Don’t forget to check YouTube next month to see the Detroit duo’s cameo! Or, we suppose, watch it on “television.”

Favorite rocker-in-Springfield quote … Go!

    “Thanks for the fab painting, I hung it on me wall!” (Ringo Starr)

    Plus the whole Hullabalooza episode. (Especially when Sonic Youth get into Peter Frampton’s cooler… and “Cypress Hill… I’m looking at youuu…”).

    Johnny Cash was a pretty badass coyote too.

  3. In the rock-and-roll fantasy camp episode, when Elvis Costello tries to convince the guys that playing bass is cool. Also when Tom Petty asks if anyone’s seen his missing toe after the rock concert.

    Since when doesn’t Meg White wear shoes?

    Jackson Browne singing a song about masturbation (“Rosie”) in honor of Marge.

    Further to Megan…

    “Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins”
    “Homer Simpson, smiling politely”

    “sometimes I nod my head, like, yes this rocks! and other times i shake my head back and forth, like, no, dont ever-stop-a-rockin”

    r.e.m. playing the simpsons’ garage…

  8. No question which is the best – after Homer crashes U2′s pop concert:

    Bono: Hold on! He’s talking about waste management… and that affects the whole damn planet.

    The Edge: Oh, boy, here we go.

  9. Daltrey: “Who huddle!”

  10. Phil  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Homer: Now Grand Funk Railroad paved the way for Jefferson Airplane, which paved the way for Jefferson Starship. Now the stage was all set for the Alan Parsons Project, which I think was some sort of hovercraft.

  11. Kim Gordon: Hullabalooza isn’t about freaks; it’s about music, and advertisement, and youth-oriented product positioning.

  12. “It’s BTO. They’re Canada’s answer to ELP. Their big hit was TCB. That’s how we talked in the 70′s. We didn’t have a moment to spare.”

    -Homer

  13. Homer Simpson On Grand Funk Railroad:

    “Mark Farner’s wild shirtless lyrics, the bong-rattling bass of Mel Schacher, the competent drum work of Don Brewer”

  14. seamus  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    to Bachman Tuner Overdrive by homer: “play taken care of business”

    they play the song

    “play the workin’ overtime part!”

    or

    the forementioned U2 episode:

    homer sneaking into U2 concert:

    “potato man!”

    “my god man! where have you been!”

  15. “it smells like otto’s jacket.

    “I’ve been a Who fan since their first record – when they were called ‘The Hillbilly Bugger Boys!’”

    At Otto’s wedding when he gets an 80s cover band.

    Lead Singer – “No, we’re Cyanide; a loving tribute to Poison”
    Drummer, screaming – “We need a ride home!”

    ALSO

    I can’t remember all of it but it deals with a confused hair metal band.

    “…I thought we were Quiet Riot.”
    “The kick drum says we’re RATT”

    Kim,

    Meg doesn’t wear shoes in the “Under Blackpool Lights” DVD…

    Further bit of trivia: they filmed the DVD over two nights, and for the first night Jack had “NOXIOUS” written on his left arm. For the second night, he added “OB” so that even though they had to wear the same clothes (the exact outfit, in fact, that the animated Jack is wearing above) and play the same set, fans would be able to determine which parts of the film were filmed at which show.

    When Radiohead call Scott Tenorman a baby. Wait, wrong show. OK, how about this, courtesy SNPP.com:
    Adam: Look, guys. I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
    The Edge: Aw, ‘ere we go…
    Bono: How many spoons have you got now, Adam?
    Adam: Nine. If I didn’t have my spoons, I’d go insane.
    Bono: Can I see it?
    [Adam hands him the spoon; Bono promptly throws it behind his head.]
    Adam: My spoon!
    [the spoon lands on the head of Charles Montgomery Burns, who sits in the seat directly behind The Edge.]
    Mr. Burns: [muttering] Wankers.

    Without a doubt, Mick Jagger in the Rock Star Camp episode:

    “Rule number one: there are no rules!!

    (everyone cheers)

    Rule number two: no outside food.”

  24. Goodnight, Springton. There will be no encore.

  25. “Who likes the Doobie Brothers? Cause we’ve got one of em’”

  26. jack white looks so life-like, i think the animators just re-used john waters’ moustache from a previous episode.

    I enjoyed the Boy band mockery one. . .the Party Posse and their first single: “YVAN EHT NIOJ”

  28. Homer: Lisa, honey, if you really want to preserve his memory, I recommend getting a tattoo. It preserves the things you love.
    [pulls up his sleeve]
    “Starland Vocal Band”?! They suck!

