a song calling for the political rehabilitation of late ousted premier Zhao Ziyang, whose name has been virtually removed from the public record since the pro-democracy movement of 1989.

The lyrics to the song, titled "Zhao Ziyang, Overwhelmingly Righteous," were soon subjected to revision by China's Internet censors, however, with the word "rehabilitation" changed in some postings.
