Remember back in the day when the PMRC was getting all crazy about "dirty" lyrics in music, and everyone hated Tipper Gore, who was the most famous person in her family?  Ah, the '80s. Anyway, Idolator just posted a list of the PMRC's "Filthy Fifteen" songs from back then, and even some of the videos. I'm not sure that Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" or Madonna's "Dress You Up" would still offend too many people today. Prince's "Darling Nikki" and Sheena Easton's "Sugar Walls" -- maybe.  WASP's "Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)" -- yeah, that might still raise eyebrows.  Not that I'm endorsing it or anything: there's definitely a line between clever and stupid, and there's also a line between sexy and douchey, and they fall all over it.
