Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics is the 13th album by American comedian George Carlin. The album is from his seventh HBO special Doin' It Again, with some segments omitted, and others rearranged. The opening to the HBO special features flashbacks to all previous HBO specials. The special opens with a scene in which Carlin is talking about his past specials to an unseen narrator, in the style of a patient speaking to a psychologist or counselor.

Album information[edit]

The title passes as a parental advisory label as well, due to the fact that there is profanity and adult content. A warning in the liner notes to the album reads:

This recording contains no backmasking or subliminal suggestions. All messages from the Devil are recorded clearly and audibly in standard American English.

Another warning states "Please! Try not to commit suicide after listening to this album."

On his November 30, 1989 appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show, Carlin announced the working title for the special as You're All Mentally Ill.
