Elvis and Nixon: Crime Fighters!

The president and the King

In a truly fascinating online exhibit from the National Archives, the historic (and hilarious) meeting between Elvis and Nixon is documented with some surprising documents.

Here, a Nixon staffer suggests Elvis record a song “Get High on Life” and then recruit some of his rock and roll friends to write a musical of the same name to dissuade kids from dope.

Then, more shocking is the king’s claim that the Beatles were responsible for anti-American sentiment abroad!

How can anyone argue that Elvis was not high as hell when he wrote this?

  1. Anyway you look at it, that’s some fucked-up malt liquor.

    Of course, Elvis did have kind of a point about the Beatles making a ton of money in America then bad-mouthing it…
