This App documents the events that led to the implementation of the "Parental Advisory" labels on music albums.
In 1985, the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC) came up with a list called The Filthy Fifteen. The top fifteen songs recommended to be banned because of their reference to violence, sex, drugs, alcohol or the occult. Heavy Metal acts side by side with pop stars - Prince, AC/DC, Madonna, Motley Crue, Mary Jane Girls, Judas Priest, W.A.S.P., Prince, Mercyful Fate, Sheena Easton, Venom, Vanity, Def Leppard, Cyndi Lauper and Twisted Sister were all on The FILTHY FIFTEEN list. In November of 1985 the RIAA agreed to put "Parental Advisory" labels on selected releases at their own discretion.
