn't get caught until years later they came up with hi-fi 
These things happen more than we know but are usually caught -- but not 
always, so poor Granny Ringwald got her ears scorched!
