Ox’s Blog: Throwback to RATM’s SNL Banning Performance
It was 21 years ago today that Rage Against The Machine took to the fabled stages of Saturday Night Live, for the first and last time. It was a quick trip, after the band performed their hit Bulls On Parade they were escorted from the building, not allowed to play their second song. The biggest issue on the night was that the band wanted to hang upside down American flags on their amps, and had the flags hanging there until seconds before the song started as SNL stagehands ripped them down. It all seems a little tame but it was enough to get the band banned from the show. Check out the performance below!
