X-Rated: The Pop Videos They Tried to Ban
14 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a programme narrated by Alexander Armstrong to find the most provocative X-Rated Pop Video ever created to shock, scare, fantasise and nearly got banned. It includes videos from Marilyn Manson, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Aphex Twin, Duran Duran, The Prodigy, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and the most x-rated video stars, Rock Bitch. There are many things that can make an x-rated pop video that are included: death, blood, violence, suicide, vomiting, drugs, strippers, nudity, sex, lesbians, orgies, ageist behaviour, blasphemy, and much more. With interviews by Alice Cooper, Jack Osbourne, Mike Read, the late Tommy Vance and Gina Yashere. Very good!
