I never experienced this myself, I never listened or liked Rap, which, most of the albums contain profanity. Now, obviously enough rock albums do too. I remember buying 311's Blue Album and it having a PA sticker on it and Green Day's Dookie, although some album's didn't carry one like Live's "Throwing Copper" .

Now, a now former friend of mine grew up in a Religious Catholic home. I'm told, His Mother overheard him playing Green day's song "Longview" where it talks about Masturbation. Well.. he got that Cassette tape(or CD) taken away. This probably explains his issues he has today(which I have not spoken to him in years), but that's another story.

Anyway, were you not allowed to listen to certain music? The only think I remember not being allowed to watch on TV, was Married with Children and one other FOX show( say like being 9 or 10).

My parents strictly made me listen to WNIC and WOMC in the 90s,
Then when I got into 5th grade the bus drive would put on Q955 and 93-1 DRQ.
They couldn't stop me then. Lol


Music is my life.

Back about '57 my Dad told my sister, who was listening to CKLW, to "turn that crap off!" She just went to her room to listen to it. What do you expect from a guy who once played for Lawrence Welk.

I had a Cherry Vinyl 10" single of Dead Kennedy's Too Drunk to Fuck that I bought from School Kids when I was 15. It was taken away. Compared to some of the other stuff I had at the time, it was pretty tame.

I had an uphill battle and won. For a long time I wasn't allowed to by cassettes with parental advisory explicit lyrics labels on them.
