Yeah, I guess their song (and debut single) "In League with Satan" was too on the nose.

And then they went out of their way to promote stuff like The Mentors who was just obscure as fuck until they read the lyrics to "Golden Showers" into the congressional record and made them more famous and infamous than they ever would have been on their own.
They were one band I was thinking of when I said there were worse songs in the mid 80s. And I love how "Golden Showers" ended up in the congressional record. RIP El Duce, you crazy bastard (was Courtney Love really responsible for his death? ). BTW, a Mentors biopic could be fucking gold.

It's pretty much agreed that the most egregious labeling of an album was Frank Zappa's Jazz From Hell getting slapped with a sticker for explicit lyrics.
Spoiler:
It's an all-instrumental album

Agreed, although I think the music that came out of the band, quite inadvertently and no doubt much to Malcolm's chagrin, was excellent and influential. But yeah, making music was never the original intent of the band. It just ended up being a happy accident, mostly courtesy of Steve, Paul, and Glen.

I suppose it's because one of the tracks was called "G-Spot Tornado."

Still, leave it Zappa to release an instrumental album that gets labeled for having explicit lyrics.

Re: What's your Unpopular Music Opinion?

I listened to the Filthy Fifteen while playing my Arcade machine (get a good 80's feeling) and drinking a couple of beers yesterday and it dawned on me that some of these are some really weird picks.

My House by Mary Jane Girls. What?
Dress You Up by Madonna. Um...ok.
We're Not Gonna Take It and High 'n' Dry??? Really?

I mean, a few of the other titles I can slightly understand just because they were (are) fucking prudes. But a few of these are non-sensical.

It's just strange what people find offensive or want to lose their minds over sometimes.

I wonder how many times Tipper masturbated to "Sugar Walls" so she could completely know and understand all the lyrics so she could condemn it?

The FILTHY FIFTEEN... spoilered for length...

Spoiler:

JUDAS PRIEST - EAT ME ALIVE

Wrapped tight around me
Like a second flesh of skin cling my body
As the ecstasy begins
Your wild vibrations
Got me shooting from the hip
Crazed and insatiable let rip
Eat me alive
Sounds like an animal panting to the beat
Groan in the pleasure zone gasping from the heat
Gut-wrenching frenzy that deranges every joint
I'm gonna force you at gun point
To eat me alive
Bound to deliver as you give and I collect
Squealing in passion as the rod steel injects
Lunge to the maximum
Spread-eagled to the wall
You're well equipped to take it all
So eat me alive

MOTLEY CRUE - BASTARD

Out go the lights
In goes my knife
Pull out his life
Consider that bastard dead
Get on your knees
Please beg me, please
You're the king of the sleaze
Don't you try to rape me

Bastard
Consider that bastard dead
Bastard
Won't get screwed again
Whoa! Whoa!
Bastard
Make it quick, blow off his head Got your neck in the noose
I got nothing to loose
We're really gonna screw you
Consider that bastard dead
Quick as a shark
Beast has its mark
You can't beat the dark
Don't you try to rape me


PRINCE - DARLING NIKKI

I knew a girl named Nikki
I guess you could say she was a sex fiend
I met her in a hotel lobby
Masturbating with a magazine
She said how'd you like to waste some time
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind

She took me to her castle
And I just couldn't believe my eyes
She had so many devices
Everything that money could buy
She said sign your name on the dotted line
The lights went out
And Nikki started to grind

Nikki

The castle started spinning
Or maybe it was my brain
I can't tell you what she did to me
But my body will never be the same
Her lovin' will kick your behind
Oh, she'll show you no mercy
But she'll sho'nuff sho'nuff show you how to grind

Darlin' Nikki

Woke up the next morning
Nikki wasn't there
I looked all over and all I found
Was a phone number on the stairs
It said thank you for a funky time
Call me up whenever you want to grind

Oh, Nikki, ohhhh

Come back Nikki, come back
Your dirty little Prince
Wanna grind grind grind grind grind grind grind grind grind


SHEENA EASTON -SUGAR WALLS

My sugar walls
My sugar walls
Where I came from there's a place called heaven
That's the place where all the good children go
The houses are of silver, the streets are gold
But there's more where you come from, my sugar walls
Blood races to your private spots
Lets me know there's a fire
You can't fight passion when passion is hot
Temperatures rise inside my sugar walls
Let me take you somewhere you've never been
I can show you things you've never seen
I can make you never want to fall in love again
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls
Take advantage, it's alright
I feel so alive when I'm with you
Come and feel my presence, it's raining tonight
Heaven on earth inside my sugar walls
Let me take you somewhere you've never been
I can show you things you've never seen
I can make you never want to fall in love again
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls
I can tell you want me, (my sugar walls) it's impossible to hide
Your body's on fire, admit it, come inside (my sugar walls)
Ah (my sugar walls) oh
Come inside (my sugar walls), my sugar walls (my sugar walls)
Come spend the night inside my sugar walls (my sugar walls)


