RT @anthonyLfisher: 35 years ago today, a Senate committee held hearings — on behalf of a group formed by several of those senators' wives — about "porn rock" lyrics supposedly poisoning the minds of America's youth. It was a First Amendment showdown for the ages. https://t.co/ttCdtA99v5

In 1985 the Senate held hearings on "rock porn." Just three musicians stood up to the government to say "it's none of your business."
