Why on some radio stations some songs can say a bad word but other songs bleep them out?

I don’t understand like some songs will say piss, damn, hell, ***, among a few others but other songs will silence or replace it. Like let’s take a country song. Boys Round Here so the song says **** but the radio edit has lip. Though you have redneck woman that says hell, redneck crazy that says pissed, going through hell that obviously says hell its in the title, same with hell yea, and many more however others either can’t play on radio or have to be bleeped out. I heard sometimes they do a “trick” where they say something similar to the word and you really can not tell just by listing but they say something very similar to the word. I don’t know how true that is though people sometimes just say things.

    They edited Money for Nothing by Dire Straits too. The part about Boy George was cut.
