    The Parents Music Resource Center's 'Filthy Fifteen'
    [​IMG]
    To make the Parents Music Resource’s infamous “Filthy Fifteen,” a song had to have focused on sex, violence or drugs – at least according to those long-ago guardians of public morals.

    The PMRC, co-founded by future Vice President Al Gore’s wife Tipper, published the list in 1985, recommending that each of these songs be banned because they were the most egregious. Most of them, it’s no surprise, were rock songs – specifically, hard rock or metal songs. So, AC/DC, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, Twisted Sister, Black Sabbath and W.A.S.P. are all duly represented in the above list. Click through for the complete run-down on which tracks were targeted.

    By the way, the PMRC also pushed for a ratings system, similar to the one in place for movies, and were successful in getting warning labels affixed to the front of singles and albums that record companies agreed were explicit.

    It all came to a head during an explosive congressional hearing on Sept. 19, 1985, in which Frank Zappa, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister and John Denver testified before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee on the matter. Covers of albums by Def Leppard and W.A.S.P. were alsomentioned, as was Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” (a member of the “Filthy Fifteen”) and Van Halen‘s “Hot for Teacher.”

    Fast forward a few decades, and the parental advisory sticker has become a relic. There were those who felt from the beginning that it encouraged sales among rebellious youth. The advent of downloading and streaming services led to the warning sticker’s complete obsolescence.

    so retarded and al gore never caught the 1000 tons of political shit he should have for letting tipper run wild like that. I guess being a democrat insulated him - imagine if a republicans wife had pulled that stunt

    Back then the press as worried about ritual satanic abuse at day care centers, kids playing dungeons and dragons, ouija boards. It was a weird time.

    A little of The Dark Lord does a soul good.

    Saw Sabbath for the first (and only, actually) time on the Born Again tour! I'd love to see that show again.

    This is when I learned politicians will wheel out "teen suicide" to appeal to every mother's nature and willingness to forfeit the constitution in the name of protecting her kids.

    Steroids in baseball?

    Wheel out the kid who killed himself because of steroids.


    Where did the kids get the idea that 'roids make you better? From the press and congress. Big Mac sure as hell wasn't telling them that.
