The website Ultimate Classic Rock surveyed a number of rock songs from the past and put together a list of those with lyrics that would likely never make it to vinyl today due to political correctness.
The list includes some of the biggest names in rock history and is both surprising and revealing.
I take pride in being politically incorrect, but even I have to admit I found myself raising an eyebrow at some of the lyrics.
It’s too long to analyze in its entirety, but watch as I share some of highlights (or are they lowlights?).
Ample food for thought is provided in a review of the lyrical content of yesteryear’s pop music, but there is an irony here when one looks at the rap music of today with its liberal use of the N-word and anything that rhymes with “mother F’er”.
Those lyrics are as vile as it gets, yet songs from this genre seem to get a free pass.
