Celebrities Who Sing -> Latest Entries

Chicago Bears performed: Super Bowl Shuffle
The Chicago Bears went on to win Super Bowl XX. They made a 10 minute + song and video where ALL of the team players go to a mike, one at a time and do a little rapping. There are choruses sung by all but this song is like a motorcycle with stripped gears. It makes a lot of noise but you ain't going anywhere. This song is a lame, banal, dragged out, washed out piece of Special High Intensity Training. It is deep-sixed right from the start.

Patti Smith from Patti Smith: Toy factory worker
Patti Smith used to work in a toy factory, fixing boxes and testing toys. She didn’t seem to have had the best time there: “The stuff those women did to me in that factory was horrible. They’d gang up on me and stick my head in a toilet full of piss!”

Song Lawsuits -> Latest Entries
"Revolution," The Beatles
In 1987, "Revolution" became the first Beatles recording to be licensed for use in a television commercial. Nike paid $500,000 for the right to use the song for one year, split between recording owner Capitol-EMI and song publisher ATV Music Publishing (owned by Michael Jackson). Commercials using the song started airing in March 1987.

The three surviving Beatles, through their record company Apple, filed in July 1987 objecting to Nike's use of the song. The suit was aimed at Nike, its advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, and Capitol-EMI Records. Capitol-EMI said the lawsuit was groundless because they had licensed the use of "Revolution" with the "active support and encouragement of Yoko Ono Lennon, a shareholder and director of Apple." Ono had expressed approval when the commercial was released, saying the commercial "is making John's music accessible to a new generation".

The "Revolution" lawsuit and others involving the Beatles and EMI were settled out of court in 1989, with the terms kept secret. The financial website included the Nike "Revolution" advertisement campaigh in its list of the 100 key business events of the 20th century, as it helped "commodify dissent".

"Best I Ever Had," Drake
In a lawsuit filed June 24th, 2010, Playboy Enterprises sued Drake for copyright infringement by over alligations that his breakout smash "Best I Ever Had" sampled "Fallin' in Love" by Hamilton Joe, Frank & Reynolds, without attribution or permission.

The suit names Drake, as well as Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group, and asserts that Playboy "has suffered, and will continue to suffer irreparable injury" from the alleged infringement. The lawsuit demands that "all infringing works be recalled and destroyed."

As part of its claim, Playboy also alleges that "each defendant either knew, or should have reasonably known, that the sound recording was protected by copyright." Source: - Submitted By: Isac

Hidden Tracks -> Latest Entries
"Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)," Raspberries. On the LP, after the end of the song, you can hear five or six seconds of the opening guitar power chords of Raspberries' song "Go All The Way" but it is very low and almost obscured by record surface noise. This is not on their CD however. - Submitted By: Greg Hulak
"Untitled," Trapt. On their self-titled album, it starts immediately after "New Beginning" and segues pretty much seamlessly from that track. - Submitted By: Danny Hates Dubstep

Backwards Messages -> Latest Entries
"Secret Messages," Electric Light Orchestra: "This song has a secret message that basically says, "What are you looking for? Turn the needle back and play this thing forward." ELO has made several backwards messages on their previous albums (none of them the rumored 'Christ infernal' message - it was never made), and the 1983 'Secret Messages' is peppered with just that. Other messages on this LP include counting numbers, cheering for the Birmingham Bluebirds Football (Soccer) Club, marching chants and a shout of BEATLES FOREVER! Not very Satanic, is it?

"Paranoid," Black Sabbath: "When the lyric that goes "Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry" is played backwards, you can hear what sounds like "Is that you I saw dancing with the devil"" - Submitted By: James D

Lead singer getting murdered - The Gits

Music With a Warning Label -> Latest Entries
"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.
"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...
"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"
"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".
"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.
"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."
"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."
"Erotica," Madonna
Some of the album covers have Parental Advisory Ratings but everything bad on the CD is probably censored
"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.
"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."
"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.
"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.
"Broken," Nine Inch Nails
In the liner notes, there is a warning reading, "Caution: Not for use with mono devices." The reason for this being is that Trent stated the songs do not sound right when being played through mono devices.
eg: Mike Smith
"Amnesiac," Radiohead
The back cover says "Radiohead. Amnesiac. Store away from direct sunlight, preferably in a dark drawer with your secrets. See inside for details."
"Live Era '87-'93," Guns N' Roses
Look very closely at the cover, just below the 2nd poster on the top row. It says "Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Hollywood Rose Is Bad For Your Health (but worth the risk)". You might need a big LP to see it because the writing is very small.
"Primitive Enema," Butt Trumpet
This is what the lyric sheet says concerning the lyrics to "The Grindcore Song": We've decided not to give you the lyrics to this song because we are sure they would entice you to do nasty things to yourself and to others and we don't wish to be held responsible for it. Hail Satan.
F*ck the PMRC
"Tin Machine II," Tin Machine
The second album from David Bowie's hard rock band Tin Machine was released in 1991. The cover art has 4 ancient Greek statues, of NUDE men (oh no). The morals of our Grand Republic were saved and for the U.S. release the genetilia of the statues were "airbrushed" off. They did a lousy job - it looks more the statues had their ding dongs torn off. Oh but the morality police saved the day again (NOT).
Ain't That America? Home Of the Free
"Muscle Of Love," Alice Cooper
The cover says "Attention: This Carton Contains (1) Alice Cooper Muscle of Love" and also says "Fragile".
