I think we've all turned into sheep because of stupid warning stickers and music banning. When's the last time you heard of a sheep playing killer guitar or writing great classic rock songs? Exactly. Sheep eat grass all day and do what they're told. Baaa Baa.

Brain Police? That's a song from Frank Zappa and he is quoted as saying it was a religious song. So that's my answer. Fundamentalist religious groups -- and very bored Senator's wives -- have killed all the great music.

It's nearly 30 years since we've seen a great rock band emerge and about thirty years since this backmasking law was passed -- when the the fear of Satan in music was given so much media spotlight. Is it no coincidence then - that this is about how long it takes for a new generation to emerge? This type of censorship has clearly killed the creativity and free thinking of today's 20 and 30 somethings.

The brain police are everywhere ... I see and hear them everyday. Buy me, eat me, have sex with kind of advertising is killing my brain cells. Help me. Help me. My brain is shrivelling up like a raisin.

Good question. I don't know what to think anymore or who to trust. I'm 15 and I'm more grown up than most of the adults I know. Grow up!!! Stop trying to be teenagers all your life. It's your brain so nobody can really police it except you.
