Classic Rock Bottom

This time out in our musical look at Rebels we'll be making our first visit to Rebels In Film.
I would think the two dominant forces in that category would still, after all these years, be between Marlon Brando and James Dean.
Brando came first...and Bikers are ALWAYS Rebels, lol!
Also in this episode, Rebels In History.
And I am sure you will be surprised by my picks- shocked probably for my choice of the # 1 Rebel In World History.
But when you think about it, and believe me I did, who else would be a better candidate?
We'll have fun with this one.
Once a Rebel, always a Rebel- so get out there and shake things up!
And we are only Halfway Home!
Again it's your choice of links to get on that motorcycle and raise hell, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

I helped you avoid the void, lol!

Well that's good.  I thought I was gonna have to void that GP.  But now I don't.

RJ, I found it.

Here's the kicker...I played The Prayer Of St. Francis in that series by Sarah MacLachlan...and you gave it to HER!

See, my mind still works efficiently, I was off just a little bit, a mistake anyone could make, lol!!

Not specifically, but there were only 4 parts to the All Saints series.

Remember, I did it instead of Halloween in 2011?

So it would have been here.

Yes, we can check if you played it on this site.  Problem is, do you know which episode?

I agree with Part One being better- I think going the Historical Rebels route slowed things down.
But I couldn't neglect them and went with it, the public be damned...Rebel that I am, lol!
Oh man, I am a huge Stray Cats fan.
I thought the Dueling Brandos was a bit of genius on my part, lol!
Now if I am not mistaken, that is the SECOND time you have given the Golden Pell to the Burns Sisters for The Prayer Of St. Francis.
And THAT would be a real first!
I know you loved the song when I played it on the Saints shows over a year ago, and I think you gave it the Golden Pell back then too.
Any way to check?
As to that last question, sometimes you can be TOO smart, LOL!
Thanks for the listen, writing and a possible double-Pell,

This was a good show, but I give the edge to part one overall.

The Steppenwolf song was good, of course, but overplayed.  I'm not much of a Stray Cats fan like Jon is, so it was just okay for me.  

I did really like the Dueling Brandos skit and Jackson Browne's song called The Rebel Jesus.  He probably would have taken the Golden Pell, but...

That goes to the Burns Sisters.  What a beautiful song.  I think you said it was called The Prayer Of St. Francis.  Just beautiful.  

You know, most of the time when you fight the law, the law wins...should we expect The Authority Song next week?

Keen Daddy-0??? HUH???
Oh wait, the guy in the Wild One...that's right, he ruins his hipness by saying "KEEN", LOL!
Yeah, a lot of bands past their prime suck like Steppenwolf, although John Kay did some pretty good solo stuff.
But that's why we play the old records!
I played the Stray Cats single edit because I felt I would be running long- I was right, and that's also why I apologize for having to talk over the Clash.
I'd play Kiss...I have no class, lol!
The Easy Rider movie, I enjoyed it, and remember being shocked at the end.
The interesting thing about that Jackson Browne song was, as I said, it first appeared on the Irish group The Chieftains album years before he did it- and it is a Christmas song.
But I never played it then because I thought it might be too religious...but instead I played it for Rebels, lol!
I think that's the second time I have played that song by the Burns Sisters and it got a nice reaction the first time too.
I would think you would have heard that Pete Seeger song as a hit by the Sandpipers.
Funniest line here:
And thanks for convincing me to light up at work. Now I have to take a piss test.
Hahahaha, thanks for the listen and writing, and good luck with the test!

The was keen, daddy-o!

I'm not much into Steppenwolf. Saw them about 10 years ago with Pat Travers, BOC and others and they closed out the show. Man, did they SUCK!

Stray Cats? Wow! I suprised that you played this and then had the gall to EDIT IT!

Car crash???? I was thinking for a second you put the beginning of "Detroit Rock City" but then remembered that you have class and wouldn't play anything by Kiss.

Roger McGuinn was cool, the movie though? Eh. It has it's moments but is mostly boring.

Not a huge fan of Jackson Browne but this song was pretty good. And the song by The Burns Sisters was AWESOME. Wow, that was beautiful!

Pete Seeger was ok, I've heard that song by someone(s) else. 

Like the ending with The Clash even though you had to talk over the damn song. And thanks for convincing me to light up at work. Now I have to take a piss test.
