image for Janis Joplin Performs at the Republican Convention
Janice's great- grandad, Scott, would have been very proud

Many conservatives found it tasteless to have rock star Janis Joplin perform at the Republican Convention, in front of audiences mostly ages 60 and above, and a large group of politicians such as Dick Cheney, President Bush, and John Ashcroft.

Joplin sang hard edged hits like Piece Of My Heart, shocking the old- fashioned audience that gathered to hear about moral order and a return to old values.

Ashcroft denounced Joplin as a "menace to good society" and proclaimed that rock music was "very inappropriate at a gathering meant to strengthen the greatness of America."

President Bush said about the singer, "I don't like her hair."

It is still being asked who invited and allowed Joplin to perform.

Many elders in the audience are upset with whoever gave the singer permission to entertain at this gathering.

"I don't care what they say about free speech," said 68- year old participator Judy Smith, "this is not a concert or a speakeasy."

Joplin didn't see it that way. "I mean, come on man, you gotta be free! It's rock 'n' roll- that what America's all about!"
