When I first began streaming retro music videos on the show, I decided there should also be a set of just new releases as well, hence how this 2021 collection came to be. (It is a tradition I will keep moving forward, I’ve decided, so look for the new 2022 block starting up soon!)
Re-visit the 1980’s Satanic Panic with various era relevant media clips & see the music videos accused of being too explicit for society- deemed “The Filthy 15 List” by the PMRC, who tried and failed to have them censored
In the mid 80’s, a group of women (consisting mostly of US senator’s wives) attempted to (unsuccessfully) wage war against heavy metal & pop music.
They made a list of 15 songs (“The Filthy 15”) deemed inappropriate for society’s consumption, mostly based upon their own dimwitted interpretations of what they believed the songs to be about, to use as a weapon in their war against freedom of speech in the arts/music.
The Filthy 15 List
1. Prince – Darling Nikki: Sex/masturbation
2 Sheena Easton – Sugar Walls: Sex
3 Judas Priest – Eat Me Alive: Sex/violence
4 Vanity – Strap On ‘Robbie Baby’: Sex
5 Mötley Crüe – Bastard: Violence/language
6 AC/DC – Let Me Put My Love Into You: Sex
7 Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It: Violence
8 Madonna – Dress You Up: Sex
9 W.A.S.P. – Animal (Fuck Like a Beast): Sex/language/violence
10 Def Leppard – High ‘n’ Dry (Saturday Night): Drug and alcohol use
11 Mercyful Fate – Into the Coven: Occult
12 Black Sabbath – Trashed: Drug and alcohol use
13 Mary Jane Girls – In My House: Sex
14 Venom – Possessed: Occult
15 Cyndi Lauper – She Bop: Sex/masturbation
Artists of all genres, whether personally attacked or not, came out to defend against these attacks. It was quite a delightful spectacle- and a successful one at that (fortunately)!
Dee Snider of Twisted Sister blows minds at the 1985 PMRC Senate Hearings.
You can watch on a browser without downloading the app, and you don’t have to be a Twitch member to watch the show, but I do recommend signing up for Twitch (it’s free) for access to all interactive features!

Even without spending points, there are countless ways you can interact and engage with the show, as well as easily earn points to spend for free , just by watching or even for merely showing up!
A playlist of music videos and media I created to entertain fellow Satanists attending The Satanic Temple Virtual HQ (tstvhq.com), at their virtual estate, which opens its doors every Satanic holiday.
Features: TST & Lucien Greaves created & related media, music videos from TST member projects (Satanic Planet, William Morrison, Scar Eater, etc) & random music videos that are spooky, bad-ass, blasphemous, Satanic or just weird AF (or all of the above)
This was one of my first Whimsical Blasphemy Show music video playlists. It began in October 2020, the first time I D/VJed at TSTVHQ and has been replayed, expanded upon and re-arranged since then, and will likely continue to be, so keep checking back to see new additions!

I went and made this Thursday’s music video block theme be: THE 90’S. Come see what the last of Gen X’s latch key kids and baby Millennials were subjected to in the age where putting CYBER before everything seemed futuristic and cool.
