Story about this misheard lyric by: Jenni Mellody

Listening to the radio back in the 1980s and was singing at the top of my lungs with my older brother the line 'Hit me with your pet shark, fire away' My brother laughed, told the rest of my brothers and was forever picked on for this. They did explain the real lyrics, but only after I was reduced to tears and mum told them off.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Hell is for Children"
The Lyrics:
HELL! HELL IS FOR HELL! HELL IS FOR HELL!
Hell is for children!
Why:
I first thought that this was indicating that children were going straight to Hell itself. I later found out that it was about child abuse, but then again that's a form of "Hell" in this material life anyway : *** (

Songs That Are Banned:

"Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
Banned after 9/11.
Submitted by: Beth
"Shadows Of The Night"
It's not the song really that was banned (not that I know of anyway) but the music video for it. The video for this song from the 80s was and is banned in Germany (it's never been played on German tv to this day). It was banned because of the storyline for the video. Which wasthought up by some record executive at Pat Benatar's record company at the time. It's a black and white video and it takes place during World War II and it features American soldiers and German Nazis. With swastikas and everything. It's an OK video (no real violence or anything), but I think it's kind of dumb and boring since the WWII storyline doesn't really pertain to the song at all. The lyrics have nothing to do with and never reference anything having to do with Word War II. I've also heard because of this, and the fact that she felt the video didn't fit her image (it was called a "costume" video) Pat Benatar wasn't very happy with it. And she never again let her record company tell her how one of her videos was going to be done. It was banned by the German government because of the Nazi imagery. The German government (and I dont' blame them) doesn't like anything in the entertainment media that would appear to advocate or promote Nazism or Hitler or any of his ideas. The same thing happened with an episode from Star Trek TOS. For those of you who don't know, that means the original show with Captain Kirk and company. When the show went into reruns around the world, the episode PatternsOf Force was banned in Gemany. It's never been shown there. The episode concernsthe crew of the Enterprise going to a planet with a Nazi worldwide government. It's a pretty dumb episode. Mostly because of the really lame acting. They tried to be humorous with it, but then there's nothing funny about Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
