'Saturday Night Live': 'More Cowbell' Forever Changed How We Hear '(Don't Fear) The Reaper'

Before 2000, I'm not sure if I ever noticed the cowbell on "(Don't Fear) The Reaper." Like everyone else, I was focused on that killer guitar riff — the one that sounded vaguely exotic, kinda spooky, almost serpentine — and those crooning vocals that spoke of love and death in equal measure. Melodic but also moody, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" felt like the apotheosis of 1970s classic-rock radio: The track had that overly complicated middle section that echoed the pretentiousness of the overall musical packaging. It was a song that was trying too hard to say something and be more musically intricate than its peers. "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" was plenty hooky and plenty cheesy — a product of a largely forgotten era of rock 'n' roll. Just like the band that recorded it, Blue Öyster Cult.


A Definitive Ranking of the Most Popular Memes Inspired By 'I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson'

Comedian Tim Robinson's I Think You Should Leave truly is the show of our time. By that, we, of course, mean the Time of the Internet. The Netflix series is filled to the brim with cringe-comedy centered around socially awkward humans acting unreasonable to the point of becoming detached from any form of reality. That makes the show immensely memeable, with almost every line of dialogue worthy of reference for anyone who is Extremely Online.
