“Parental Advisory” a.k.a explicit content came in the mid 80s by RIAA which nowadays became a popular term. However, I believe that most of the 70s, 80s and 90s rock and heavy metal songs were actually about sex, drugs and rock n’ roll; which you can see through many bands that had their music videos expressing that in their works such as; Metallica’s Whiskey in the Jar and Scorpions’ Rock You Like A Hurricane. This list is going to focus more on the last decade of music videos. Let’s discover the naked world of rock’n’roll!
Medusa – The Sweetest Elixir
