Wired News: MySpace Kills Internet Tube Song: "After hearing Sen. Ted Stevens' now infamous description of the internet as a "series of tubes," Andrew Raff sang the senator's words over a folksy ditty and anonymously posted it to MySpace.com, where about 2,500 people listened to the tune, thanks to a link from one of the net's top blogs."

More details on the other side

Update (7/17): Holy $^!&-- the New York Times: Senatorís Slip of the Tongue Keeps on Truckiní Over the Web: "The senatorís powerful position also raised suspicions that one of the songs making fun of him had been censored. On www.iptablog.org, Andrew Raff described how his 'marginally funny' song was taken down from MySpace.com, where he had set up the Ted Stevens Internet Fan Club."
