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 P
"On the back side of the album (import copies anyway), there are actually two warning labels. A red sticker the size of a baseball card carries the message that the sticker NOT be removed (and covers most of the artwork). Below that, is the warning "This wiring can seriously damage your health"
Seriously, that REALLY IS the name of the album! Anyway, it has a label on the back saying "This features no subliminal messages or backmasking. All messages from the devil are played forward in Standard American English." Below that is a footnote saying, "Please try not to commit suicide after listening to this album."
Extreme's most successful album originally had a "Parental Advisory" sticker on the cover until "More Than Words" became a hit. Then it was removed from future printings. Actually, the only thing obscene about the album was its title.
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
"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.
"Parental Advisory: Contains lots of the usual raunchy words, and we even made up few new ones." This is a new supergroup composed of ShoEboX (of Worm Quartet), Chris Mezzolesta (of Power Salad), Devo Spice and The Great Luke Ski. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NM8e8uCsqac
