More Cowbell please. Explore the space.

What if there was a website where you could upload a song and then add more cowbell to it? Wouldn’t that be amazing? What if you could listen to tons of other songs people uploaded that they added more cowbell to? Well you can! Head over to for all the goodness.

“More cowbell” is an American pop culture catch phrase originally derived from an April 8, 2000 Saturday Night Live comedy sketch about the recording of the song “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” by Blue Öyster Cult. The sketch featured guest host Christopher Walken as music producer Bruce Dickinson and Will Ferrell as fictional cowbell player Gene Frenkle. In the television special Saturday Night Live: 101 Most Unforgettable Moments, this sketch is moment number five. –
