The 10 Most Rock 'N' Roll Moments in 'Saturday Night Live' History
We count down the top 10 most rock 'n' roll moments in Saturday Night Live history.
02. Christopher Walken has a fever…
The Scene: In a fictitious Behind the Music parody, Will Ferrell plays Gene Frenkle, the cowbell player for Blue Oyster Cult, who are all set to record their smash single, “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” with famed producer Bruce Dickinson (played by Christopher Walken). During the sketch, Ferrell’s character gets a little carried away with his cowbell playing, much to the chagrin of his band mates and much to the delight of Dickinson. Nothing we could write could possibly express the hilarity that ensues -- and believe us, we tried -- but fortunately, you can watch the video below and see for yourself.
Why was it was rock ’n’ roll? Because we have a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell.
