Today’s Last Man Standing is posted for selfish reasons. You know how important the movie Easy Rider was to my development. The references to that movie in the middle of this video for Dead Milkmen‘s “Smokin’ Banana Peels,” presented here through the eyes of Beavis and Butthead, was a great thrill. Other examples of musical/rock video references to the movie are not springing to mind. I’m not sure if this LMS has any legs beyond this initial entry. If there are other references of this sort I would like to know about them and have them handy for future reference. Thank you.
