The famous missing Young Ones music clip

Other current things to post soon but I couldn't resist one of my all time favorite music clips. This one's culled from the Brit-com 80's classic the Young Ones, one of the most wonderfully tasteless and silly TV shows ever. If you splurged on the completed set of shows (all 12 of them from 2 seasons), you missed on this bit where the boys are taking Neil the Hippie to the Army recruiters. Along the way, the show had its musical segment done by "Ken Bishop's Nice Twelve," which was a one-time supergroup including Jools Holland (the conductor) and Chris Difford from Squeeze, Stewart Copeland from the Police and assorted Brit comedians. Since the show couldn't get clearance for the song that they do, a wacky version of Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues," it had to be chopped off the DVD release. Now you can enjoy it through the magic of YouTube, at least until the copyright police order it taken down...
