Three decades after W.A.S.P., Vanity, Judas Priest, Prince, Madonna and others shocked Tipper Gore and her committee, Rolling Stone takes a critical look at 1985's worst of the worst.
In the past year, Tove Lo's hit "Talking Body" found her singing, "We fuck for life," Big Sean got on the radio with "I Don't Fuck With You" and Macklemore's "Thrift Shop," in which he raps about purchasing a blanket with the sole intention of ejaculating on it, continues to get airplay.

It was the summer of 1984, and my band Twisted Sister was taking the world by storm. With our angst-filled teen anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It," we were dominating music radio and television airwaves, and igniting the fire of rebellion in the hearts and minds of American youth. As we rode in our tour bus from town to town, playing show after show, little did we realize that a cultural guillotine awaited us.
