10 Rock Bands That Got Banned For Stupid Reasons

Making a Mockery of "The Devil's Music."

RCA

Rock music has never been the easiest of genres for the mainstream public to digest. Hell, as far back as the '50s, there were many uptight adults questioning the effect that this type of music actually has on your sanity. Gross assumptions aside, there are a few times when those preconceived notions of rock music get a little too ridiculous.

Across every single subgenre of rock music, there have been people more than willing to put a stop to these long-haired lowlifes with guitars. Though you could see why they might have concerns, the idea of actually banning these artists for nothing more than delivering their art starts to get a little questionable after a while. Then again, these people forget the one great thing about rock and roll. The more parents hate, the more their children are going to want to check it out.

No matter how hard they might have tried, each of these artists have found their way to the other side without having to compromise any of their artistic visions. They may have been pushing the boundaries of what was okay at the time, but when you look back on it, the objectors start to look more and more out of touch as the years go by.
