Mary Tyler Moore has died


Although Mary Tyler Moore doesn’t conjure up images of rock and roll for most people, she certainly has inspired it in some.


For instance, take this cover version of the MTM Show theme song — “Love Is All Around” — covered by the Minneapolis based punk band Husker Du.


And who could forget the reference to MTM in Weezer’s power pop classic “Buddy Holly?”

  1. I immediately thought of the punk cover when I read MTM died and it’s funny the artist didn’t come to me right away because I was a big Huskers fan back then.

    Poor Butch Trucks. Like when Darby Crash killed himself a day before John Lennon got shot.
