The History of "More Cowbell" on SNL

This weekend is the eighteenth anniversary of Will Ferrell and Christopher Walken's historic SNL skit, "MORE COWBELL!".

Who hasn't shouted that when you hear Blue Oyster Cult's, "Don't Fear The Reaper", come blasting out of the speakers? Will in his ill fitting shirt and Christopher putting his pants on, "one leg at a time", made this an SNL favorite. But, it almost never happened. Check out the story behind this classic Saturday Night live moment here, from Ultimate Classic Rock.
