LA rocker pens Falwell tribute tune

Republican presidential candidate John McCain may be leading the Beltway hosannas for Moral Majority founder Jerry Falwell, but on the left Coast, it's musician Travis Fields from the popular indie rock band The Spectacles, who's first out of the gate, emailing us with the first Falwell elegy.

Here's the first verse:

Tammy Faye, wasting away
Fallwell dead, tabloid baby said
The religious right, losing all their might
Pat Robertson? Amen.

Look for the song on The Spectacles' new album (their third) which they begin recording this weekend in Hollywood. Check out their album Hey Ice Cream and more Spectacles tunes on iTunes. And if you have a chance to see them live, don't pass it up. These guys are the Meat Puppets of the 21st Century.
