Random question. I was just re-listening to RATM's self-titled album and I realized how great it is. But my question is, why doesn't it have a parental advisory sticker on it? I've heard a ton of CD's with a lot fewer f-words and such that have gotten a sticker (for example, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Californication, though the one I have doesn't have a sticker, I've seen some at the store that do). I'm not one of those whiny fourteen year olds that think that people should take out all the swearing in their music, I'm just asking a simple question.

I thinks it's cause the CD is from the days when they didn't really have that sticker. (The 90's right? sry I dont know my RATM). Cuz like Dookie for example doesn't have one either.

I think you could be right.

Oh wait, I mis-read why doesn't it have a sticker as why does it have a sticker, maaaaaaaaainly because my copy of that cd DOES infact have a warning sticker on it... so yeah.

Lawl. This post is cleverer than you'd think on first inspection.

RATM were pre-Parental Advisory stickers.
Read up on their Wikipedia site, It shows how they protested it when it first came in too.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

Prince was the first person to get the sticker

Maybe you took the sticker off and forgot about it?

And as for Zapatista, my copy of BSSM didn't have a sticker on, if I remember correctly... Nice name by the way.

I checked Wikipedia. It said that it's the label's choice to either put a sticker on an album or not. And it gave examples of other albums that either had a lot of "explicit content" that didn't get a sticker or didn't have almost any and got it

+1. Wikipedia is our friend if it gives proof.
