The 10 Most Rock 'N' Roll Moments in 'Saturday Night Live' History
We count down the top 10 most rock 'n' roll moments in Saturday Night Live history.
09. Frank Zappa hosts Saturday Night Live
The Scene: Frank Zappa hosted Saturday Night Live. Let that sink in for a moment. Zappa hosted SNL in 1978 for the first and last time. His off-beat sense of humor and insistence on pointing out to the audience that he was reading from cue cards made sure he was never invited back. In fact, at the end of the show, most of the cast members (minus John Belushi, of course) chose to stand some distance away from Zappa.
Why it was rock ’n’ roll? Because ZAPPA HOSTED SNL. And because you’ll notice a theme that pissing off Lorne Michaels does wonders for your ranking on this list.
