As an adult, I often wonder about the crap out there they call music. It’s easy to forget about the crap we called music back when we were teenagers. Some of those songs we listened to were absolutely ridiculous, and I hope that my kids never subject themselves to such drivel. (Wishful thinking, I know.)
 
So here are a few of those interesting songs we listened to as kids.
 
(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party) by the Beastie Boys – I get a kick out of this song, and it’s easy to sing along to it even now. I wasn’t a BB fan, but still like this one.
 


 
But now we’re going to the bottom of the barrel. :)
 

Me So Horny by 2 Live Crew – I never had any of their cassettes, but some of my friends did. And we’d listen to it while driving around in the car. Because I’m pretty sure that none of them listened to it in front of their parents.
 
All I can say now about this song is, is why… why… why… Surprisingly the video isn’t that graphic—compared to today’s standards, but be warned… the lyrics are.

Cherry Pie by Warrant – At least Warrant isn’t quite in your face as Two Live Crew. Gotta love their innuendo. Or maybe not. I will admit, the song has a good beat.
 


 
What are your (musical) youthful indiscretions?

  1. Oh yeah, there were some songs that were not listened to in front of parents or any other adults. Ah, I was such a rebel. :)

  2. My hubby pulled up Tesla (the band) and played one of their songs, and we both just looked at each other. I don’t think some things can qualify as music. Period. I was pretty conservative in my music tastes, holding mostly to rock, musical theater, new age, or orchestral stuff. I LOVE when you get a hybrid of these–like classics in electronic rock style. That stuff is amazing.

    Oh gosh, the music from my youth was way more ridiculous! Barbie Girl, Blue (Da Ba Dee Da Ba Da), Witch Doctor… oh man, the list is so long!

    Not that I really listened to it, but what was the production company thinking when they produced the song I Touch Myself by Divinyls? Seriously?

  5. I secretly bought a George Michael CD because I knew my parents would NOT let me have anything with a song called “I Want Your Sex” on it.

  6. I’m sure I listened to a lot of crap when I was younger but I can’t think of a specific song. I remember going through a Nirvana and Hole stage, a Metallica and Smashing Pumpkins stage, and then a country stage. My music tastes were all over the place (still are).
