Billy Idol, ‘Cradle of Love’ – Banned Music Videos

Billy Idol
YouTube

There’s no doubt that Billy Idol‘s ‘Cradle of Love’ was a steamy video with a seemingly innocent young woman doing her best seduction routine on an older businessman, but it wasn’t the sexual content or age differential that set off the warning signs for MTV. Rather, it was the insertion of film clips from ‘The Adventures of Ford Fairlane’ that had the network initially balking.

The movie starred comedian Andrew Dice Clay, whose “adult nursery rhymes” routine at the MTV Awards in 1989 earned him a lifetime ban from the network. Rather than risk not being played on the popular music video network, a new cut minus the Dice Clay movie scenes was presented for MTV and allowed to air.
