On March 25, 1977 Elvis Costello released his debut single “Less Than Zero”. This single didn’t do well in it’s first week, not even making the Top 40 list.
This song was also involved in Costello’s infamous appearance on Saturday Night Live in 1977. Following pressure from his record company to perform this song, Costello stopped only a few seconds into the song stating, “there’s no reason to do this song here,” and launched into his song “Radio Radio”, which he had agreed not to play. As a result he was banned from the show until 1989.
