Seems like a dream now it was so long ago.....
It was 1985 when "Tipper" Gore strolled into her daughter's room and heard "Darling Nikki" blasting from the speakers. I don't blame her daughter...I did the same thing. Problem was....her daughter, Karenna, was 11 at the time.
I won't post the lyrics here - but if you want to find them you can search the internet, thanks to Al Gore - wait, what? Nevermind.
Anyway - Tipper thought for certain her child's life would be ruined if she didn't do something quickly.
Along with a couple of other ladies she founded the Parental Music Resource Center who published the original "Filthy Fifteen" - a list of songs they deemed to dirty to be heard by minors....
This was the genisis (no, not the band - their music is fine for all ages) for the "Parental Advisory" stickers on albums and CDs - which actually turned into a great asset for me because I no longer had to guess if the songs on the CD I was purchasing actually had the 'real' music or the cleaned up version. Thanks Tipper.
In any event - here's the list of the original Filthy 15
1 Prince"Darling Nikki"
2 Sheena Easton"Sugar Walls"
3 Judas Priest"Eat Me Alive"
4 Vanity"Strap On 'Robbie Baby'"
5 Mötley Crüe"Bastard"
6 AC/DC "Let Me Put My Love Into You"Sex
7 Twisted Sister "We're Not Gonna Take It"
8 Madonna"Dress You Up"
9 W.A.S.P."Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)"
10 Def Leppard"High 'n' Dry (Saturday Night)"
11 Mercyful Fate"Into the Coven"
12 Black Sabbath"Trashed"
13 Mary Jane Girls"In My House"
15 Cyndi Lauper"She Bop"
