2 Live Crew - "Banned in the USA"

Miami’s 2 Live Crew lived up to their name, proving to be "too live" for Florida Governor Bob Martinez, who deemed their third album, 1989‘s Nasty as They Wanna Be, as being too obscene for parental advisory stickers. Ultimately the judge’s ruling was overturned and 2 Live Crew’s First Amendment rights were upheld, which resulted in a follow-up album, Banned in the U.S.A., with the title track championing free speech and other songs that expressed that right, including “F--- Martinez” and “Face Down, A-- Up.”
