The other day I was in the bathroom, putting on my face and such. I had my tunes blasting away. At this particular moment, Sex and Violence by the Exploited was on. When Grace came round the corner, I scrambled to skip the song, not wanting her to hear it. I was kind of upset with myself for playing it when the kids were around. I've certainly censored what I listen to when with the girls - some themes are just way too mature for them and I don't feel ready to explain certain lyrics to them just yet. The minivan is primarly a Clash, Ramones and Blondie ride. Sometimes Social Distortion when I'm feeling a little saucy.
I got to thinking though, is this:
really any worse than this?:
I think the latter is so manipulative and sneaky...it drives me nuts that this music is marketed towards kids.
Give the Exploited a listen - lyrics aside, it's a catchy, catchy tune!
