He ain’t nothing but an Hungarian hound dog. The city council in Budapest the capitol of Hungary decided to make the “King of Rock and Roll”, Elvis Presley an honorary citizen.

The Move is in gratitude for his support of Hungary’s anti-soviet revolution in 1956.

Elvis appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show in January of 1957 and sang “Peace in the Valley”. Sullivan told the audience that the song expressed Presley’s concern for the Hungarian’s plight after the short lived uprising.

Sullivan went onto say that Elvis wanted folks to make donations to be sent to Hungary.