  29. those elvis costello quotes are so hilarious. i second them.

  30. The whole psychedelic chili pepper sequence.

    Abe: “Goo goo goo joob?” and Johnny Cash as the wise old fox.

  31. Joe  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Homer: Look at these records! Jim Nabors, Glen Campbell, the Doodletown Pipers– Now look at her [Marge's] records– They stink!

  32. Chris  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Flaming Moes episode-
    Barney to Homer:
    :”You just fell on Aerosmith”

    also Aerosmith drummer to Mrs. Krabbahil(sp?)
    “I really need my drumsticks back”

    MR. BURNS: Have the Rolling Stones killed.

    PETER FRAMPTON: God. Homer Simpson wrecks my pig, Cypress Hill steals my orchestra, and Sonic Youth’s in my cooler! Get out of there, you kids!

    THURSTON MOORE: Aw, come on, Mr. Frampton. You’re not gonna eat all that watermelon.

  36. Teenager 1: Oh, here comes that cannonball guy. He’s cool.
    Teenager 2: Are you being sarcastic, dude?
    Teenager 1: I don’t even know anymore.

  37. after the Ramones play ‘Happy Birthday’ for Mr. Burns:

    Burns: (to Smithers) Have the Rolling Stones killed.

    Lisa: This band (Smashing Pumpkins) really seem to tap in to their audience’s angst.

    Bart: C’mon, Lisa. Making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel.

    ——-

    Krusty (to Chili Peppers): Guys, the network asked if you could clean up your lyrics.

    Peppers all protest in unison

    Krusty: Like where it says “What I got I wanna put it in you…” Can you change it to “What I want is I want to hug and kiss you”?

    Peppers: Wow, those are lyrics everyone could enjoy!

  39. Gary  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Certainly not verbatim, but something like:

    HOMER: “Thanks to your gloomy, depressing music, my children no longer dream of a future I can’t possibly provide.”

    BILLY CORGAN: “Well, we try.”

  40. David  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Homer: “Uh, Mr. Seltzer?”

    Brian: “It’s Setzer.”

    Homer: “…. Nooo, I’m pretty sure it’s Seltzer.”

    Meg hardly (n)ever wears shoes when they play. I can’t think of one time I’ve seen them where she is wearing shoes. If you do a quick google image search you will find numerous photos of her without shoes. I read a long time ago that she doesn’t like wearing them when she plays but can’t remember why and couldn’t for the life of me be able to dig that interview up.

  42. fido  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Thurston Moore: “Homer took a dive? Oh man, I’m so disillusioned right now.”

    Or was that Lee?

  43. Bender  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Homer: I used to rock and roll every night, and party ev-e-ry day. Then it was ev-e-ry other day. Now I’m lucky if I can find 30 minutes a week in which to get funky.

  44. Blu  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    When Bart and Milhouse stumble on Flanders’ Beatle memorabilia collection.

    Homer, bopping on four Beatle bobbleheads-
    “Hey look, I’m Brian Epstein! Now I’m Michael Jackson: (speaking in falsetto) I own all your music, heehee!!”

  45. Mac Buckets  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Burns: And to think, Smithers, you laughed when I bought Ticketmaster. (imitating Smithers) NOBODY’S going to pay a hundred-percent “service charge.”

    Smithers: It’s a policy that ensures a healthy mix of the rich and the ignorant, sir.

    —-and —

    Roadie: Someone here ordered the London Symphony Orchestra, possibly while high. Cypress Hill, I’m looking in your direction.

  46. Stephen  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Steven Tyler: HELLO CLEVELAND!
    Brad Whitford (?): It’s Springfield, Steve.
    Steven Tyler: Whatever.

  47. best post title ever.

  48. “At Otto’s wedding when he gets an 80s cover band.

    Lead Singer – “No, we’re Cyanide; a loving tribute to Poison”
    Drummer, screaming – “We need a ride home!” ”

    I always thought it would have been funny if, after the announcement that they were Cyanide, the bassist or something had quickly said “I was in Poison.”

  49. Pandyora  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    Roger — Wait, Homer, a lot of these are Grand Funk Railroad songs!

    John — And we don’t even know “Pac Man Fever”.

  50. torst  |   Posted on Aug 24th, 2006 0

    from the “Homer the Moe” episode:

    Michael Stipe: “You LIED to us!!” (smashes a bottle and starts going after Homer with it)

    Mike Mills: “Michael, no!”

    Peter Buck: “That’s not the R.E.M. way.”
