With so many rap songs having explicit lyrics, which cinema-style age ratings would each UK No.1 single be given based on lyrical content?

Al Martino - Here In My Heart is quite explicit at points (“I need your love so badly” - wow, easy tiger!) so possibly a 12A for that.

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody is as violent as a Tarantino film (killing a man, spitting in someone’s eye etc) so an easy 18.

Aqua - Barbie Girl is a 15 at least due to the “Undress me everywhere” line and some explicit references to hanky panky, to name just a few.

And Eamon - F*** It (I Don’t Want You Back) was mostly bought by and enjoyed by people with the minds of children so that can have a U rating.

Little Mix - Black Magic is an 18 for its subject matter.

Not a number 1 single but "The Bad Touch" by the Bloodhound Gang would need an X-rating!

"Stan" by Eminem would be 18 due to...85% of the lyrics?

Most #1s these days would be a 15 at the least besides charity releases laugh.gif

Even Ariana who’s got quite a young audience wouldn’t really be suited to kids with chart toppers like thank u, next break up with your gf I’m bored and positions laugh.gif
