When originally aired in 1978, and on broadcast syndication shortly thereafter, when Les is getting dressed up and putting on the hair piece, "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner is playing. Due to music licensing issue with some versions of this episode available online and on DVD, the song has been replaced by a sound-alike.
Shout! Factory's 2014 DVD release has restored the original song. See more
