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.
06. Lots of people said “fuck”
The Scene: This happened too many times to give the honor to just one band, but sneaking the F-bomb passed the censors is always fun. The Replacements were banned after Paul Westerberg yelled out “fuck” during a performance of “Bastards of Young” in 1985 (Of course, the fact that the band showed up to the concert wasted didn’t hurt). System of a Down (“B.Y.O.B.”), Metallica (“Fuel”) and The Strokes also all snuck one past the FCC, but none of those bands drew the scorn of Lorne Michaels enough to merit banning.
Why was it was rock ’n’ roll? Because it’s rock ‘n’ fuckin’ roll, that’s why.
