2. Aryan Brotherhood tried to claim they knew the "Real Meaning" of that song too

 

According to McLean (as posted on his website), this song was originally inspired by the death of Buddy Holly. "The Day The Music Died" is February 3, 1959, when Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper were killed in a plane crash after a concert. McLean wrote the song from his memories of the event. The Beatles Sgt. Pepper album was a huge influence, and McLean has said in numerous interviews that the song represented the turn from innocence of the '50s to the darker, more volatile times of the '60s - both in music and politics.

3. I knew it was Buddy Holly, but the "turn of innocence" thing is new.

 

Well, new to me. I didn't know about the Sgt. Pepper connection either.

4. I'm trying to remember what was "innocent" about the racist, sexist, homophobic, cold-war driven...

...McCarthy-smirched, scandal-plagued 1950s.

Someone help me out, here?

curiously,