WASP - ANIMAL (FUCK LIKE A BEAST)

I got pictures of naked ladies
Lying on their beds
I whiff that smell and sweet convulsion
Starts a-Swelling inside my head
I'm making artificial lovers for free
I start to howl I'm in heat
I moan and growl and the hunt drives me crazy
I f*** like a Beast

I come round, round i come feel your love
Tie you down, down i come steal your love
I come round, round i come feel your love
Tie you down, down i come steal your love

I'm on the prowl and i watch you closely
I lie waiting for you
I'm the wolf with the sheepskins clothing
I lick my chops and your tasting good
I do whatever i want to, to ya
I'll nail your ass to the sheets
A pelvic thrust and the sweat starts to sting ya
I f*** like a beast

I come round, round i come feel your love
Tie you down, down i come steal your love
I come round, round i come feel your love
Tie you down, down i come steal your love

Come ride, savage seduction
Ride, ride, ride

MERCYFUL FATE - INTO THE COVEN

Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our High Priestess

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

Undress until you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross and go to the middle of the ring

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

Suck the blood from this unholy knife
Say after me: my soul belongs to Satan

Now, now you're into my Coven
You are Lucifer's Child
Into the Coven
Lucifer's Child

VANITY - STRAP ON ROBBY BABY

You want some candy, little boy?

In the pages of a Blueboy magazine
Hey, hey, I've been thinking of a new sensation
I'm picking up good vibrations

AC/DC - LET ME PUT MY LOVE INTO YOU

Flying on a free flight
Driving all night with my machinery
'Cause I, I got the power, any hour
To show the man in me

And those reputations, blown to pieces
With my artillery
I'll be guiding, we'll be riding
Give a-what you got to me

Don't you struggle
Don't you fight
Don't you worry
'Cause it's your turn tonight

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife, oh

Oh, like a fever, burnin' faster
You spark the fire in me
Crazy feelings got me reeling
They got me raisin' steam

Now, don't you struggle
Don't you fight
Don't you worry
'Cause it's your turn tonight, yeah

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife, oh
Cut it

Let me
Let me
Ow

Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me cut your cake with my knife

Oh, let me put my love into you, babe
Let me put my love on the line
Let me put my love into you, babe
Let me give it all
Let me give it all to you
To you

BLACK SABBATH - TRASHED

It really was a meeting
The bottle took a beating
The ladies of the manor
Watched me climb into my car and
I was going down the track about a hundred and five
They had the stop-watch rolling
I had the headlights blazing I was really alive
And yet my mind was blowing
I drank a bottle of tequila and I felt real good
I had the tape deck roaring
But on the twenty-fifth lap at the canal turn
I went off exploring
I knew I wouldn't make it the car just couldn't take it
I was turning tires burning
The ground was in my sky
I was laughing the bitch was trashed
And death was in my eye

I had started pretty good and I was feeling my way
I had the wheels in motion
There was Peter and the Green fly laughing like drains
Inebriation
The crowd was roaring I was at Brands Hatch
In my imagination
But at the canal turn I hit an oily patch
Inebriation

I knew I wouldn't make it the car just couldn't take it
I was turning tires burning
The ground was in my sky
I was laughing the bitch was trashed
And death was in my eye

Ooh Mr. Miracle you saved me from some pain
I thank you Mr. Miracle I won't get trashed again
Ooh can you hear my lies
Don't you bother with this fool just laugh into my eyes

I was turning tires burning
The ground was in my sky
I was laughing the bitch was trashed
And death was in my eye

Ooh Mr. Miracle you saved me from some pain
I thank you Mr. Miracle I won't get trashed again
Ooh can you hear my lies
Don't you bother with this fool just laugh into my eyes

I went back to the bar and hit the bottle again
But there was no tequila
Then we started on the whisky just to steady our brains
'Cos there was no tequila
And as we drank a little faster at the top of our hill
We began to roll
And as we get trashed we were laughing still
Well bless my soul

MARY JANE GIRLS - IN MY HOUSE

Well you can just believe
I'm the only girl in your life
I'll be your sugar in the morning
And the sweet stuff you need at night
And you can just make believe
When it comes down to makin' love
I'll satisfy your every need
And every fantasy you think up

So when you need a little peace of mind
Come on over boy, anytime
I'll keep you happy and so satisfied
In my house, in my house

So when you need some lovin' tenderness
And it's me baby that you miss
Here's the key to unlock the door
To my house (to my house)
Wo-oo-oo-oo-in my house
Wo-oo-oo-oo-in my house

Well anytime of the day or night
When you call me I'll be there
Just call me up on the phone
When you need someone around to care
And when you feel sad and blue
You just come and see me anytime
I'll be waitin' for you dear
And your fears you can leave behind
So when you need a little peace of mind
Come on over boy, anytime
I'll keep you happy and so satisfied
In my house, in my house
So when you need some love and tenderness
And it's me baby that you miss
Here's the key to unlock the door to my house (to my house)
In my house
In my house
In my house



