Actually, that was fairly new Judas Priest, as the band goes.  From 2005...."Revolution"

1905 - Granny from The Beverly Hillbillies "William Jennings Bryan has left the building" then OFF

Just to clarify, "Granny" said, "remember what William Jennings Bryan said.  Fight hard, but fight clean"

Jed - "But you ain't fightin' clean, Granny"
Granny - "'Course I ain't! William Jennings Bryan was a loser!"

Then "Elvis has left the building".
