List fails for not including the rest of the incredible “Homerpalooza” cast, which includes a brilliant turn from Peter Frampton as well as the Smashing Pumpkins. List fails for not including the Who-heavy “Tale of Two Springfields” episode. List fails for forgetting that Ringo was the first Beatle to lend his voice to the show, in a great display of humble self-mockery of his own fame for just being a Beatle. LIST FAILS FOR COMPLETELY FORGETTING THAT “THE SIMPSONS” HAVE ALSO HAD PAUL MCCARTNEY IN ONE OF THE MOST EMOTIONALLY TENDER EPISODES OF ALL TIME.
Michael Jackson doing an entire episode?! Not worth your time, even at number 10? Nope. Jack and Meg uttering all of three lines. Funny, sure. But not ‘great,’ and certainly doesn’t rank when you’re talking ‘greatest.’ Change the title of your list to “Ten Things Related to Rock That We Remember from ‘The Simpsons,’ and I’m sure we can call it even.
