Jason Kidd performed: What the Kidd Did
I've heard worse rap songs by NBA players ("Champion" by Ron Artest and "K.O.B.E." by Kobe Bryant). It's listenable. This was released on the 1994 album "B-Ball's Best Kept Secret", a compilation album of songs by then-NBA players Dana Barros, Malik Sealy, Shaquille O'Neal, Cedric Ceballos, Brian Shaw, Chris Mills, Kidd, Isaiah "J.R." Rider, Dennis Scott, and Gary Payton.

"Revolution," The Beatles
In 1987, "Revolution" became the first Beatles recording to be licensed for use in a television commercial. Nike paid $500,000 for the right to use the song for one year, split between recording owner Capitol-EMI and song publisher ATV Music Publishing (owned by Michael Jackson). Commercials using the song started airing in March 1987.
The three surviving Beatles, through their record company Apple, filed in July 1987 objecting to Nike's use of the song. The suit was aimed at Nike, its advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, and Capitol-EMI Records. Capitol-EMI said the lawsuit was groundless because they had licensed the use of "Revolution" with the "active support and encouragement of Yoko Ono Lennon, a shareholder and director of Apple." Ono had expressed approval when the commercial was released, saying the commercial "is making John's music accessible to a new generation".
The "Revolution" lawsuit and others involving the Beatles and EMI were settled out of court in 1989, with the terms kept secret. The financial website TheStreet.com included the Nike "Revolution" advertisement campaigh in its list of the 100 key business events of the 20th century, as it helped "commodify dissent".

"Best I Ever Had," Drake
In a lawsuit filed June 24th, 2010, Playboy Enterprises sued Drake for copyright infringement by over alligations that his breakout smash "Best I Ever Had" sampled "Fallin' in Love" by Hamilton Joe, Frank & Reynolds, without attribution or permission.
The suit names Drake, as well as Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group, and asserts that Playboy "has suffered, and will continue to suffer irreparable injury" from the alleged infringement. The lawsuit demands that "all infringing works be recalled and destroyed."
As part of its claim, Playboy also alleges that "each defendant either knew, or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright." Source: Wikipedia.org - Submitted By: Isac

A sticker was added below the usual warning (from the content in the "Low" video that got it banned from MTV) so that it can read "Parental Advisory Warning: Explicit Content ...and also big trucks."
On the actual CD ( not the case), there is the longest anti-illegal music downloading warning I have ever seen. I'm not even going to bother putting it here, but it's worth seeing if you own the album.
"Prisoners In Paradise," Europe
It's a goofy little thing at the end of the lyrics in the CD booklet...Europe will not be held responsible for...then it lists like 4 hilarious effects the music may cause.
In the liner notes, there is a warning reading, "Caution: Not for use with mono devices." The reason for this being is that Trent stated the songs do not sound right when being played through mono devices.
eg: Mike Smith
The back cover says "Radiohead. Amnesiac. Store away from direct sunlight, preferably in a dark drawer with your secrets. See inside for details."
Look very closely at the cover, just below the 2nd poster on the top row. It says "Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Hollywood Rose Is Bad For Your Health (but worth the risk)". You might need a big LP to see it because the writing is very small.
This is what the lyric sheet says concerning the lyrics to "The Grindcore Song": We've decided not to give you the lyrics to this song because we are sure they would entice you to do nasty things to yourself and to others and we don't wish to be held responsible for it. Hail Satan.
F*ck the PMRC
The second album from David Bowie's hard rock band Tin Machine was released in 1991. The cover art has 4 ancient Greek statues, of NUDE men (oh no). The morals of our Grand Republic were saved and for the U.S. release the genetilia of the statues were "airbrushed" off. They did a lousy job - it looks more the statues had their ding dongs torn off. Oh but the morality police saved the day again (NOT).
Ain't That America? Home Of the Free
The cover says "Attention: This Carton Contains (1) Alice Cooper Muscle of Love" and also says "Fragile".
On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
There is a sticker on it that says- "Okay! Get into gizmode! Be a filter jerk! Or a zombie nerd! This record has a lifetime warranty."
There's the track "Reno" which is a story about someone who visits a flophouse in Reno. The hooker names her prices for certain sex acts ( you pay more to put it "up the *ss"). Then there's a reference to fellatio (maybe). In either case there's no "Parental Advisory" emblem on the CD but on the back cover there is a brief warning statement that says there's "adult content".
They Call Him Bruce
Not exactly a warning label, though I am sure this fits here. Arab Strap left Chemikal Underground in 1999 to go to Go Beat! At the time, there were small forms in all UK music releases for mailing list purposes. Normally it was are you Male/Female? The Strap decided to change it to- Do You Have A Cock/A Fanny? (British meaning). The new record company were not amused and pulled the form before release. There is a photocopy and this reference within the sleeve notes for 'Ten Years of Tears', released by Chemikal Underground around 2008.
During the autumn of 1982 the economy was still suffering big time from the post-Vietnam War era recession, which was the worst economic situation since the Great Depression (sound familiar?). November had Congressional elections and Reaganomics hadn't really made an effect yet. Pres. Reagan's GOP cohorts in Congress generally took a "midterm" election trouncing because of this (deja vu ?). Other people deviced ways to beat the inflationary doldrums. One method was for record labels to issue 1-sided 45s. The single would cost about 1/2 that of the normal 2-sided variety. The B-side (flip) simply said "Do not play this side". Only a handful of 1-sided 45s were even issued. One of them was a Go-Gos hit and another notorious "recession buster" was "Sweet Time" by REO Speedwagon which peaked at #26. As the economy improved in 1983 this brief trend was squelched.
Everything That Comes Around Goes Around...
On some LP pressings, the front cover bore the words "Made in a castle with better equipment."
On the actual CD it says "Side A, Warning Do Not Play Side B" - this is because the album is made to look like a vinyl record and if you play side b all the paint might come of the so-called 'Side A'.
On the back there is a label saying " HEALTH WARNING - This record could be hazardous to the health of cloth-eared nincompoops. If you suffer from this condition, consult your Doctor immediately ".
[Note to editor: Am resubmitting this due to a typo in the original!] "Parental Advisory: Contains lots of the usual raunchy words, and we even made up a few new ones." This is a new supergroup composed of ShoEboX (of Worm Quartet), Chris Mezzolesta (of Power Salad), Devo Spice (formerly Sudden Death) and The Great Luke Ski. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM8e8uCsqac

The "warning" is really on the CD itself. It's a picture disc made up to resemble a truck tire in appearance (a monster tire is on the cover too). There's the artist and album names, the track list and copyright info, written in a circumscribe format. After the record label credits and warning (copying prohibited, ...) there's a simple sentence: Do not inflate above 50 p.s.i. This "warning" is an example of humor more than anything else.
