Storyline

Depressed about his inability to keep up with the existing music scene when Bart reveals how uncool his interest in 1970's rock music truly is, Homer decides to take Bart and Lisa to the Hullabalooza music festival to show them this isn't the case. Failing at that, he nearly sparks a riot and gets shot at with a cannon(ironically for Peter Frampton) which bounces a fake pig off his fat belly, and ends up being hired as part of the festival's freak show, touring with bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Cypress Hill, Sonic Youth, and yes, Frampton.

The young 'uns learn about rock'n'roll!
29 December 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"The Simpsons" have been on the air since I was a teen, as shocking as that might be! And the differences in musical taste never feel more apparent between really young viewers and older fogeys like myself than here. In this episode, my personal favourite of all, Homer gets to take Bart and Lisa to one of the travelling 'loozas that are all over the place in the post Woodstock marketplace. Since that muddy festival in the rain, money hungry promoters have been looking for massive crowds to make even more bucks. And the integrity of what Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction fame started with "Lollapalooza" has taken a few hits over the years. Too much greed and not enough restraint in just who should grace the stage is what makes many sour on these concepts, as well as ever higher ticket prices.

Of course a born hustler like Mr. Burns has his bony fingers in the pie, owning the ticket shafters who are charging a ridiculous service fee on top of the face value so music lovers can go watch Peter Frampton, Cypress Hill, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins and more, including Homer's dangerous party trick that eventually takes a toll on his very round equator. Great songs by Mountain and Grand Funk are heard in this oddly touching take on the generation gap between parents and their children. And who'd have have guessed a string section accompanying Cypress Hill would make such beautiful music?
