Wisconsin Mom Fights To Have Song Removed From Faith No More Album
Wendy Moncrief of Wausau, Wisconsin is dead serious about protecting what her 14-year-old daughter Stacia is exposed to. She doesn’t let her watch TV or listen to FM radio. She even goes as far as to monitor her every move on the internet. “Some people may see me as slightly overprotective, but I only want what is best for my daughter. There are too many negative influences in the world these days that didn’t exist when I was growing up in the 80′s” said Mrs. Moncrief.
Everything seemed to be working as planned until she found a cassette copy of Faith No More’s “The Real Thing” along with a few other questionable items in a lockbox under her daughter’s bed. Her first reaction was a bit of personal failure, but then she decided to attempt to mobilize other parents of teenagers by creating a petition to have one very offensive song removed from the album. In her own words:
“The song “Underwater Love” is potentially very dangerous. Yes, I can see it is not new, and the album was released back in 1989. I’ve never heard of it, but it is disgusting. The song is obviously encouraging our children to become mermaids and such, which may sound all cute, until of course your child drowns…then what??? The band was very negligent to children when it wrote this song. I think they should remove it peacefully, or by force if necessary. I’m sure they won’t go quietly. These rock and roll bands are all the same with their drugs and such. Also, anyone with a brain knows that the song “Woodpecker From Mars” is an attempt to brainwash and indoctrinate our kids into becoming mindless robot liberals. You can tell that just by looking at the title.” She rambled off more complaints, but they were just too bizarre to keep up with.
Moncrief so far has 14 signatures. If she gets to 16, we’ll be very surprised. We’ll have more on this story after the indecision ca-louds our vision…
Here is the song in question… does it sound all that dangerous?
