This is really one of the most important stories in Poland now. The famous and having a cult-like audience radio 3 is gone with firing of the last Polish music journalist Marek Niedzwiedzki that was an author of the hit list since I was in the highschool.
This song "your pain and my pain" divided Poland, since it refers to Kaczynski being able to visit his brother's grave and his mother, while the rest of Poland couldn'd.
Kazik's Your Pain is Better than Mine is widely seen as criticising the head of Poland's ruling nationalist party.
The host of the Trojka chart show has resigned along with two other DJs.
The station director has claimed the chart was fixed, but MPs from the ruling party as well as the opposition have condemned the song's removal. What's the song about?
The song's theme is grieving and the lockdown of the nation's cemeteries during the coronavirus outbreak.
Kazik Staszewski's song doesn't mention Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of Law and Justice, by name, but his target is pretty clear, says BBC Warsaw correspondent Adam Easton.

Cemeteries closed as a result of the events of recent weeks, recent events. I look at the chains, I wipe away my tear, just like you, just like you. The gate opens, I can't believe my eyes. Perhaps things are different after all. I run over, your heavies shout stop, because your pain is better than mine.
When cemeteries were closed, Mr Kaczynski still visited the Warsaw grave of his mother and the graves of victims of a Russian air disaster in Smolensk in which his twin brother, President Lech Kaczynski, was killed.
By Friday, Kazik's song had topped Poland's renowned chart on Radio Three, highlighting a sense of one law for ordinary Poles and another for the ruling party's leader.
