Springfield Rock City: Top 10 Rock Star Cameos on "The Simpsons"
We count down the top 10 rock-star cameo appearances from The Simpsons.
07. Spinal Tap
"The Otto Show," Episode 57
From a third-season episode called “The Otto Show." After Otto kills Spinal Tap in a bus crash, we find out he doesn't even have a driver's license. He winds up losing his beloved job and reevaluating his life.
How does Spinal Tap fit in? Well, they don't, really -- except that, before Otto kills them, they perform in Springfield, mispronouncing the town's name during the show and watching their gigantic Satan balloon deflate.
“We salute you, our half-inflated Dark Lord,” chant the Tap, trying to make it look intentional.
The role of Spinal Tap bassist Derek Smalls is, of course, played by Simpsons regular Harry Shearer, who voices Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Waylon Smithers and a million other people, regulars and transients alike.
