When you think about the media challenges that parents face in this day and age, it almost makes the 80′s look like Sunday School. If you pick up the iPod of anyone under the age of 18 you are likely to find tunes from Weezy, Gaga, Skrillex, Odd Future and Black Veil Brides. When it comes to television, the biggest shows involve reality shows that promote promiscuous dating and a group of sisters who are famous for nothing. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the internet.

In 1986, television was filled with family-friendly sitcoms that tackled the “real” issues (like lying and being teased, lol) in wholesome 30 minute doses, and the internet wasn’t even around yet. So why were parents so freaked out in 1986? You may laugh, but a clip from a very early episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show featured a full-on panel discussion about the dangers of teenaged kids listening to the reckless lyrics of The Beastie Boys.

The most ironic part about this video clip is that Tipper Gore is seemingly the leader of the anti-Beastie Boys campaign and the wife of the man who supposedly “created the internet.”
