The Simpsons are celebrating their Thirtieth Anniversary this year (they debuted as their own, half-hour sitcom in 1989)…and we’ve decided to do some Simpsons lists for ya!

Today…let’s mash up 95.9 The RAT and The Simpsons and make a list…The Top 5 Rock Cameos!   With video!

Let the debates begin!

5.) The Ramones

The godfathers of punk rock play Mr. Burns’ birthday!


4.) Green Day

Technically taken from The Simpsons Movie…this appearance by Green Day still kills!


3.) The Smashing Pumpkins

Billy Corgan and company bring the noise for the episode Homerpalooza!


2.) Aerosmith

Aerosmith performs “Walk This Way” at Moe’s Tavern for the “Flaming Moe” episode!


1.) The Who

This appearance by The Who (complete with a nod to the late, great Keith Moon) is AWESOME!
