We have a look at five music videos that broadcasters judged as too shocking to show or play.
David Cameron has spoken out against bad language in pop music and Miley Cyrus' twerking antics, in an intimate interview about his family life.
Speaking to The Mail on Sunday, the prime minister said that although his own children aren't aware of Miley Cyrus' transformation from "lovely" Disney star Hannah Montana to controversial pop princess, they have picked up on swearing in pop hits.
He revealed that Nancy, nine, Elwen, seven, and Florence, three, are banned from having video games, mobile phones or tablets and from watching TV on weekend mornings.
"My children are too young. Luckily they haven't connected this lovely Hannah Montana, who is now this person twerking," he said.
But he had not been able to protect his children from some of the bad language in modern music, although he acknowledged he sometimes swore too.
"They say, 'Daddy, that's the bad this or that word'. They are very conscious of that and they don't approve of swearing," he said.
"They are quite right - the artists are wrong to swear, although I can't say I totally live by those rules myself."
Miley Cyrus has taken out the award for Best Video for her UK chart-topping hit Wrecking Ball.
Miley Cyrus has arrived at the 2013 MTV Europe Music Awards in a backless mini-dress that was an apparent homage to late rappers Tupac and Notorious BIG.
The 19-year-old former Hannah Montana star's dress emblazoned the words 'Please Stop Violence'.
British Songstress Ellie Goulding also flashed some flesh in a black lace Dolce and Gabbana dress, while US singer Katy Perry arrived at the Ziggo Dome in a more demure mint green dress.
Explicit music videos should be made available to the public in a responsible age-appropriate way but should not be banned completely, Gennaro Castaldo of the British Recorded Music Industry told ITV News.
"We have been speaking to digital service providers about whether they could introduce age-based filters. That could be one way of solving this problem," Mr Castaldo said.
"Rather than trying to stop content by banning or censoring it, it’s about how to make it available in a responsible fashion."
Mr Castaldo said the industry takes the issue extremely seriously, but pointed out that "values move" on and that "back in the 50s, people were scandalised by Elvis Presley."
A group of 12-14 year olds have criticised sexually suggestive music videos, calling one Rihanna promo "a bit disturbing" and accusing Miley Cyrus of teaching young kids to twerk.
Pharrell and Robin Thicke's pre-watershed version of the "Blurred Lines" video also came under fire from the group for portraying women as "easy" and "having no self-respect".
