The British Board of Film Classification recently began a programme to give age ratings to music videos after research found more than two thirds (70%) of parents of children under 12 were concerned about exposure to inappropriate content.

Ellie Goulding's song Love Me Like You Do, which featured in the film Fifty Shades of Grey, was rated 15 for strong sex references, as was U2´s Every Breaking Wave, for strong bloody injury detail.
