Elvis Esta Muerto

I’m ripping more CDs from my collection today, and I stumbled across a band I haven’t thought of in a while: Living Colour. I remember they were huge for a while, and their performance of “Cult of Personality” on SNL kicked all form of ass.

Then I remembered this little number:

I always dug that song and video, because I really don’t understand the Elvis Phenomena.

That’s right, capital P on Phenomena. I’m not a big fan, but I will admit the man had talent and had a big influence on music. But to elevate him to cult status? Come on.

Some people just don’t know when to let go.

    My wife’s entire family worships Elvis. One has an All-Elvis wet bar with all of the Elvi tunes. Another has a living room dedicated to Jelly Donut, White Disco Fat Elvis. Of course, I have to rag on him at family gatherings. Makes me popular.
