10,000 Maniacs performing at Bill Clinton's 1992 inaugural ball
Edited on Thu Aug-30-07 01:54 AM by Adenoid_Hynkel
The MTV one. I believe Chelsea was there the whole time and I remember Al stopping by.
I used to have this on VHS and was excited to find it.
Great performance, Great memories. Music was experiencing a renaissance back then. I was 15 and just getting into politcs. It marked the end of the Reagan/Bush years and, as Clinton hadn't sold us out to Dick Morris yet, I was full of optimism.

Odd note, the thing was hosted by Dennis Miller, who claims now he was always rightwing.
Anyhoo, enjoy the video.

and enjoy the historic R.E.M./U2 team-up from that show
happy times!

4. All the GOP could come with was Bush dancing with Ricky Martin
a few years past Martin's sell-by date.
I think we were supposed to think conservatives were hip from that.

2. sweeet! she's so beautiful!
Thanks.

People's comments under it are pitiful.. people who still think a blow job is comparable to an endless war, people in denial about what's going on with Evangelists and the religious Right :p I pity the whole world.

10,000 Maniacs = good. 10,000 maniacs = very bad.
