Feature: 7 Music Videos That Broke Taboo

Is anything scared in the realm of popular music? When something is deemed to be under taboo it takes on a status that is seemingly beyond moral reproach; unbreakable by any upstanding member of society. But when something is given this status, it also becomes a target for artists who take it upon themselves to challenge conventional thought (or, you know, just shock people). It is for this reason that taboo topics provide some of the most intriguing insights into the various attitudes within society.

Live Review: Dave Grohl's Sound City Players ft. John Fogerty, Lee Ving, Krist Novaselic and more... - Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles (05.03.13)

It was by pure coincidence that I found myself arriving in Los Angeles on the same day that Dave Grohl's Sound City Players shut down part of Hollywood Blvd - a privilege normally reserved for a film shoot or the Oscars - to put on a massive, free concert for competition winners and those lucky enough to grab a ticket on the website 1iota. I was in the latter category and the night was something of a mixed blessing. The music was incredible, sure - you definitely don't get to see musicians of this calibre play together like this very often! - but the context of it all - as well as my location miles away from the stage - may have perhaps spoiled some of the charm of the anticipated performance at SXSW, which I'll hopefully catch next week.
