Response to Music On “SNL,” Then And Now:
SONG INTERRUPTIONS… 1977 - Elvis Costello interrupts his own intended song, launches instead into a blistering “Radio Radio” - a harsh critique of media culture. 2004 - Ashlee Simpson awkwardly dances off when the wrong prerecorded vocal track plays.
Okay, here’s my incomplete list of worse things… 1. The Holocaust

18. Genocide in Armenia
19. The Trail of Tears
23. Catholic Church pedophilia scandal
24. Rabbi Weberman pedophilia scandal
25. Penn State pedophilia scandal
26. Jimmy Saville pedophilia scandal
27. Bill Buckner’s error in the 1986 World Series (if you like the Red Sox)
