Elton Motello jet boy jet girlGay punk! Yay! With it's risqu? lyrics about giving head and gay teenage relationships, Elton Motello's “Jet Boy, Jet Girl” is–no surprise–not without its controversy. It received a FCC fine for obscenity when it was played on the radio in 1989. A non-sensical, non-offensive version of the song called “Ca plane pour moi” was recorded by Plastic Bertrand much to Alan Ward (singer/song writer behind Elton Motello)'s shagrin. He never persued legal action, but the song was pretty much stolen from him because his original lyrics would never sell.

That more popular version has been recorded by Sonic Youth and Thee Headcoats, but leave it to John Waters to bring back the original, all gay version on his compilation CD 'A Date with John Waters'.
