Need more cowbell?
Not if you’re this guy.
Next we’ll hear about miraculous “cowbell cures” from alties.
Sonofabitch – the Will Ferrell/Christopher Walken bit got the song stuck in my head so much that I had to go learn it. I spent enough time on it on this perfectly good Saturday morning that I even struggled whether to accept or delete the correction made in the main riff by contributors to this 12-year-old tabulature submission. (After playing it about a hundred times each way, I think that you DO want to have your 3rd finger on the 3rd fret of the D string while picking the F chord part of the riff).
Damn you, Orac. Now my 3-year-old wants to play the cowbell.
hi orac! just want to let you know i’m adding ri to my science blogs category on my permanent blogroll.
keep up the good work!
I was, for most intents and purposes, living under a rock when the “More cowbell” thing came out, and now I think I finally understand. (I wasn’t sure who to ask by the time I realized I was totally clueless….) Thank you for that, and thank you for the amusing comic.
I actually have a t-shirt that says, “More Cowbell” with a picture of the…I hesitate to say “instrument”. That SNL clip is so damn funny I can’t even stand it. Thanks for giving me a laugh on a rather crappy Sunday.
The fact that the “more cowbell” meme rides on the endemic virulence of “Don’t Fear the Reaper” has made it powerfully infective.
Thank you, Orac. I had not been infected, and am already a grateful carrier, who promptly passed it on to my son and husband.
Long Live Gene Frenkle, who only in “death” became real to us.
