I need the names of a few songs that are controversial because they have allegedly incited violence. The ones I have at the moment are:
Cop Killer - Ice-T
Suicide Solution - Ozzie Osborne
Sympathy for the Devil - The Rolling Stones
Anarchy in the UK - The Sex Pistols
Swindler's Lust - Public Enemy
Stained Class (album) - Judas Priest
Smack My Bitch Up - Prodigy
Bullet in the Head - Rage Against The Machine
Altar of Sacrifice - Slayer
Any help appreciated.
go to google and type 'charles manson helter skelter' in the 'all words' header.
Plenty of material for the looking.
Or enter 'violent song lyrics'
Of course, every Alice Cooper song in the early 70s instilled in young males the desire to eat live chickens, mutilate small animals and kill babies. After doing those dastardly deeds, the boys would commit suicide by hanging or using a guillotine.
Odd, the only time I had those urges was when Donnie Osmond was on the radio.
Helter Skelter is a good suggestion - thanks for that. I did a Google search before I came here however.
Death on two legs, Welcome To The Jungle, Master of Puppets - have any of those songs allegedly incited violence?
I'm interested in Night Prowler. I know it's ac/dc and I have the song and lyrics. But was there a case made by someone that it incited violence?
"Saturday Night Holocaust" - Dead Kennedys
"Blood" - Pearl Jam
Every song Rage Against the Machine ever did
"Rape Me" - Nirvana
"Hit Me With Your Best Shot" - Pat Benatar
"Suggestion" - Fugazi (this one I really don't get)
All ov the above have alledgedly incited violence, except "Saturday Night Holocaust" - but it did get their lead singer busted for obscenity *is very confused*
A highly opinionated Christian interpretation of the evils of Rock music. It's a video series (that you can order!) but the link does include a 5 part essay on music's evils.
Part Three talks about Night Prowler inciting Richard Ramirez (the Night Stalker). Others songs were listed as well.
