"Elvis Is Dead" is a song by Living Colour featuring Little Richard off the album Time's Up. Before, during, and after Little Richard's spoken-word performance, many voices speak the song title, concluded by one announcing, "Elvis has left the building!" After, the band twisted the line "Maybe I've a reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland" from Paul Simon's "Graceland" to yield the refrain, "I've got a reason to believe we all won't be received at Graceland." They also quote Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" in stating, "Elvis was a hero to most," but diverge in adding, "But that's beside the point."
