    If you had anything controversial in our house, you didn't let the parents see or hear it ...


    Problem solved ....

    They were pretty liberal...

    But why chance it ???

    I feel bad for all of you. My dad manufactured 8 track tapes and there were about 400 of them in the house, everything from Waylon Jennings to Alice Cooper, George Carlin Cheech and Chong, pretty much a selection of everything from the 60's and 70's. They really couldn't censor anything because they provided most of it. We also got one of the first Quadrophonic 8 track decks. One of the few things about my childhood that didn't suck.

    Nope.
    But a friend has a great story about being at mutual friend's (Croaker) house in Jr. high listening to The Velvet Underground, Heroin.
    It was just where Lou was singing, Makes me feel like Jesus' son...when Croaker's (Catholic) mom burst it, tore the record off the turntable and broke it over her knee.
    This, my friends, is why we love Rock and Roll!

    Oh! And I remember the principal coming into the HS cafeteria and confiscating a Steppenwolf album while The Pusher was playing.
    He was loudly taunted.

    In the 60's I loaned my vinyl Steppenwolf album to my cousin. He took it to school and played "The Pusher" over the PA system and the principle made him physically scrape out the entire track with a nail file or something. I was pretty bummed when he brought me back the destroyed vinyl.
    EDIT: @charlie chitlin we posted at the same time :lol:

    Oh boy. I'm not sure I can remember most, but my folks were rather resistant to letting any of those evil metal bands in their house. Took a lot of convincing that I was a reasonably normal kid that just liked fast guitars and heavy riffs.

    Iron Maiden - Killers, Number of The Beast, Powerslave
    Machine Head - any of them.
    Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse; Ghost Reveries
    Pantera - any and all.
    It pretty much goes on like that.

    Once I pointed out that they both liked Sabbath and AC/DC, mom liked Priest and how similar they were in both lyrical content and overall image/perception to some of the above bands, they eased up. Of course, I cherry picked some of the dorkiest D&D-approved lyrics from Maiden to help appeal to our mutual love of Rush and their Tolkienian tendencies.

    Though, we all agreed that no Metallica should enter the home, which I found easier to follow than most other rules.

    I remember when my Mom took my older brother's Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels record and slammed it down on the countertop, it broke into a hundred pieces. She thought she heard the F word in "Devil With A Blue Dress On." My brother told her "You just have a dirty mind!" LOL I think it was at that point that she smashed the record.

    I was on an airplane circa 1986, in the 6th grade, with my Walkman in hand, cassette holder in hand and my mom sitting next to me. She spots my The Cure-Pornography cassette, she says whagwan and rips out the tape from the cassette. I was stunned but then she did allow me to borrow her pen so I could wind it all back up into the cassette. Hmmmmmm. 4 years later she let me go to the Eazy-E and NWA straight outta Compton tour/concert. hmmmmmmm again

    I miss my mom

    My dad disliked most of my Hendrix collection, but really hated Cold Turkey by the Plastic Ono Band with its drug references.

    He quite liked Tommy tho.

    I was 8 when Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik came out by the Chili Peppers. My grandma bought me the cassette and I had it for a day. The parental advisory sticker drew attention from my mom and then she read all the lyrics. That tape went to my 18 year old cousin, haha. I dont think grandma knew anything about that. She just wanted to take me to the music store and let me pick out something.

    Nothing confiscated, the only objections to any of my music was when I played it at full volume. There was a period of a few months between 16/17 where I'd put on Deicide's Legion and then take a nap while it was playing. Even if it did only go for 20 minutes, I can see why somebody might find that obnoxious if the music isn't really their "thing".

    OK,
    I have a twist on OP's thread, story please:

    I actually went to a Catholic Boarding HS in the 1970's ( my choice, I could write a book...)
    Anyway the FIRST 3 years, the dorm is, you sleep in a huge room with 30-50 beds; big bathrooms/showers/lockers and a Priest is next to each ' Wing' in a little apartment.

    But Senior year ( if you lasted all 4!) you are in the Senior wing- little 2 or 3 person rooms ( we could have coffee makers and SMOKE, which we all did)
    And most importantly, you you could bring YOUR OWN STEREO!

    So it was a cool thing in the Fall, moving in to see who had the coolest Stereo, as by then we are all good friends. 1976

    I had a cheap but cool ' component system' : Sherwood amp/receiver, Garrard turntable, Sony speakers $239!

    Bottom line, this was also the year I discovered the Allman Brothers at Fillmore East.

    My room was near the Senior Priest's apartment, and about a month into Senior year I must have had it cranked, someone complained, I got in trouble and had to move my Stereo into his apartment for a few weeks.
    I was pissed, but got thru it- 10 other guys with cool Stereos to listen to ( only 21 of us )

    There wasn't much I could get away with even bringing into the house, and I had to listen to everything quietly. So I listened a lot to the radio and my dad flipped out a bit over Berlin of all things. Even jazz got comments and scrutiny. I had more leniency with library books as they looked okay, although they worried they'd "mess up my mind."

    The most specific example I recall was a cartoon, though, "The Three Little Bops." I watched it and turned the TV up a bit when it was on, until my mom finally paid some attention to it and got very upset at the end, "The Big Bad Wolf he learned the rule. You gotta get hot to play real cool." (The wolf blows himself up, goes to hell, and then can play well). She got even more upset when I tried to explain it (I think I was 9 or so). She didn't want me to watch when it came on after that.

    Pearl Jam-Ten. My uncle gave it to me on CD for my 8th birthday! They took it away quickly after hearing me blaring Once. Soon after, I snuck away from mom at Kmart and bought it on cassette with quarters, dimes, and nickels. They didn't find that one. Still love Ten. Still turned out moderately okay.

    My Dad was the local dance/party DJ through the 50's/60's we had a stack of records at home that we kids played all the time.

    When it came to the records/FM radio we started listening to as we got older, my folks never had a problem other than noise levels... never what kind of music it was or the lyrics, etc.....

    Early Steppenwolf because of " The Pusher " . It didn't matter that the lyrics were written by Hoyt Axton nor was it known or cared who he was .

    Alice Cooper Killer and anything by Black Sabbath. I probably bought five Killer albums. I knew the Sabbath albums were verbotten so after about three of those I gave up. Snapped in half, cover and jacket torn to pieces and thrown of the floor for me to pick up and put in the garbage can.
