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.
08. Rage Against the Machine vs. Steve Forbes
The scene: Rage Against the Machine were all set to perform two songs on an episode of SNL but ended up having their set cut short, thanks to the presence of then-presidential candidate and billionaire Steve Forbes. The ever-politically-minded RATM protested the presence of Forbes with two upside-down American flags (considered a disrespectful use of the flag) hung on their amps by producer Brendan O’Brien. Stage hands were ordered to remove the flags as the first song, “Bulls on Parade,” began.
Why was it was rock ’n’ roll? Say what you will about the politics of Rage Against the Machine, but pissing off “the man” is a cornerstone of rock ‘n’ roll.
