June 5, 1956: Elvis made his second appearance on Milton Berle's Texaco Star Theatre, where his hip swinging gyrations during his performance of "Hound Dog" provoked howls of outrage from across the country. TV critics panned him, saying his performance looked "like the mating dance of an aborigine" while others said he had "no future in the music business."
