The Ramones on 'The Simpsons' (1993)
The mighty Queens quartet was not the first band to appear and perform on the hit animated show — both Aerosmith and the Red Hot Chili Peppers kicked out the jams during the show's first four seasons — but this cameo from the Ramones remains a personal favorite. The punk icons are hired to play Mr. Burns' birthday bash meant in an effort to cheer up the town's resident ancient curmudgeon. They then kick off the gig by yelling "Up yours, Springfield" and bash out "Happy Birthday," prefacing it with snotty asides about how much the gig stinks. "Have the Rolling Stones killed," sneers a displeased Mr. Burns.
