John Denver

John Denver PMRC Senate Hearings (1985) – Video

“When Denver came up to give his speech, many expected him to side with the PMRC”… “He further compared the PMRC proposals to Nazi book burnings, and expressed his belief that censorship is ultimately counterproductive: “That which is denied becomes that which is most desired, and that which is hidden becomes that which is most interesting.” – Wikipedia

Dee Snider

Dee Snider PMRC Senate Hearing (1985) – Video

“Ms. Gore claimed that one of my songs,“Under the Blade” had lyrics encouraging sadomasochism, bondage, and rape. The lyrics she quoted have absolutely nothing to do with these topics. On the contrary, the words in question are about surgery and the fear that it instills in people… That the writer could misquote me is curious, since we make it a point to print all our lyrics on the inner sleeve of every album. As the creator of ‘Under the Blade,’ I can say categorically that the only sadomasochism, bondage, and rape in this song is in the mind of Ms. Gore.” – Dee Snider

Frank Zappa

Frank Zappa PMRC Senate Hearing (1985) – Video

“…it’s short and I’d like to read it so they will understand. It says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances…”
