Banned Country Songs – Loretta Lynn, ‘The Pill’
Loretta Lynn's song about the birth control pill upset conservative country music fans in the mid-70s. People wrote a story of a Kentucky preacher who denounced the song, which of course made it extremely popular. "Miniskirts, hotpants and a few little fancy frills / Yeah I'm making up for all those years since I've got the pill," Lynn sings, playing the wife in a song from a wife to a husband. Despite being banned on many radio stations, 'The Pill' became a Top 5 hit in 1975.
