Abstract:

"From ancient Rome through the 1980s "Explicit Lyrics" labeling crusade and on to the infamous Taliban regime, repressive governments and self-appointed moral guardians have sought to limit musical expression. In this ode to scandal, Peter Blecha recounts the travails of musicians who have dared to air "unacceptable" topics. Filled with several centuries' worth of raunchy sex ditties, morbid murder ballads, blasphemous satanic songs, paeans to intoxicating substances, and radical political anthems, Taboo Tunes lays the censors' stories bare." "Taboo Tunes casts a spotlight on current concerns over civil liberties and artistic freedom in the post-9/11 world."--Jacket.
