It was just 21 years ago, when Christopher Walken said the famous line asking for “more cowbell”. In April 2000, the epic Saturday Night Live sketch aired and marked both his and Will Ferrell’s career amongst their most legendary performances. The skit humorously depicts the rock band, Blue Öyster Cult, recording their classic 1976 hit song “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper” with a comical twist spotlighting the cowbell player, Gene Frenkle acted by Will Ferrell, as the hook of the sketch. If you haven’t watched the clip yet, this is your chance to get in the know


Fast forward to today, both Walken and Ferrell still can’t get enough cowbell! As Ferrel recently tells on SNL, Walken gets hilariously haunted by his cowbell performance as this witty piece of comedy overshadows his larger body of work over the years. In light of Ferrell’s birthday today (Happy Birthday, Will!), we wanted to loop back into time to the cowbell days and give it one extra lifeline - after all, there’s no such thing as too much cowbell, right?
