Parental Advisory in Leftovers

Has anyone ever wondered why there's no parental advisory explicit lyrics tag on the Flex-Able Leftovers album. I was listening it today, and this question came to my mind. And those of you who say that it shouldn't, f*** yourself with your face. :lol:

Wow. Mine doesn't. Must be some byrocratical thing difference between the States and back here.

I have noticed on some online stores that it does say there is explicit content. There is no sticker on my copy. I believe the States is a bit more strict about these things than other places.

Exactly. It all started with the PRMC, lead by Tipper Gore. A bunch of senators wives in the 80's decided that lots of music was "immoral" and "un-christian", so they started the whole music censorship. They are reason we have "parental advisory" on albums. Frank Zappa, Twisted Sister, and John Denver (makes no sense) were among the main targets. But to be honest, their cause fails. Parental advisory does nothing to dissuade someone from buying a record, in fact it ATTRACTS younger people even more to it. Just like the "War on Drugs". You tell young people somethings bad long enough they are actually more likely to do it. Also, I feel that their intent is bland and fascist. I don't think someone listens to Ozzy and then goes and kills someone because of the lyrics of the song, or the song itself. People like that have issues in the first place, and were going to kill anyways. You can't blame music for people actions, its ridiculous. There was something wrong with the person in the first place. Anyways, sorry if i got too off topic.

Yeah, younger kids would think "Oh, there's lots of swearing in it, it's cool, it's my favourite song now!" :lol:

But yeah, censorship is bad.

Prince's song "Darling Nikki" from Purple Rain was what sparked the entire controversy. Tipper bought it for her daughter and was "shocked" by it's portrayal of female masturbation.

It's really one of Prince's tamer songs. Prince's albums previous to Purple Rain had a lot more naughtiness on them....

All the parental advisories I've seen in Finland are usually printed on the cover (example Pantera - The Great Southern Trendkill and Reinventing the Steel), except Guns and Roses Use Your Illusion II the PA was attached to the cover of the tape with a sticker, and no PA in Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power.

I listen to Pantera you might say. :D

Here's some irony for you . . .

The very first CD/Album to have the PAS on it was Frank Zappa's "Jazz from Hell" "Parental Advisory - Explicit Lyrics"

Um, "LYRICS????"

:roll:
