The Filthy Fifteen (Songs)

Will, Kat and Jon discuss current 1980s news including how Stewart Copeland wanted to “choke the life out of” Sting, a new Harrison Ford documentary, and the new trailers for “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” and “The Fall Guy.”

Then, the trio discusses the so-called Filthy Fifteen, the more than a dozen songs targeted by the newly-formed Parents Music Resource Center in 1985 as emblematic of the music that was corrupting the children.
