Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Pat Benatar's, "Hell is for Children"
The Lyrics:
HELL! HELL IS FOR HELL! HELL IS FOR HELL!
Hell is for children!
Why:
I first thought that this was indicating that children were going straight to Hell itself. I later found out that it was about child abuse, but then again that's a form of "Hell" in this material life anyway : *** (

Neil Young's, "Rockin' In The Free World"
The Lyrics:
I see a woman in the night With a baby in her hand Under an old street light Near a garbage can Now she puts the kid away, and she's gone to get a hit She hates her life, and what she's done to it There's one more kid that will never go to school Never get to fall in love, never get to be cool.
Why:
Cold-hearted Neil let a baby die even though he could have saved its life.
