Every rose has its thorn
Just like every night has its dawn
And every cowboy has a sad, sad song

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Talk Dirty To Me"
The Dirty Lyrics:
At the drive-in
in the old man's Ford.
In the bushes
till I'm screaming 'more!'
In the basement
lock the cellar door and baby
talk dirty to me.
Why They're Dirty:
The title of the song says that the lyrics of this song are going to be filthy as hell. Of course Poison was always a band that's been filthy as hell.

Songs That Are Banned:

"Open Up And Say... Ahh (Album)"
The original cover showed a model dressed like a demon with clawed nails, a giant tongue and the like. Christians objected and most future releases of the album only showed the model's eyes.
Submitted by: GlamRockNinjaLord
"Flesh & Blood (Album)"
The original cover art for this album in Japan only, showed a freshly inked tattoo (with blood). All future releases used the same cover as had originally been released everywhere else in the world (a clean tattoo), after the bloody cover was deemed too gory for retail.

Song Lawsuits:

"Various songs"
In 2011, Poison were sued by a now-forgotten Glam Metal group called Kid Rocker who claimed Poison guitarist CC Deville had stolen their guitar riffs, specifically the songs "Cry Tough", Talk Dirty To Me", "Fallen Angel", and "Ride The Wind". CC had played with that band very briefly prior to joining Poison, but as far as I know, he kept his royalties...

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):
