This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles".

Aaron Neville from The Neville Brothers; Aaron Neville: Stevedore (cargo handler) on New Orleans, LA, harbor docks
Linda Ronstadt, before Parkinson's disease ruined her own singing career, noted, when Aaron Neville's album "Warm Your Heart," one of whose music producers she also was, that Mr. Neville had never made much money from his recordings. Even when "Tell It Like It Is" was charting, she remarked in an interview for a magazine, Mr. Neville still remained financially unable to resign from "loading coffee onto ships," which was the example Ms. Ronstadt cited.

Song Lawsuits -> Latest Entries
"In da Club," 50 Cent
Former 2 Live Crew manager Joseph Weinberger attempted to sue 50 Cent for the use of the line "it's your birthday", alleging that it was taken off the second track from 2 Live Crew member Luther Campbell's album Freak for Life. Unfortunately for Weinberger, who owned the rights to the rap group's back catalog, the judge ruled in favor of Curtis Jackson, whose use of the "birthday" line was glaringly common and ineligible for copyright. - Submitted By: Queen Elsa of Arendelle
"Let It Go," Idina Menzel

Music With a Warning Label -> Latest Entries
"Gabriel Garza I," Gabriel Garza
On the debut album from this Canadian hip hop artist, a warning is on the front cover: "This album is not for the faint of heart."
Cassie Grandstaff
"Dark & Wild," BTS
On the front album cover, it reads: "WARNING: Love hurts. It causes anger, jealousy, obsession. Why don't u love me back?"
Ariana Naira
"Jazz From Hell," Frank Zappa
In one of perhaps the stupidest examples of prior censorship, "Jazz From Hell" got slapped with an "explicit lyrics" label even though its content is PURELY INSTRUMENTAL!!! That meant it had NO lyrics at ALL. But then, Frank Zappa HATED absolutely EVERYTHING for which the badly-misnamed "Parents's Music Resources Center" stood anyway; one of his later albums was titled "Frank Zappa Meets The Mothers Of PREvention.' His best-remembered musical team, of course, was called "The Mothers Of INvention.'
Parker Gabriel
"Get Up Off Your Knees," Various Artists
The back cover of the CD says "Warning: Much of the content is sexual in nature and may not be suitable for the young and the sensitive."
Robert Jon Brown
"Thriller," Michael Jackson
The title tracks music video reads "Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult'' ~Michael Jackson
Adam
"The Singular Adventures Of ....," Style Council
The inner liner notes of this best-of CD has some kooky story about a "Cappuccino Kid" and his "literature". On the bottom of this page is the proud announcement keeping in tune with the UN sanctions on the apartheid regime of South Africa (this album was put out in 1989): THIS RECORDING IS NOT FOR SALE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Ain't Gonna Play Sun City Either
"Guilty Pleasure," Ashley Tisdale
The CD and back cover contains a FBI Anti-Piracy warning notice which had "FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorized Copying is Punishable Under Federal Law" (like the ones shown on Blu-ray Discs and DVDs currently released by Lions Gate Home Entertainment including Grace Unplugged). But if you try to copy/rip a MP3 file from a CD using a program (or download a MP3 file online) without prior licensing, you'll be punished immediately.
Brandon Reina
"The Great Escape," Blur
In the booklet, there is a picture of Neuschwanstein Castle (the same photo as on the Country House single cover) and underneath this photo it says "Warning: Private Property". This doesn't mean anything as such and is just a quirk in the packaging.
Lee
"Greatest Hits," Devo
The CD itself (not the case) has a picture of someone sticking a fork into a toaster. I figure it's a "what not to do" sort of thing...
GlamRockNinjaLord
"The Last In Line," Dio
Though there are no lyrics in the booklet, the back cover of this album has some lyrics from the title track written in fancy medieval-looking font. "We'll know for the first time, if we're evil or divine. We're the last in line. - RJD"
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Sex (single)," Motley Crue
Motley Crüe's single "Sex", released prior to their 2012 tour with KISS, has a front cover design in the style of and parodying the "Parental Advisory" stickers. The top and bottom of the cover feature the words "Mötley" and "Crüe" respectively, while the middle part just says the word "SEX".
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Invasion Of Your Privacy," Ratt
Ratt's sophomore full-length release got a "Parental Advisory" sticker, due to the title and album cover being references to voyeurism, a topic the PMRC viewed as inappropriate. The sticker has since been removed.
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Full Moon Fever," Tom Petty
On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Mechanical Resonance," Tesla
On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
GlamRockNinjaLord
"Erotica," Madonna
Some of the album covers have Parental Advisory Ratings but everything bad on the CD is probably censored
William
"The Hits (1993 - 2003)," Marty Dread
This reggae hits compilation has the usual "Unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of ..." but it doesn't say "federal copywrite laws". Instead it says that unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of the "King of Kings Jah Rastafari". Honest!
Don't Piss Off Haile Selassie
"As Good As Dead," Local H
On the album's sticker, it reads: "Yeah mom, the 'F Word' is in it", a parody of the explicated lyrics sticker.
S
"Low DVD EP," Foo Fighters
A sticker was added below the usual warning (from the content in the "Low" video that got it banned from MTV) so that it can read "Parental Advisory Warning: Explicit Content ...and also big trucks."
Archie
"eMotive," A Perfect Circle
On the actual CD ( not the case), there is the longest anti-illegal music downloading warning I have ever seen. I'm not even going to bother putting it here, but it's worth seeing if you own the album.
G
"Prisoners In Paradise," Europe
It's a goofy little thing at the end of the lyrics in the CD booklet...Europe will not be held responsible for...then it lists like 4 hilarious effects the music may cause.
