I know this is clearly a variation from my usual louder-for-power screaming and raging metal, but I do enjoy a little break sometimes. I enjoy some of the New Wave and punk bands from England who took a turn from the raging punk of the late 70s, incorporating blues and reggae influences into their music, such as The Police, The Clash, and Elvis Costello.
While Costello, like others of that sub-genre, hit it big in the late 70s and early 80s, Costello is still out there, doing his thing, and has developed a following. In 1999, he updated his SNL stunt, going on stage at SNL to interrupt the Beastie Boys, who were starting to play "Sabotage", who then joined him in again playing "Radio, Radio". I've got the video clip of it somewhere.
