“See No Evil” – Television

Video

The lead-off track from Television’s debut album “Marquee Moon” and aside from “Little Johnny Jewel” and “Marquee Moon,” it’s probably their most famous song. Put to brilliant use over the end credits on the incendiary ratings board documentary “This Film is Not Yet Rated.”

“Max’s Kansas City” – Wayne County and the Backstreet Boys

Here’s the punk version of Arthur Conley’s “Sweet Soul Music.”  Wayne (now Jayne) County gives a special shout-out to one of the preeminent underground music clubs of 1960s-1970s NYC, as well as all of the NYC punk icons of the day: Patti Smith, the Ramones, the Talking Heads, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, the New York Dolls, Pere Ubu (yes, they’re from Cleveland, but they deserve a shout-out), Lance Loud and the Mumps, Richard Hell, Television, Tuff Darts, etc.  And no, the Backstreet Boys who backed Wayne up are not the barely pubescent, New Millenial bad-facial hair boys who want it THAT way.
