Okay so those of us on MU who are old enough to remember Oingo Boingo, specifically the song, "Little Girls" (Not including myself, since I'm only 20). My sister (who I also got into metal) was listening to said song and looking at the music video, seen here:


This was released in 1981, if I'm not mistaken. The PMRC wasn't established until 1985. My question is, WHY DID TIPPER GORE GET PISSED ABOUT BANDS LIKE MOTLEY CRUE (Not that I like Motley Crue) WHEN THIS SONG CAN OBVIOUSLY BE INTERPRETED AS A PEDOPHILE'S ANTHEM?

Now, I'm not pointing any fingers here. I've heard it was about how the singer likes midgets or something. But still, at least in Metal, our sex songs are obviously about women who are of legal age.

lol that's the funniest thing I've seen since youtube.com/watch?v=E5CO2_KCLrA
..."I gave Osama a 69!" hahahahah you gotta see it man, you'll get it when you do, fuckin ace.

Can't say I remember Oingo Boingo, but that song puts Gary Glitter to shame.

I don't think Al was in the Senate at that time. There's your explanation. Tipper did that to bring attention to her and Al's political exlpoits. Keep in mind this about Al Gore. During the Iran Contra hearings, Ollie North spoke of a greater terror that was rising in the Middle East. He spoke of a man who was builing up a militia and terrorizing the smaller villages and cities. He was laughed at by a certain Senator who had a hard time pronouncing the individuals name. The man he spoke of, was Osama Bin Laden. The Senator who laughed him off, was Al Gore.

Hmmm. Remember "My Sharona" by The Knack? That was another song lauding the joys of underage girls. I wonder how many songs cover this topic?
