The album I am holding up in front of you is by the band Metalica [sic].
It is on Electra [sic] Asylum records. A song on this album is called
"Faith in Black" ["Fade to Black"]. It says the following. "I have lost the will to live.
Simply nothing more to give. There is nothing more for me. I need
the end to set me free."
"Death greets me warm. I will just say good-bye."
Consider the self-destructive violence that is encouraged in their song "Whiplash." "Bang your head against the stage like you never have before. Make it rain, make it bleed, make it really sore. In a frenzied madness, now is the time to let it rip, to let it fucking loose. We are gathered here to maim and kill, for this is what we choose."
Ozzie [sic] Osbourne on his first solo album, shown here, sings a song called "Suicide Solution." Ozzie [sic] insists that he in no way encourages suicidal behavior in young people, and yet he appears in photographs such as these in periodicals that are geared toward the young teenage audience.
For those of you who cannot make that out because of the lights, it is a picture of Ozzie [sic] with a gun barrel stuck into his mouth.
This is the cover of Twisted Sister's high selling LP for Atlantic Records called "Stay Hungry." An example of Twisted Sister's appeal to young people is evident in the back to school contest being run by MTV. First prize is a get together with Twisted Sister. The first prize is a meeting with Twisted Sister.
The hit song from the album, "We're Not Going to Take It," was released as a video, which you saw just a moment ago, a video in which the band members proceed to beat up daddy, who will not let them rock. Their first album, which has been rereleased [sic?] by Atlantic Records, is called "Under the Blade."
The title song includes words like "Your hands are tied, your legs are strapped, you are going under the blade." In lyrics from the song "Shoot them Down," the band sings, "They think we are fools who want to make their own rules. It only gets us madder. They think they are hot. Well, I say they're not. They shoot us down for fun. If they don't want to play, then let's make them pay. Shoot them down with a fucking gun."
This is the cover of AC/DC's brandnew [sic] album for Atlantic Records, "Fly on the Wall."
One of the songs from the album "Back in Business" was released as a single for airplay and included the words, "Don't you struggle or try to bite. You want some trouble. I am the king of vice. I am a wrecking ball. I am a stinging knife. Steal your money. Going to take your life."
Of course, AC/DC is no stranger to violent material. Their song "Squealer" contained the following. "She said she had never been balled before, and I don't think she'll ball no more. Fixed her good."
One of their fans I know you are aware of is the accused Night Stalker.
Judas Priest sings of violent rape in their song "Eat Me Alive" from their Columbia Records released [sic] "Defenders of the Faith." "Squealing in passion as the rod of steel injects. Gut wrenching frenzy that deranges every joint. I am going to force you at gunpoint to eat me alive."
