  • Won't Someone Please Think Of The Children!?!?!??!?

    When I was a teenager I stumbled across this show on The Family Channel that was produced by some Christian "clean media" foundation. This would've been around '90/'91 The show was intended to inform concerned parents about music that would turn their kids into drug addled left-wing homosexual bondage freaks with an interest in free speech and leather1.

    It featured seemingly innocuous bands like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Ministry, Dead Kennedy's, Sex Pistols and several more fairly well-known bands of which I was already aware.

    The show analyzed the lyrics and detailed the deviant acts from songs along with pictures/videos of the offending bands and their album covers. Backstory about the bands also played into their selections - Erasure was picked solely because both members were openly gay2. I guess the idea was that if you saw your kid with one of these albums, you could sound the alarm and ship them off to jerry falwell's High School For the Previously Damned.
