Fear On SNL

I've been listening to the "Evolution Of A Cro-Magnon" - the book by John Joseph of the Cro-Mags. Eventually I'll actually read the book but I recommend listening to John Joseph tell the story himself. It's a brilliant account of NYC during the 70's and 80's.

Anyway, in the book he talks about when Fear played on Saturday Night Live and all hell broke loose. I've seen bits and pieces of the video but the other day I found the whole thing. A bunch of old school punks were there including Henry Rollins and Ian MacKaye. In fact at the end you can hear Ian yell out "New York sucks!"