VENOM - POSSESSED

Look at my eyes and you will see
Fire is burning inside of me
Fire it burns
Fire it burns
Look at the children
Look at my eyes

Look at me Satan's child
Born of evil thus defiled
Brought to life through Satanic birth
Raised in Hell to live on Earth

Come look at me and I'll show you
Things that will open your eyes
Come listen to me and I'll tell you
Things that will sicken your mind

We drink the vomit of the priests
Make love with the dying whore
We suck the blood of the beast
And hold the key to deaths door

Through many a tormented night prevail
Thy excorsions can but fail
Though crucifix doth burn my flesh
I shall not yield to you unless I die!

I am possessed by all that is evil
The death of your God I demand!
I spit at the virgin you worship
And sit at my lord Satan's left hand

I care not for the priests who are crying
I answer to Baphomet's call
A cry for help from the dying
Means nothing to me at all

I am decreed by lord Satan's fine evil
To destroy what all mortals love most
Satan is my master incarnate
Hail praise to my unholy host

Look at my eyes!



Some of these are kind of funny when you think about it... "We're Not Gonna Take It" is completely innocuous, and "Trashed" by Black Sabbath is an anti-drunk driving song. And "In My House" doesn't seem much different than mainstream stuff from the 60s and 70s that you'd hear from bands like Fleetwood Mac or The Eagles.

Re: What's your Unpopular Music Opinion?

The Venom and Mercyful Fate choices are hilarious, not for the lyrics (Fate had even worse lyrics on that album) but for the idea that most people had even heard of them, let along listen to their music. Both were on independent labels which chain record stores usually ignored, neither received much if any radio play, and they certainly weren't going to be on MTV or played at Tipper's gym.

I would have thought a few of Zappa's tracks (Bobby Brown Goes Down, Titties and Beer, among others) would have better served their point.

Re: What's your Unpopular Music Opinion?

Is this list just for rock or music in general? Reason being, David Allan Coe could fill one up all on his own.

Not that I really listened to him outside of a couple of his mainstream songs, but some of the titles alone should be enough to warrant inclusion to a list.

Still find it funny that this song was featured on the Lawrence Welk Show.

The accordion player knew it shouldn't have been. He knew ...

The quote by Lawrence Welk at the end...."And there you heard a modern spiritual by Gayle and Dale."

The squares really are so square they have zero awareness...other than the accordion player as Toby mentioned. Fantastic!

Yeah, I had mentioned that about Mercyful Fate but it applies to Venom as well (although I had no problems finding both bands' albums back in the day ). But yes, they really had to do some digging to find those two obscure bands, and both had more "offensive" songs than the two chosen for the list.

The weirdest thing about that video, to me (and I've seen it on other clips from that show as well) is the studio audience applause over the end of the song, about 2 seconds before they are done singing. I guess it's done in post to speed things up, but it's SO weird. No real audience would ever clap at that point -- it's like an audience full of psychics.

Pretty sure it is sweetened and likely even just fake like the laugh tracks back then. If you watch any 70's variety shows, they all did that at the end of musical numbers. Fake news!

A bunch of live and taped live shows use applause signs. A producer probably jumped the gun with the sign.

The squares really are so square they have zero awareness...other than the accordion player as Toby mentioned. Fantastic!
It's like when Eric Cartman started a Christian rock band; all you gotta do is add "Jesus" to the lyrics and people will think it's a Christian song.

Not that I really listened to him outside of a couple of his mainstream songs, but some of the titles alone should be enough to warrant inclusion to a list.
It's pretty obvious that they were singling out rock/pop music. Since alcohol use was a criteria they used ("High n Dry," "Trashed"), they could have included any number of country-western songs. But when good ol' boys with boots and cowboy hats are shit-faced and driving drunk it's an act of patriotism and masculinity.

The accordion player knew it shouldn't have been. He knew ...

One Toke Over The Line (youtube.com)
Makes me want to see Lawrence Welk episode with "Nookie," "My Neck, My Back," "Wet Ass Pussy," and "Short Dick Man."

Maybe Post Modern Jukebox can do it.

The PMRC didn't try very hard. Frank Zappa's I Promise Not To Come In Your Mouth and AC/DC's Let Me Put My Love Into You and Giving The Dog A Bone are as romantic as the song titles suggest.

If they just listed Frank Zappa songs the hearings would still be going on.

Prog is boring and pointless - no one gives a shit that you can play a song in 13/16 signature over 7/8 polyrhythm!

Re: What's your Unpopular Music Opinion?

Because of the universal fundamentals of music, all music is basically the same with slight variations.

Arguing about preference over those variations is boring.

And my preferred variations are the best.

I like your preferred variations earlier work best.

I like that. More or less that there's no such thing as "bad or good music"...just different tastes.
