Top Ten Musical Performances on the Original Arsenio Hall Show
3. Digable Planets - "Nickel Bag"
With a full band, complete with jazz flautist, this New York trio claims not to be advocating the use of controlled substances which are the only hollow words of their performance.
2. Faith No More - "Epic"
The most bizarre, well-played, and rocking song on the list is "Epic." Mike Patton takes a break from screaming ,"What is it?" to punch a shirtless Hitler mannequin. One can only wonder what the night's other guests, Wayne Gretzky and the guy who played the Equalizer, thought of the performance.
1. A Tribe Called Quest - "Scenario"
Perhaps the best rap performance ever captured by a television camera. As the members of Tribe and their guests, Leaders of the New School, brings the crowd to their feet with each rapper outdoing the emcee before him until Busta Rhymes takes the mike and throws the perhaps out of the statement.
