Before Harvard, there was 2 Live Crew.
The hip-hop group hit the spotlight in 1989 with its album As Nasty As They Wanna Be, which included the single Me So Horny. Nick Navarro , the sheriff of Floridas Broward County , thought it went too far.
Im a freak in heat, a dog without warning, the rappers sang. My appetite is sex, cause me so horny.
U.S. District Judge Jose Gonzalez agreed with Navarro that the song was obscene, and 2 Live Crew appealed.

Me love you long time...
She only wants to censor political speech.
That would be a first then.

I wonder what was going on in her mind as she read these explicit, graphic lyrics of the song. The mind boggles.
So she, or her firm anyway, was hired by a client and she had the absolute gall to forcefully and zealously assert the client’s position in a legal brief. Oh, the horror!
I had a crush on that girl... Wow.

That doesn’t make her John Adams
Frank Sinatra: Issue number one: Censorship. They got the records with the labels now, people getting arrested. What the hell’s going on? Sine-aid O’Conner!
Sinead O’Connor: Well, I thnk it’s a bloody shame that freedom of expression is suppressed in this country..
Frank Sinatra: Yap, yap, yap! Billy Idol!
Billy Idol: I think they’re all a bunch of tight-assed old farts.
Frank Sinatra: Get a haircut. Luther Campbell!
Luther Campbell: Well, man I had my run-ins with censorship all year.
Frank Sinatra: Can’t understand a word.
Luther Campbell: I said I was censored all year.
Frank Sinatra: You don’t know what censored is, junior. Censored is being dumped by Columbia because Mitch Miller doesn’t like the way your career is going. It’s having million-dollar pipes and nowhere to play ‘em. Am I right, Steve and Eydie?
Steve Lawrence: Yes, you are, Frank.
Eydie Gorme: Absolutely, Frank.
Frank Sinatra: You bet I am. Next issue: this crap with M-TV. With the nudity and all. What is this crap? Sinbad O’Connor.
Sinead O’Connor: Well, I think it’s bloody awful. But it’s typical of entertainment in a male-dominated society.
Frank Sinatra: Boo-hoo! You had me, and then you lost me! Billy Idol.
Billy Idol: I think it’s great.
Frank Sinatra: Shut up! Luther Campbell.
Luther Campbell: Well, that’s my bread and butter, man.
Frank Sinatra: Once more around, pal. Sounds like pops and buzzes from here.
Luther Campbell: I said, that’s my bread and butter, man.
Frank Sinatra: No, you’re wrong, schoolboy. You don’t need to work blue! You’ll never play the big rooms with that crap. Ask Redd Foxx. You don’t need the blue stuff, kid, you got talent!
Luther Campbell: But I don’t have talent.
Frank Sinatra: You’ve got it, kid. You listen to me - you’ve got a Ben Vereen quality, I can’t put my finger on it. Take the high road, baby!
Luther Campbell: I swear, man, I don’t have any talent. None! This is all I got. [ to Billy Idol ] Tell him, man.
Billy Idol: Yeah, he sucks!
Sinead O’Connor: He’s not talented.
Frank Sinatra: No, Bob Goulet - that’s not talented! You got talent! You got a Dionne Warwick/Falana kind of thing going. Steve and Eydie?
Eydie Gorme: Oh, you’re right, Frank.
Steve Lawrence: Absolutely. He’s great!
Here is the video (uncensored)
The original version of this song is SUPER NASTY. The version released for radio at the time is tame in comparison. Just mentioned this for those who may not know and might think there is only one version.
Oh man, watch the senate committee members ask her to read the lyrics out loud to that song and then defend it on c span. .... HAHAHAHAHA popcorn time....
“I wonder what was going on in her mind as she read these explicit, graphic lyrics of the song. The mind boggles.”
Probably trying to figure out how to work them into the conversation with her next “significant other.”
These guys sold “we want some p**sy” t shirts and embroidered golf apparel. Where can you wear a shirt like that in public?
Classic movie ! I felt sorry for Pvt. Pyle but also felt he brought it upon himself.
Ever been to “the hood”? I live here and nothing suprises me about what people will wear.
