I worked with a guy from Russia for awhile. And while he was in the Soviet Army, on-duty guarding the Berlin Wall, a bunch of fellow 'officers' thought it'd be a good idea to listen to some Michael Jackson (circa 1984). They were later after being found-out, all lined-up in front of him, plus others that didn't partake & subsequently shot dead with AK-47s.

Here's the original. Nothing to do with the radio, nothing of this sort was ever on there. Except for "Voice of America" radio that was heavily jammed.
This is a memo for regional party officials to pass around, that pertains to shutting down discos (basically restaurants with a sound system and a dancefloor), if music by these bands would get played there.

It’s funny to me that Donna Summer’s offense was ‘Eroticism’ while Tina Turner’s was just plain old ‘Sex’.
It must have been all that moaning in Love to Love You Baby that pushed Donna into the next category.

Also , it’s stupidly hilarious to me that the Ramones were simply guilty of ‘Punk’.

At the same time the U.S had that Tipper Gore-organization which had enough power to force warning labels on record albums that contained (what they considered to be) offensive material.....

And was it not the americans that around the terror attack on WTC banned several songs to be played on radio as they were 'lyrically questionable'?
I get the grief and the need for healing, but the influence of some organizations in the U.S seem to have a mindset not that far from what could/can be seen in the Soviet Union/Russia.

And also...how fast things can change, four years later the Russians had their own (westernized) metal band, Gorky Park. And soon after the whole dissolution of the Soviet Union (and ensuing chaos) and time of seemingly rejection of the past (that later returned once things settled down....hello Putin)

Not that we Swedes have been spared from that kind of pressuring to stay away from what was/is not considered to be acceptable.....although I don't recall outright bans, it's more like pointing fingers which is bad enough (if you ask me)

I don't remember any lyrically questionable songs being banned after the WTC attack. I do however remember the dumb Senate Hearing with Tipper Gore to pit those labels on albums. I think those labels ended up helping album sales more than they hurt them, haha.

Nothing on the list about possession, use and trafficking of illegal drugs; I was wondering why none of McGhee’s bands weren’t on the list. So you get whacked for drugs- say I’m sorry and put on a rock show……. Call it good

I recall hearing about songs getting blacklisted during Operation Desert Storm, mostly because Paper Lace wanted to reissue one of their two hits, Billy Don't Be a Hero, and the subject matter was deemed unacceptable given the current conflict.

Music has been being banned and frowned upon for generations.

The stupid thing about these kinds of censorships is that the censors have to be very up to date with the music that is going to be banned.
So they had to listen to all these artists, to be able to identify their music.

It's like the Parental Advisory stickers on American music, those hypocrites had to listen to Prince singing about masturbation all the time.

Agree music has been frowned upon and banned. Just saying I didn't remember any music in particular being banned during the aftermath of 9/11. Of course that was what 20 years ago. So my memory may be a bit fuzzy on this subject 🙂

Wow, did not realize that. However, I remember hearing some of those bands on the radio when I lived in Detroit at the time. More of a corporate radio decision type of thing it sounds like. Either way pretty ridiculous but I guess we were in a whole new era at that time and probably people didn't know what to do. Man I remember that day like it was yesterday. Hard to believe that it has been 20 years now 😲

Dude....remember the next time you call people "Aceholes" that you made this reply in a post that has nothing to do with Ace Frehley, for absolutely no reason whatsoever than to go out of your way to try to get a rise and piss people off.
“Dude”🙂….It’s just carryover from other threads that day. Two can play the game. I HOPE it got under their skin. Score 1 for the previously silent majority 🤫

In reality I have all of Aces CDs. They’re good to great. In fact for my funeral we have the sheet music for all four Fractured Mirror pieces. Ready to be played in celebration. Some of the best music ever created. And NO. Absolutely No Kiss Kasket. 😂

Go have a malt and watch a sitcom. I’ll be in Kensington Friday if u or anyone wanna get some food and laugh a bit. PM me. My treat.

I participated in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. And a few skirmishes in Iraq No Fly Zone, Somalia and Afghanistan and again Iraq. As a member of the SCANG. We had our list presented to us of songs to steer away from but like all officers…we pitched it in the trash. Folks cannot do that these days in the military. No way. The number one song I remember hearing blasted by the kids for our friends to hear was IRON MAN….plus a few songs from Metallica’s KILL EM ALL Album. And when I said loud I mean..LOUD. Def Lepard, Van Halen, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer lots of BLACK SABBATH. Lots of Led Zep. Every song you can think of to get us down to that warrior level of thinking. And intimidate the enemy. Nothing was censored there that is for sure.

Rumor has it the Iraqi army finally surrendered after we blasted Peters Out of Control record over and over across the line. They begged us ….. IN TEARS…. to not make them throw up their hands.…so they could cover their ears. True story 😌
