2 Live Crew vs. Everybody

2 Live Crew's raunchy music ran afoul of several local Florida officials. In response to a suit from the Broward County sheriff, their album, 1989's Nasty As They Wanna Be, was ruled obscene and therefore illegal to sell by a U.S. District Court. They were arrested when they performed defiantly at a local club, but were acquitted later in a high-profile trial.
