  • Trivia

    • During their performance of "My Generation," the Patti Smith Group Patti shouts obscenities at the end of the song, then says "kill censorship!" Ironically, when this episode was repeated two years later a feedback sound effect was overdubbed to cover the obscenities, although you can still hear Patti's kill censorship comment. This censored version also appears in the First Season DVD set.
