Janie’s got a gun

Remember when M-TV actually showed music videos?  Can you believe this one was banned by the channel due to “graphic depiction” of incest?  WTF?  It’s called suggestion people.  Do they even know what shit they have on their channel now?

This video was made during an era when music videos were actually kind of entertaining and most of them tried to convey the message of the song.  This one definitely did that for me.  Unfortunately it’s a time forgotten.

I heard this song on the way to work and was struck once again by the crystal clear, unfiltered, in-your-face, what-ar-u-gonna-do-about-it message on child abuse.

Speak.  Listen.  Act.

    I didn’t watch a lot of MTV then, or now, but this one is classic with or without a video.
