Why Don't They Dump Them, People, To The Bottom Of The Sea (revisited)

Lynyrd Skynyrd's gun control song "Saturday Night Special" made it's Top 40 debut today (7/19), back in 1975. This peaked at #27, not bad for the bad-boys of Southern Rock. I was (and am) a huge Skynyrd fan, but this is not one of my favorite songs of theirs....
Trivial asides: Skynyrd only had four Top 40 songs, and Saturday Night Special peaked lowest. Their biggest hit was Sweet Home Alabama at #8, followed by"What's Your Name" which was released post-crash, and made it to (unlucky?) #13.
