    What are your favorite songs about TV?

    When songwriters take on TV, they tend to cast it in negative and neurotic roles. But I won’t hold it against these musicians; few people understand the downside of TV more intimately than a TV critic. I love songs that take to task both TV and the people who surrender too easily to it. We need to be kept on track. Some of the lyrics to these songs are among my slogans, including these by Frank Zappa: “I am the slime from the video / Oozin’ along on your living room floor.” Here are a few of my favorite songs about TV. -- Matthew Gilbert, Globe Staff

    HELLO!!!!

    "Video Killed the Radio Star"

    How in the hell could you leave that off the list!!! Very disapointed that whomever put this list together is not smart enough to include this song!

    "Everything is on TV" by the Hellecopters. A great song that really should have been on this list.

    How do you not have Black Flag's "TV Party"? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loHP2O8mb7Q Inexcusable omission.

    The comments section list is vastly superior to the Globe list.

    "American Idiot" by Green Day

    Don't want to be an American Idiot
    One nation controlled by the media
    Information age of hysteria
    It's calling out to Idiot America

    Jammin' Me - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.  The best song (a great one) of arguably their worst album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCFAzPl1QmE PS Yogie, notice the comment from Larry Rickenbacker.  Keith influence! Open G, baby!

    Got it. (Keith is the man)   :)   Nice vintage Tom Petty; great track, never heard it before. 

    Here's another TV song:

    Talk Show Host - Radiohead
