Freebird!

I've done it. You've done it. Everyone you know has shouted "Freebird!" in a crowded auditorium and thought they were the next Chris Rock.

Of course it's not funny. Of course it's a cliche. Still, who can resist?

Here's a history of the "Freebird!"-shouting phenomenon, along with some rather amusing responses by bands who, of course, won't play along.

I'd rather hear "Stairway to Heaven" anyway.

Pretty funny.

I, on the other hand, prefer "more cowbell!"

I wonder if I can use this... I have to give a presentation at a conference this summer and try as I might it is very dry. But plant one of my friends in the audience and when I ask for questions or comments she can wave a lighter and yell, 'Freebird!'...
Now that would make it a good lecture.

Definitely more cowbell.
