Making shorter radio versions of songs to reduce the runtime of a song is a common thing. Here are a few examples for this technique:

"November Rain" by Guns N' Roses
After the calm vocal part the song ends. The complete ending (which is accompanied by Slash on the electric guitar and Axel Rose on the piano) is almost always missing when the song is aired on the radio. The choir sings:
Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one


"Faint" by Linkin Park
Mostly, the radio version does without Chester's growling towards the end of the song. He screams:
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me like it or not
Right now, hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me like it or not
Right now


"Never Be The Same Again" by Melanie C.
Mostly, the radio versions miss out on Lisa "Lefteye" Lopez' rap part.

The same thing also happens for music videos, either to reduce the songs runtime or to make it a little more appealing for a mainstream audience.
Slipknot did a similar thing for the song "My Plague" which was released as a single. For the music video, the band used the so-called "New Abuse Mix" which not only is a little softer in terms of the vocals (there are less growls and swear words) but is also shorter than the original album version because it misses out on 1 verse.
A similar thing happened for "Psychosocial". Two passages of the original version of the song had to be cut out for the TV version. In the background you hear a guitar riff while Corey screams "The Limits of the Dead" several times. The special thing about "Psychosocial" is that unlike "My Plague" there also exist 2 versions of the music video - one WITH the part just mentioned and a shorter one WITHOUT it.
