What's the frequency Kenneth is a song by REM

Yes Jazz, after the fact. But...

"What's The Frequency, Kenneth?"

"What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
I was brain-dead, locked out, numb, not up to speed
I thought I'd pegged you an idiot's dream
Tunnel vision from the outsider's screen
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh
You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh

I'd studied your cartoons, radio, music, TV, movies, magazines
Richard said, "Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy"
A smile like the cartoon, tooth for a tooth
You said that irony was the shackles of youth
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

"What's the frequency, Kenneth?" is your Benzedrine, uh-huh
Butterfly decal, rear-view mirror, dogging the scene
You smile like the cartoon, tooth for a tooth
You said that irony was the shackles of youth
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I never understood the frequency, uh-huh

You wore our expectations like an armored suit, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
You said that irony was the shackles of youth, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
You wore a shirt of violent green, uh-huh
I couldn't understand
I never understood, don't mess with me, uh-huh

I was going to say...there's a song..R.E.M.?

Fascinating podcast.
Frequency.....reminds me of some of the things The Master Of The Key said about us not being able to see other entities.

The R.E.M. song's title refers to an incident in 1986 when two unknown assailants attacked journalist Dan Rather while repeating "Kenneth, what is the frequency?" One assailant is thought to be William Tager, who was convicted of killing NBC stagehand Campbell Montgomery outside The Today Show studio in 1994. Interestingly it's thought that postmodern fiction writer Donald Barthelme had something to do with it, as both the phrase "what is the frequency?" and a recurring character named Kenneth was in his books. Very strange none-the-less.

It's all just too spooky.
