More cowbell is a pop-culture catchphrase that stems from a comedy sketch about s rock music. The sketch centers around a character who seems to believe that the cowbell , a simple percussion instrument, is the secret ingredient to make a song work. More cowbell can stand in for anything that a person is longing for or feels is lacking. The phrase may also be used as a simple shout-out to other fans of the sketch. More cowbell originated with a Saturday Night Live sketch that aired in The same year the sketch aired, Geek Speak Weekly created the Cowbell Project, an attempt to document every rock song to use the quirky instrument. Sadly, the database seems to no longer be online.

The sketch featured guest host Christopher Walken as music producer "The Bruce Dickinson", and regular cast member Will Ferrell , who wrote the sketch with playwright Donnell Campbell, as fictional cowbell player Gene Frenkle, whose overzealous playing annoys his bandmates but pleases producer Dickinson. The sketch is often considered one of the greatest SNL sketches ever made, and in many "best of" lists regarding SNL sketches, it is often placed in the top ten, being ranked number nine by Rolling Stone. The first take seems to go well but the band stops playing because the cowbell part is rather loud and distracting. Dickinson, to the surprise of most of the band, asks for "a little more cowbell" and suggests that the cowbell player, Gene Frenkle Will Ferrell , "really explore the studio space this time". Frenkle's exuberance in following this advice causes him to bump into his bandmates as he dances around the cramped studio , thrusting his pelvis wildly in all directions, and the band aborts another take. Frenkle sheepishly agrees to tone down his performance in the spirit of cooperation. He passive-aggressively plays the cowbell very close to Eric Bloom Chris Parnell 's ear and fails to keep time with the rest of the band. The rest of the band expresses frustration with Frenkle, but Dickinson remains focused only on getting more cowbell onto the track. Frenkle makes an impromptu speech to the rest of the band, declaring that Dickinson's stature lends a great deal of weight to his opinion about the cowbell part and that the last time he Frenkle checked, they didn't have "a whole lot of songs that feature the cowbell" and therefore he would be "doing himself a disservice, and every member of the band" if he "didn't perform the hell out of this". In the end, the band agrees to let Frenkle play the cowbell part his way.
I had many, many friends who moved this quickly during courtship, too. He gave me a very clear answer that this was right. She was expecting me to break up with her, like all previous guys she's been into have done.
Things I have and continue to think about. I got married to a Mormon woman. Many men have begun leaving the Church in their early twenties as the mission has become more important. During "Netflix and chill" the other night, I noticed there was a documentary about mormons. I see a future with him but I'm not sure whether I can handle it. I let her know it's not healthy to expect someone else to change - we can only control ourselves and not others. Some Mormons believe the Telestial Kingdom will be littered with spouses who refused to get baptized. I don't think I could let that happen. He was also born in Russia during the 80s and did not come to the United States until so we sometimes deal with cultural differences as well as religious.
