Members of Mexico's National Action Party have proposed legislation that would make "drug ballads," or "narcocorridos," as they are commonly referred by Mexicans, illegal.
Violators of the law could face up to three years in prison if they perform or produce the music.
And we thought Tipper Gore and her warning labels stifled free speech.
"Drug ballads" are songs that glorify a wide variety of different illegal activities -- including drug or human trafficking and illegal immigration -- that Mexico, and in turn the U.S., have been grappling with for decades. It's a little edgier and frankly, much more creative than screaming "fuck the police" over and over again into a microphone.
