Bob Dylan (1963)
It was 55 years ago today that Bob Dylan walked out on The Ed Sullivan Show.  Dylan was booked on the show and wanted to play Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues, a protest song against the dangerous radical group The John Birch Society.  When he was told he couldn't play the song on CBS, Dylan essentially told them to go to hell and left the studio.
