Hi Shadow Of A Doubt:
Hope you are well. It is completely understood that some lyrics would bother even the most open-minded people, but I like the choice going to the family and not the record company.
If a parent feels that some heavy metal or rap lyrics aren'r right for their child of 14, the law says it is their right to belive that.
I rather the parent make the decision then the record company. Once the person is 18, let them make up their own mind.
One danger with censorship that often is overlooked is when a record company or a person that has no clue what the song means decides to tell the wrong story to the public. The most famous case was during the hearings we had in the USA in the 1980's a song by Twisted Sister-Under The Blade was put on the horrible evil terrible destoy the world list. Slight problem though, it was about a member having surgery.
So much right or wrong comes from a good home. I listen to this day from Beatles to Zappa, Airplane to ELP, Cream to Yardbirds and never used drugs, I don't smoke or drink.
All be well and have a great weeeeeeekendddddd,
