This is by no mean a definitive list, but these albums are worth revisiting
In the last few years, Vinyl has experienced a massive resurgence.
It accounted for 9.7 million album sales in 2018, thanks, begrudgingly, to what NPR called the "Hipsterfication of America." While the sales can mainly be attributed to classics like Michael Jackson's Thriller and The Beatles' Abbey Road, it seems fitting to pay homage to the records that gave us Millennial's a "thunder down under" and kickstarted our sexual awakenings.
The racy nature of the album covers below sparked cultural phenomenons. Let's dive into the birth of the "Parental Warning" and revisit the album that turned whipped cream from a mere dessert topping into something much more. These are some of the most risque records in history.
2 Live Crew, “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” (1989)
2 Live Crew's third album served as the first album ever to be deemed "legally obscene" and sparked the initial discussions surrounding the "Parental Warning" label. With singles like "Me So Horny" and "The F*ck Shop," it came as no surprise when the album was deemed illegal in certain counties in Florida. But the arrest of the Crew came as a shock, with the band members being put on trial after performing some of the project's tracks at a local sex club. They were eventually acquitted.
