in the MISFITS song Bullet, Danzig uses the Kennedy assassination as a
background event to write from the point of view of a psychopath not
capable of empathy.

while SAXON writes 'Dallas 1 PM' from a conventional sympathetic viewpoint,
yet they're both great songs.

Ain't music great !

emm yes that's true, although Kennedy's election speech is sampled in it.

here's Ben Folds Five with the only non-rap song I can think of right now that specifically mentions winning an election

A song about electoral politics that really doesn't map that well onto the Irish landscape:


although it'd be a good song to play at Gemmtrails

It took me ages to realise that the guy was called Ben Folds and that "Ben Folds Five" wasn't yet another pretentious band name

Was BFF a generally known abbreviation around the time they formed? Maybe they were just really good friends.
I do not believe so. ha! Never occurred to me. TBH the above video is mostly good for the great turn of the millenium formless, shapeless, "fashions". Lime green shirt, leather jacket and coloured glasses 👌
