    Most are probably familiar with the great SNL bit about Don't Fear the Reaper:



    But what other songs feature cowbells?

    Two I thought of:



    Sorry you have to watch on You Tube, but it's worth it.

    (That video is so 1974, for reasons both good and bad. You can't unsee some of the sights!)

    You've got a fever, Rich and the only cure is More Cowbell! Only slightly better than the Rock n Roll Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu.

    “Don’t fear the Revak” helped my friend Josh Revak get elected to house district 25

    I didn’t notice it in their live performance on YouTube. But I swear my ears are hearing some cowbell in the new Stray Cats song “When Nothings Going Right.” It could use more if you ask me.

    I swear that I never 'heard' the cowbell in that song until that skit and ever since it's all I can hear.

    Fabulous! Love it. Deserved to be elected for that video alone, whether I would agree with him or not. Plus he was raised in Minnesota.
