Power ballad- Home sweet home was early[85] but Still loving you[84] was one of the first. Why was this overlooked? Another missed fact, PMRC-Al Gore's wife, Tipper. The show talks about the big bad evil *conservatives*- this is pure BS. It was the democrats, liberals and leftists that ran that group of hags and the democrat congressional censorship board. Deliberate misinformation by liberals that created the show? The only censor loving republican involved was Bill Bennet, a former democrat turned republican and he's a class A hypocrite. If you look at the facts, it was democrats that pushed for censorship in music led by Gore and Rockerfeller, hypocritical crooks like TV evangelists like Jerry Falwell or Pat Robertson tarnish the right. Being a lifelong Catholic and a 30 year metal head, I've never had a priest give me crap about my musical taste. Protestants preachers don't seem to know that Rob Zombie is a musical horror show and not the devil. This part of the show always has me change the channel-there are no facts to back up-conservatives always go after heavy metal. Anyway that's my 2 cents-other than that, I always watch the show when it's on.
