Three Chords and a Cloud of (Space) Dust!!!

From 1962, and an episode of The Jetsons, please enjoy Judy Jetson's favorite rock star -- Jet Screamer -- and the greatest rock song in the history of the galaxy.

 "Eep Opp Ork! Ah! Ah!"

Okay, maybe it isn't really the greatest rock song in history, but I think we can all concede that Jet Screamer -- (voiced by the late great Howie Morris) -- is the greatest rock star NAME in history.

Oh, and in case anybody's wondering -- the second greatest rock star name in history belonged to a character on one of those Gerry and Sylvia Anderson sci-fi British puppet shows of the same vintage (probably Fireball XL-5).

To wit: Johnny Swoonerama.

Great video, too.

As a drummer, I appreciate George's solo to open the song. Especially his ability to perform a full 360 degree spin around his kit without ever moving his feet.

I'm thinking Linda Blair copied this body control technique for The Exorcist.

I always thought Lee Ving was the best rock star name.

Incidentally, the Violent Femmes covered this song on the Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits CD.
