    My Dad gave me both of these albums!
    He told me not to let my sisters see the naked Lennons on the White Album poster.
    My parents did not censor, or concern themselves with all the 60-70s pop/rock I loved.
    I’m grateful to them, I lucked out!

    Only one, and at the height of the midwest's satanic panic. My cousin had dubbed a cassette for me, so my mom couldn't even see the tasteful artwork.

    I remember my Mom coming downstairs to do a load of laundry, and I was cranking some Nazareth. All she needed to hear to be totally offended was the repetitive lyric, “Now you’re messing with a S.O.B.”
    She gave me a dirty look and said sarcastically, “Well, I bet I can’t guess the name of THAT song!”
    I simply replied “Hair of the dog” LOL
    She wasn’t impressed

    As probably the last of the “physical” music buying generation this has happened
    most of my NU-Metal CD’s were confiscated at some point

    I guess I had normal teenage hormonal times that my parents equated heavy music with

    Brain Salad Surgery. And they didn't even see why they should have!

    edit: my mother once tried to confiscate Mothership Connection after mishearing 'P-Funk' as another four lettered F-word.

    Years after the fact, I accused my Mom of stamping on my Chipmunk's "Christmas Song" 45. Dog knows, I was playing it incessantly and I'd discovered the "Neutral" switch on the turntable so I could spin it backwards and forwards with my finger (I was 5yrs old). Somehow it ended up broken.:confused: When I confronted her (years later), she just smiled and said, "I'll never tell..."

    Nobody said anything to us about our music...but then again we had nothing even remotely offensive. After my older brother died (when I was in High School), I found a reel-to-reel tape of his with the "Fire" cut from the "Crazy World of Arthur Brown"...recorded over and over and over; a whole reel of "Fire". I often wondered what would cause such obsession. He was "different" than the rest of us.

    This was kind of a one-off because I had earlier bought a tab book of the guitar parts (so many power chords).

    I was mainly into John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Mile Davis, Ornette Coleman, etc... They didn't like the music, but there was nothing they could say.

    Oh, I hear you. The xylophone made me want to sledge-hammer the speakers. I thought the rest of the album was okay though.

    My Mother kept threatening to throw my Levi's in the bin. At one point, I contemplated keeping them at my buddy's house.

    :D

    I wore headphones a lot, when they were around- and kept all the packaging out of sight.

    Only one record can I attribute to my parents confiscating. The rest that went walkies, my sister stole, but that's another story for another time.

    The one they didn't like was 'The Winkers Song' by Ivor Biggun & The Red Nosed Burglars.

    I fail to see what issues they had with it.

    None confiscated. However, after taking me to a record store and told me to pick out something for my bday, she refused to get DEVO. She did get me Pink Floyd, The Wall. I still like Pink Floyd much more than Devo, so it worked out ok.

    Despite going through a fairly strict religious phase for most of my childhood, my parents were relatively chill with my music. Still, my mom freaked out a bit when she saw my Skinny Puppy Chainsaw EP which had the lyrics were printed on the back. The lyrics are typically opaque Skinny Puppy lyrics, really nothing that noteworthy, but she seemed to think I was going to join a some demon cult. They never did confiscate it.

    I remember one day in 1970 my Dad trying to connect to his truculent home-from-College-knows-it-all-son by turning on the NYC FM station in the car and praising Roadhouse Blues. God! I miss him!

    The Who. "Who's Next". My mom thought it was in bad taste. I kept it at a friends house until I went to college.

    My parents didn't seem to mind the Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath, Ozzy or anything else.

    But my mom did take my Slade albums and my sister's BTO albums.

    Because she LIKED them !!!

    We didn't get them back until she passed away.

    white album.

    my dad thought there was something really bad in it.

    A few years later, he was dead... so, maybe he was right.

    Dinah-Moe Hum had a comment or two directed towards it, I'm sure.
    They probably wondered about their suburban preteen coming home with Muddy Waters and Lightnin Hopkins.

    I never suffered the indignity of being censored, but my cousin was. He had to buy all his music on cassettes, so my aunt and uncle could review them and, if necessary, remove the offending bits. For example there was 5 min 43 sec blank on his Steppenwolf cassette where "The Pusher" would have been. I found this whole concept deeply disturbing.
