Profanities in songs don't bother me too much if they're included for effect, but when they're included just for the sake of swearing then it makes me lose quite a bit of respect for the song. It's not that the words are offensive or anything, more just that it gives the feeling that the artist was too lazy to think of a more appropriate word to use instead. If the profanity is being used as a method of emphasising a message or tone in the song or two big up a lyric or two then that's perfectly okay so I'd rather they swore than not, but otherwise I think songs are generally better without resorting to profanities; to me it just seems somewhat lazy and slightly disrespectful to the listener if they're including explicit words for the sake of having explicit words in the song or due to not wanting to think of a more appropriate synonym.
