On the 25th Anniversary of SNL, Costello "sabotaged" Beastie Boys' 'Sabotage' and played 'Radio, Radio' with them.I have the '77 episode of SNL with Elvis Costello and the Attractions, but cannot post it :)
I'm 17, so I don't really have as much "cred" as someone who was around when Elvis Costello got big, so maybe I shouldn't be saying anything. But honestly, if every artist (especially today) were as lyrical and passionate and musical and witty and satirical and intelligent as Mr. Costello... well, I'd listen to the radio.
You have cred if you're thinking that intelligently about music at 17.
13 people wouldn't know good music if Justin Bieber licked their taints while whistling "Nessun Dorma."
Great musicians flock together.
who the HELL disliked this? GET BENT!
This is fantastic. 1. Beastie Boys play their own instruments. 2. Costello rocks everyone's faces off. 3. Beasties give credit to rock gods.
This blows my mind, and is musical history. Elvis Costello was not allowed to play Radio Radio on SNL, and here is doing so with the Beastie Boys. This is a very poignant moment boys and girls. Elvis is KING
costello's banning from snl is snl's loss. anyway, there are many hours of tasty costello video extant for us to view. i saw the '77 show and was thrilled then, and all the times seen since then. he is the orig."angry young man".
@Blackbanshee this is not the orig.of elvis changing the song. that happened in 1977. this is a homage to that.
@MouthingWords Ditch your disclaimer. You're smart and you can clearly articulate your own passion. Never mind that I happen to agree with you ;)
@MouthingWords One of the best comments I have ever read.
Requesting a torrent of that '77 Episode, s'il vous plait
