Sugar Walls comes to mind. But as far as I know beyond that she was pretty tame.

There is still censorship in music.

Look what YouTube did to Johnny Rebel

That was not government censorship.

It's only government disallows it via fines, etc.

Satanism. I shite you not. The PMRC and church groups were all over classic hard rock and heavy metal groups asses all during the 1980's.

Back then, I was a dedicated metal head and wasn't initially inclined to enjoy rap or hip-hop. But, when I found out the people giving NWA bull shite were same people hassling Slayer, I realized that I was missing out on some other great art.

So in a very direct way, those bans and restrictions made me more open minded about listening to gangster rap. If they would've tried to ban country and bluegrass, I'd likely be a fan of that, too!

I knew they tried to censor Madonna and Black Sabbath... And out of the rest of them.. Prince, Sheena Easton and Def Leppard?

How were they controversial?




The PMRC singled out 15 popular songs at the time that they believed were the worst of the worst and should be the basis of parental ratings for albums. Prince made the list for Darling Nikki. Sheena Easton for Sugar Walls, and Def Leppard for High 'n Dry.

Tipper and company wanted ratings for any blatant references to sex, the occult, violence, and drugs.

Democrats sure have come a long way. From censoring hip hop to making hip hop themes like hating police their platform.

No because there was no such thing as Hip Hop back then. It was called Rap

In fact, at the time, Tipper mentioned this song specifically as the catalyst for starting the PMRC. She talked of how she was riding in the car one day with her 11 year old daughter listening to the Purple Rain album when this song started playing. She said it was so shocking to her that she decided then and there to do something about it.

I’ve always loved Megadeth’s song railing against the PMRC.

Hook in Mouth

So relevant today.

That’s not true. Cite an instance of You Are My Sunshine being censored.

Yep, remember it vividly. Every time I heard about a particular album being targeted, I went out and got it. Never was a big Ozzy fan but I had two of his albums because of the push to Censor him. My mom busted me with a two live crew album(don’t remember the name of it but it had two or three nearly naked women on the cover). She read the song list off the album and nearly went nuclear.
