November 1, 1985

On this day in 1985, The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) agreed to some demands made by another initialed organization, the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC). As a result, any album considered to contain offensive lyrics must be issued with a warning label, or the lyrics must be printed on the sleeve. Most record companies comply with the labels, which don’t seem to hurt sales.
