I have been bursting with frustration about this for years and it is only today that I have discovered this website and forum so I apologise if this has already been discussed.
In a long-forgotten episode of QI a discussion arose about the Judas Priest song that was alleged to have masked vocals saying "Do it! Do it!" that resulted in the suicide of two young American men.
Mr. Jupitus proclaimed loudly that the song was called "Suicide Solution" and this proclamation brought an end to the discussion at that time.
Unfortunately, Mr. Jupitus was a little tiny bit in error.
"Suicide Solution" is a song by Ozzy Osbourne and can be found on his album "Blizzard of Ozz."
I believe that the Judas Priest song was "Better By You, Better Than Me" from the album "Stained Class" - a song that the band hadn't even written (it is an old Spooky Tooth song).
I hope David Mitchell reads this forum. I'm sure it would warm the cockles of his heart having had his own show lampooned by Mr. Fry in another long forgotten episode.

Hi Rob and welcome to the forums. I'd like to think that David Mitchell reads this forum, but if so he's been quiet about it all these years.

Thank you both very much for the responses. It seems that I, too, have fallen foul of the klaxons and the ten point deduction. I'll just go and stand in a corner for a little while...
