CDs had been having warning stickers for some time, but I think the first one to have the official "Parental Advisory" sticker on it may have been Ritual de lo Habitual by Jane's Addiction (could be wrong though).

Vanilla Ice didn't have one, well at least it doesn't now hehe cuz I see hundreds of them in the Bargain bin hehe.

I'm guessing something by NWA or Ice T. I remember seeing stickers on an NWA cd before they had finalized the whola PA thing.

BTW, that movie last night kicked ass. Dee Snider is a pretty funny guy, and I loved how they edited the bad words from the politicians but not when "the good guys" said it.

Took this off some site promoting a book called Parental Advisory
It's part of a time line:

The PMRC writes to music industry presidents and CEOs and requests a rating system for music lyrics and imagery. The letter contains a list of the "filthy fifteen" (the artists initially targeted by the PMRC), those artists are AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Cyndi Lauper, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Madonna, Mary Jane Girls, Mercyful Fate, Motley Cre, Prince, Sheena Easton, Twisted Sister, Vanity, Venom, and W.A.S.P.



According to this, Prince's Purple Rain was the album that got Tipper all up in arms.

Pretty good movie. Sort of surprised to hear the "language" on commercial television.

And Mariel Hemingway as Tipper Gore is some of the most inspired casting I've seen in ages.

And the guy who played Dee Snider nailed his part, too.

The official RIAA "Parental Advisory" black and white label was released in March of 1989, but I can't find the first album to wear the logo.

It was either NWA or Jello Biafra, but I can't recall which.

Are you sure? "I wax a chump like a candle" is pretty edgy...

It probably wasn't Jello Biafra. He's always been opposed to stickers and he publishes his own records through his own Alternative Tentacles record label.

Good question...

I have no idea but I'll take a guess... How about 2 Live Crew. Along those same lines, NWA is a pretty good guess as well.

That parental advisory site mentioned above is great. They have a good timeline with a lot of interesting facts. Anyway, ya, in the movie she was all upset over Purple Rain. She bought it because it won a grammy and figured it was good or something. I love how some people think.

2 Live Crew was definitely one of the first to get it.

Yea, I'm pretty sure 'As Nasty as They Wanna Be' was the first.

If the "black and White " logo of the PA logo came out in 1989, then why does Apitie for Distruction by G&R have one. Last night, VH1 said that the first album to get one was by Ice T. (no it was not the cop killer cd)

The logo was added after the fact to some records (G'N'R, 2 Live Crew, NWA, etc.). The Ice-T album would probably be The Iceberg: Freedom of Speech Just Watch What You Say. That came out in 1989 and the title of the record and the front cover (a guy with guns being pointed in his ears and in his mouth) would suggest that.
