You Gotta Fight the Powers that Be!

Okay, so Elvis Costello doesn't have quite the stone cold gangsta appeal of a Chuck D, but you gotta love the huevos of him changing songs while live on SNL, which caused him to be banned from NBC for 12 years or so. They had wanted him to play "Less than Zero," but to their surprise, Elvis wanted to play "Radio Radio," as you see below. Enjoy a great TV moment. Heart you, Elvis!

"And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools /tryin' to anaesthetize the way that you feel."

Can't you just feel his passion and anger as he sings a non-conformist song whilst being a non-conformist? Or was that just me? Either way, he moved me.

Still, eff Clear Channel, just cuz that opening is there. Booyah.
