Elvis Costello is awsome.

Today I was writeing a history paper while listening to the great Elvis Costello. Taking a break from the chore of paper writeing I decided to look up the lyrics to radio radio, and found a great story. It was an infamouse night in 1977 when Costello was on SNL and was "supposed" to play, "Less Than Zero"--he spontaneously shut the band down and had them launch, instead, into "Radio Radio," a ferocious jab at the American broadcast industry that pissed off the SNL producers so badly that he was banned from the show for 12 years. That my friends is awsome.
