Long before the PMRC, music has been underfire for one reason or another. After the PMRC however,
warning labels became far more prelevant with the black and white 'Explicit Lyrics' tag. We're looking
to list all the albums with warnings EXCEPT for the explicit lyrics label (too many to list).
Entries Beginning with F
This album came wrapped in a brown paper like bag and warning due to its cover.
"Frank Zappa Meets The Mothers of Prevention," Frank Zappa
This album contains material which a truly free society would neither fear nor suppress. In some socially retarded areas, religious fanatics and ultra-conservative political organizations violate your First Amendment Rights by attempting to censor rock & roll albums. We feel that this is un-Constitutional and un-American. As an alternative to these government-supported programs (designed to keep you docile and ignorant), Barking Pumpkin is pleased to provide stimulating digital audio entertainment for those of you who have outgrown the ordinary. The language and concepts contained herein are GUARANTEED NOT TO CAUSE ETERNAL TORMENT IN THE PLACE WHERE THE GUY WITH THE HORNS AND THE POINTED STICK CONDUCTS HIS BUSINESS. This guarantee is as real as the threats of the video fundamentalists who use attacks on rock music in their attempt to transform America into a nation of check-mailing nincompoops (in the name of Jesus Christ). If there is a hell, its fires wait for them, not us."
The track "Go Cry On Someone Else's Shoulder" carries the warning that it is "very greasey. You should not listen to it. You should wear it on your hair". Bear in mind that this was in 1966!
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."
On the back of the album, there is an article reading Discoveries In Aquabeat, by Clucky Waffleskin. When you open the album, there is an extremely long page describing their superhero mythos.
