What does "malmencieblaĵo" mean?

I was reading the lyrics of the song "Ĉu vi kontentas?" by La Perdita Generacio when I read this sentence: "Ĉu vi daŭre deziras malmencieblaĵojn?". What does malmencieblaĵo mean?

I've been searching a lot and I found these informations:

But I don't know if they're correct or how to mix all those ideas to form a bigger one (I think it can be something similar to words/phrases that let someone upset, but I don't know if it makes sense in the context of the song)

Thanks in advance xD

[Sorry about my English, feel free to correct me :D]

Laŭ mia opinio „mencii“ ne havas malon. Mi dirus “nemencieblaĵo”. Tio estas aĵo, kiun oni ne povas mencii. Estas ofte bone, ne formi tro longajn vortojn.

Vi certe pravas pri "ne" kontraŭ "mal"... sed temas pri ne-ado de "ebl" ne de "menci".

Unmentionables... but now the question is what that means. To me it's underwear, but maybe the context will make it clear.

Reading the lyrics, I don't think it's underwear. "Things which are not able to be mentioned."

Maybe like in Harry Potter: "he who must not be named"?
