On this date in 1978, The Blues Brothers (John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd ) make their debut on Saturday Night Live, later becoming the first characters from the show to get their own movie. They're not so much a comedy act as a musical one, as both Belushi and Aykroyd love to play the blues. For their debut on the show, they play a cover of 'Soul Man' by Sam & Dave, who they used as the basis for their characters. Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Matt "Guitar" Murphy, Alan Rubin, Tom Malone, Lou Marini, Paul Shaffer & Steve Jordan performed as the band.
