Singers Who Act -> Latest Entries

Phil Collins appeared in: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Before becoming famous as the lead singer of Genesis, growing up in England Phil Collins was a child performer doing some theatre as well appearing in some movies and TV shows. I just heard recently he played one of the banished children in the village of the fictional country of Vulgaria in the 1968 movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. But the scene(s) he was in were edited out of the final cut of the movie. So maybe that shouldn't count but I still think it's interesting.

Better Off Solo -> Latest Entries

Tom Morello from Rage Aginst the Machine
He has played in the supergroup Audioslave, released solo acoustic albums under the moniker 'The Nightwatchman', gives tutorials on Youtube about how he makes those innovative-crazy sounds on his electric 6-string ('You Too Can Be a Guitar God!') and on top of that - around 2014 when Little Steven Van Zandt was contractually involved in a movie project, Tom played guitar on the Bruce Springsteen 'High Hopes' album (some tracks, not all) and I saw him sub for Little Steven on that tour. During the band intros tom played a wacky guitar workout. Since it was 2014, the 'Year of the Beatles' (50th anniversary of them 'invading' America, which meant that nearly every band I saw that year played a Beatles song - TRUE), it was find of 'funny' to see Tom Morello w/ Nils Lofgren sharing a mic singing a Beatles song, as well as other NON-PROTEST popular classic gems that Bruce often does near the end of his 4 hour shows.

Song Lawsuits -> Latest Entries
"band name," J. Band
The reunited J. Geils Band with Peter Wolf back as frontman, had scheduled several dates in many cities but were forced to cancel the tour due to a lawsuit by J. Geils himself. After all, how could these guys call themselves the "J. Geils Band" if guitarist Geils himself ain't in it? He's 70 years old and he's been on the road with another band but promoting himself and using his name "J. Geils" alone - no "Band". - Submitted By: Leader Of The Band

"Sterility," Iggy Pop. It comes a number of minutes after 'V.I.P.', the last listed track on the 'Beat Em Up' CD. It's mostly a non-rhyming rant with plenty of profanity. Still, it's a listenable song. - Submitted By: Ziggy Popsickle

"O Come All Ye Faithful," Benedictines Of Mary, Queen Of Apostles: "I Bought the CD "Caroling At Ephesus" by this group. This familiar carol is the 24th and last track on this generally melodious and well preformed collection. The first time I played the disc, I was sure I was hearing one of more dogs barking outside at what I eventually noted to be 20 seconds and 49 seconds into the track. On playing it the second time I noted that, coincidentally dogs seemed to be barking outside again. The third time I still at first thought that dogs were barking outside then quickly realized it seemed too much of a coincidence. So I played it, listening close to the speakers to note where the barking sound was coming from, and found it to be definitely on the disc, not coming from outside. It was only after noting all this that I first noticed that the CD cover shows a dog in front of these singing nuns. So maybe it was dog barking heard on the track. But I sort of thought the sound resembled somewhat the barking of a smaller dog than the one pictured. After the two background barking-like sounds on the track, I heard on listening closely and noted other extraneous background sounds, some resembling human speech, some more obscure. In any event no such extraneous sounds, whether from dogs, people, or whatever, seem to do anything to enhance the musical quality of the track. And I found no similar background sounds on any other track of the disc." - Submitted By: Karen Smith

Snorting Song - Son Volt
Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones claimed a few years ago that he snorted up some cocaine with his father's ashes mixed with it! Of course he may have just been saying that, who knows? A movie that he played a cameo role in was about to be released. Anyway, Son Volt wrote the song 'Cocaine and Ashes' about this. It's on their 2009 CD 'American Central Dust'. - Submitted By: Sun Snorter

Music With a Warning Label -> Latest Entries
"Thriller," Michael Jackson
The title tracks music video reads "Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult'' ~Michael Jackson
Adam
"The Singular Adventures Of ....," Style Council
The inner liner notes of this best-of CD has some kooky story about a "Cappuccino Kid" and his "literature". On the bottom of this page is the proud announcement keeping in tune with the UN sanctions on the apartheid regime of South Africa (this album was put out in 1989): THIS RECORDING IS NOT FOR SALE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Ain't Gonna Play Sun City Either
"Guilty Pleasure," Ashley Tisdale
The CD and back cover contains a FBI Anti-Piracy warning notice which had "FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorized Copying is Punishable Under Federal Law" (like the ones shown on Blu-ray Discs and DVDs currently released by Lions Gate Home Entertainment including Grace Unplugged). But if you try to copy/rip a MP3 file from a CD using a program (or download a MP3 file online) without prior licensing, you'll be punished immediately.
Brandon Reina
"The Great Escape," Blur
In the booklet, there is a picture of Neuschwanstein Castle (the same photo as on the Country House single cover) and underneath this photo it says "Warning: Private Property". This doesn't mean anything as such and is just a quirk in the packaging.
Lee
"Greatest Hits," Devo
The CD itself (not the case) has a picture of someone sticking a fork into a toaster. I figure it's a "what not to do" sort of thing...
GlamRockNinjaLord
"The Last In Line," Dio
Though there are no lyrics in the booklet, the back cover of this album has some lyrics from the title track written in fancy medieval-looking font. "We'll know for the first time, if we're evil or divine. We're the last in line. - RJD"
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Sex (single)," Motley Crue
Motley Crüe's single "Sex", released prior to their 2012 tour with KISS, has a front cover design in the style of and parodying the "Parental Advisory" stickers. The top and bottom of the cover feature the words "Mötley" and "Crüe" respectively, while the middle part just says the word "SEX".
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Invasion Of Your Privacy," Ratt
Ratt's sophomore full-length release got a "Parental Advisory" sticker, due to the title and album cover being references to voyeurism, a topic the PMRC viewed as inappropriate. The sticker has since been removed.
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Full Moon Fever," Tom Petty
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."
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Mechanical Resonance," Tesla
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."
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Erotica," Madonna
Some of the album covers have Parental Advisory Ratings but everything bad on the CD is probably censored
William
"The Hits (1993 - 2003)," Marty Dread
This reggae hits compilation has the usual "Unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of ..." but it doesn't say "federal copywrite laws". Instead it says that unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of the "King of Kings Jah Rastafari". Honest!
Don't Piss Off Haile Selassie
"As Good As Dead," Local H
On the album's sticker, it reads: "Yeah mom, the 'F Word' is in it", a parody of the explicated lyrics sticker.
S
"Low DVD EP," Foo Fighters
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."
Archie
"eMotive," A Perfect Circle
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.
G
"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.
G
"Broken," Nine Inch Nails
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
"Amnesiac," Radiohead
The back cover says "Radiohead. Amnesiac. Store away from direct sunlight, preferably in a dark drawer with your secrets. See inside for details."
Lee
"Live Era '87-'93," Guns N' Roses
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.
Lee
"Primitive Enema," Butt Trumpet
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.
