Journalist Turned Rapper Tells TSA 'Don't Touch My Junk'

Michael Adams' Don't Touch My JunkFollowing the release of songs like, "Just Say No to GMO" and "I Want My Bailout Money," rap artist Michael Adams has set his sights on airport security in his new song, "Don't Touch My Junk." Available for free download at, for which he is editor, the song is based on real dialogue from traveler John Tyner who secretly recorded his conversation with TSA officials, during which he tells them,  "Don't touch my junk, or I'll have you arrested."

Known as the "Health Ranger," Adams, a journalist-turned-rapper, worked those words into a rap song that comically addresses the issue, while conveying his message.

"This song is about reminding people to invoke their Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches. Airports are not Constitution-free zones," Adams said.

Radio host Alex Jones is featured in his song, alongside the Fourth Amendment and the U.S. Bill of Rights. It features lines regarding "man junk" and TSA molestation, as well as borrowing phrases from mainstream pop songs, including Black Eyed Peas' "My Humps" and MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This."

In his songs, Adams works toward depicting popular sentiments about socially important causes like civil rights, the psychiatric drugging of children and the safety of the national food supply. They are available as MP3 downloads, for which Adams earns no income or royalties.
