30 Seconds to MarsJared Leto's latest 30 Seconds To Mars music video has been banned from TV after censors deemed it too explicit to broadcast.

The 20-minute promo for Hurricane, which Leto recently described as "a meditation on the violence of sex and the sex of violence," has caused a stir among TV executives in the U.S.

In a posting on his website on Sunday, the frontman listed a series of broadcasting issues he received from network bosses regarding sexually explicit bondage shots and violent fight scenes. And he revealed he's working on a "creative" editing solution to ensure the video can at least secure a "Post 10 PM" time slot.

Leto continues: "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."
However, guitarist Tomo Milicevic has vowed to make the clip available for fans to see online in its original, full-length format.

He tells, "The internet is still restriction-free - the Hurricane film will be seen."
