If you love Rock and Roll music do you feel that some songs are just too much? Has the #MeToo movement found away to ban music without remorse because they feel its offensive?
The #MeToo movement has certainly brought misogynistic behavior to the forefront, but is it too much? We understand the #MeToo movement, but let’s be real, theses days everyone is so “WOKE” the level of hypersensitivity is going through the roof. Its becoming more of a what can we get rid off instead of focusing on the women in need. Here are the songs under fire by #MeToo. Read on for Rock N Roll Songs Affected by #MeToo…
CelebNMusic247.com is a bit taken by this list, because we are NOT offended by Rock songs talking about sex, what about the songs talking about death, suicide, destruction, the devils uprising, the end of the faithful who believe in God?
There is more of that type of Rock and Roll, Hip Hop, EDM, and Pop music infecting the minds of the youth than sex songs these days, but #MeToo is said to be focusing on “music that makes your skin crawl?” But are they?
#MeToo NEEDS to focus on the problem because it’s NOT the music! Just because the #MeToo movement has targeted artists like R Kelly and extension doesn’t mean its an open door to go after Rock Music.
Why Rock N Roll Songs Affected by #MeToo:
The movement NEEDS to seriously reevaluate their standpoint because they become the overzealous religious book and record burners of the 50s and 60s. A movement is great, but when you take that power and cross the line by over-stepping and going to far it becomes a problem. #MeToo NEEDS to stay focused on the target, sex offenders in Hollywood and the music industry.
Here’s the Rock N Roll Songs Affected by #MeToo which have deemed to have offensive lyrical content.
Scorpions – “Don’t Make No Promises” (1980)
Back in the 80s when Rock was still defining itself before the hip-hop movement there were songs that spoke about women. Like this one from the Scorpions, the only problem it was rather meek “padded bra, blonde wig, not much left for me.” Yup, the #MeToo movement has searched this one out from the acrhives.
The Four Tops – “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got”
The Four Tops had everyone fooled with their hit son back in the day as they talked about the perfect women, but halfway into the song after you were hooked they are telling women to “obey” their man. Lyrics in question “I would kiss the ground she walks on, ‘Cause it’s my word, my word she’ll obey, now. Woo-ooh.”
Warrant – “Cherry Pie”
You decided, are these words offensive to you? “swingin’ in there ’cause she wanted me to feed her/so I mixed up the batter and she licked the beater.”
Fountains of Wayne – “Stacy’s Mom”
The song talks abou a boy who wants to sleep with his girlfriends mom. There are tones of men in the world who would love to have a mom and daughter one on one or together. This is the premise of the song.
The Doors – “Touch Me”
Jim Morrison who is long passed away is no being questioned about his opening lyrics to “Touch Me” – “Yeah! Come on, come on, come on, come on…Now touch me, babe”
Nine Inch Nails – “Closer”
You decide, this is one of NIN’s biggest hits talking about the animal in all of us. I want to f**k you like an animal/I want to feel you from the inside/I want to f**k you like an animal/My whole existence is flawed/You get me closer to god.”
Firefall – “Cinderella”
Firefall lyrics read as follows – “Then one mornin’ she came to me/With a tear in her eye and a/Sigh on her breath Lord she said/’Hon I’m heavy with child.” After learning he knocked her up, he responds with “Cinderella can’t you see/Don’t want your company/You better leave this mornin’ leave today/Take your love and your child away.” Basically, kick rocks one-night stand!
Serge Gainsbourg – “Lemon Incest”
This songs lyrics are under fire for not only the lyrics which read “The love we’ll never make together is the rarest, the most troubling, the most pure, the most heady.” It also has to do with Serge shirtless on a bed with his daughter who was disinterested to be laying on a bed with her dad. This song promotes incest so we understand this one.
Aerosmith – “Love In An Elevator”
The bottom line of this song is a woman is there to satisfy a man’s fantasy anywhere anytime like in an elevator. This is the essense of Rock Music, so removing songs that make up the history of what Rock N Roll was built on is crazy. Going after the pedophile types, sex offenders, rapists, and date rape artists. Though, no one is perfect and we’re not saying forcing sex is correct, but all of us have to make better choices. Your favorite star or singers are NOT perfect and if you display you’re ready to do whatever, then you’re already in trouble because that is on you! You opened the door to trouble and allowed it to take advantage of you.
The Beatles – “Getting Better”
You might be saying WTF right about now, but it appears the lyrics “I used to be cruel to my woman/I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved/Man, I was mean but I’m changing my scene/And I’m doing the best that I can (ooh), sung by McCartney.
Ringo Starr – “You’re Sixteen You’re Beautiful (And You’re Mine)”
Yet another Beatles star is under fire for this song. we’re guess it the peodophile aspect, but this is for teenagers NOT grown men to be preditors. This is completely taken out of context.
Nickelback – “Figured You Out”
The lyrics in question – “I like your pants around your feet/And I like the dirt that’s on your knees/And I like the way you say please/While you’re looking up at me/You’re like my favourite damn disease.”
This is just a small list of songs that are in the forefront since the #MeToo movement has decided to go after lyrical content. Parents need to step up and monitor their kids because this breaks the 1st Amendment “Freedom of Speech.”
