I heard this song the other day, and it brought back some very vivid memories.
The year was 1964, and a young student activist from Berkley named Jack Weinberg, coined the phrase..
"Don't trust anyone over 30"!
That battle cry of a generation was adopted by Jerry Rubin in 1968.
One of the most pivotal years in history.
Nixon...Democratic Convention...Viet Nam.. The Tigers won the World Series.. The G-Man graduated from high school...Blah Blah Blah!
This movie came out that year and became an Instant Cult Classic.
It was about the consequences of letting the 'Old' Status Quo running America to ruin. And A young rock star named Max Frost age 24, is aiming to be President...
The theme of this movie was.."Don't Trust Anyone Over 30"..
The Video is a scene from the movie, sung by Max Frost and the Troopers.
The song was always one of my favorites of that year. It made it to #22 on the Billboard Chart, but it was WAY cooler than that. Please listen to the prophetic lyrics..
