05. Sinead O’Connor disses the Pope
The Scene: One of the most infamous moments in Saturday Night Live history featured Sinead O’Connor “desecrating” a picture of the Pope on live television. During an a cappella version of Bob Marley's "War," which O’Connor intended as a protest of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church, the singer pulled out a photo of Pope John Paul II and tore it down the middle. To this day, NBC refuses to allow for any usage of the footage from the show. Of course, thanks to YouTube, you can check it out below!
Why was it was rock ’n’ roll? Because when it comes to sticking it to “the man,” it doesn’t get much bigger than the Pope.
