On the surface, 2 Live Crew was always more about partying than politics. But after Floridian parents groups pushed to have As Nasty As They Wanna Be deemed obscene—which resulted in the arrests of the group (after a performance) and a local record store owner—the Crew was fed up. "Banned In The USA" found them at their most political, flipping Bruce Springsteen into a rousing defense of the First Amendment.
