Anyone who grew up in the ’70s will tell you that the decade gave us some of the greatest music humanity has ever produced. And few shows captured the hazy, hard rockin’ vibe of the Me Decade better than That ’70s Show. (Heck, the show even named episodes after songs by Led Zeppelin, The Who and more.) Before you catch That ’70s Show on IFC, check out some moments where the gang turned things up to 11.

1. The Theme Song

intro

Of course That ’70s Show starts with a classic rock track, and a particularly catchy one at that. The gang can be seen rocking out to Big Star’s “In the Street” as covered by Cheap Trick. (Todd Griffin sang the theme during the first season before Cheap Trick’s version was used for the rest of the show’s run.) And every time you find yourself singing along, take heart in the knowledge that Big Star’s Alex Chilton got an apropos $70 payment every time it was aired.


2. ‘Who’ Was That Guest Star?

Who better to play Fez’s music teacher than Roger Daltrey, the man who gave us some of the greatest teen anthems of all time? The Who frontman also joined the gang in “The Circle” to profess his love for cheeseburgers.


3. Alice Cooper Plays D&D

Another rocker changed the meaning of “play” by appearing in the show to roll dice and slay dragons. Who wouldn’t want Alice Cooper in their Dungeons & Dragons game?


4. The gang sings “The Joker”

That ’70s Show‘s musical episode — cunningly called “That ’70s Musical” — was a treat for fans of the decade. The gang (sans Jackie and Fez) performed the Steve Miller classic complete with trippy light effects and Hyde singing the “midnight toker” line.


5. That Disco Episode

A web of jealousy and confusion entraps the characters, but the glitter and glee of disco keeps them boogie-ing in “That Disco Episode.” And Eric’s later revelation of roller disco mastery is a real blast from the past.


6. (Still) Stayin’ Alive

Disco never dies, and “That Velvet Rope” saw Eric Foreman definitely “Stayin’ Alive” to the most strut-able beat ever laid down in his shag-carpeted tribute to Saturday Night Fever. It’s just a shame the bouncer wouldn’t let him into the club.


7. Charo Brings the Coochie Coochie

Charo’s bubbly persona led to her starring in shows decades after her original fame, enabling her to “coochie-coochie” with Kitty long after her Love Boat and flamenco guitar heyday.


8. Isaac Hayes Serenades Fez

Who is the man, who will help Fez when no one can? Someone even better than Shaft — Shaft theme song singer, Isaac Hayes. The smooth crooner and South Park star provided the soundtrack for the cool cat ladies man known as “Work Fez.”


9. Hyde Loves Zeppelin

Good music can get you through anything, and Hyde had to go through more than most. Luckily he had excellent taste to see him through those trying times.


10. Eric Goes Full Kiss

Red’s vision of what an undisciplined Eric would be like was every ’70s parent’s worst nightmare.

Artfully Off

Celebrity All-Star by Sisters Weekend is available now on IFC's Comedy Crib.

Posted by on

Sisters Weekend isn’t like other comedy groups. It’s filmmaking collaboration between besties Angelo Balassone, Michael Fails and Kat Tadesco, self-described lace-front addicts with great legs who write, direct, design and produce video sketches and cinematic shorts that are so surreally hilarious that they defy categorization. One such short film, Celebrity All-Star, is the newest addition to IFC’s Comedy Crib. Here’s what they had to say about it in a very personal email interview…

IFC_Comedy-Crib_Sisters-Weekend-Series-Image

IFC: How would you describe Celebrity All-Star to a fancy network executive you just met in an elevator?

Celebrity All-Star is a short film about an overworked reality TV coordinator struggling to save her one night off after the cast of C-List celebrities she wrangles gets locked out of their hotel rooms.

IFC: How would you describe Celebrity All-Star to a drunk friend of a friend you met in a bar?

Sisters Weekend: It’s this short we made for IFC where a talent coordinator named Karen babysits a bunch of weird c-list celebs who are stuck in a hotel bar. It’s everyone you hate from reality TV under one roof – and that roof leaks because it’s a 2-star hotel. There’s a magician, sexy cowboys, and a guy wearing a belt that sucks up his farts.

IFC: What was the genesis of Celebrity All-Star?

Celebrity All-Star was born from our love of embarrassing celebrities. We love a good c-lister in need of a paycheck! We were really interested in the canned politeness people give off when forced to mingle with strangers. The backstory we created is that the cast of this reality show called “Celebrity All-Star” is in the middle of a mandatory round of “get to know each other” drinks in the hotel bar when the room keys stop working. Shows like Celebrity Ghost Hunters and of course The Surreal Life were of inspo, but we thought it
was funny to keep it really vague what kind of show they’re on, and just focus on everyone’s diva antics after the cameras stop rolling.

IFC: Every celebrity in Celebrity All-Star seems familiar. What real-life pop personalities did you look to for inspiration?

Sisters Weekend: Anyone who is trying to plug their branded merch that no one asked for. We love low-rent celebrity. We did, however, directly reference Kylie Jenner’s turd-raison lip color for our fictional teen celebutante Gibby Kyle (played by Mary Houlihan).

IFC: Celebrity seems disgusting yet desirable. What’s your POV? Do you crave it, hate it, or both?

Sisters Weekend: A lot of people chase fame. If you’re practical, you’ll likely switch to chasing success and if you’re smart, you’ll hopefully switch to chasing happiness. But also, “We need money. We need hits. Hits bring money, money bring power, power bring fame, fame change the game,” Young Thug.

IFC: Who are your comedy idols?

Sisters Weekend: Mike grew up renting “Monty Python” tapes from the library and staying up late to watch 2000’s SNL, Kat was super into Andy Kaufman and “Kids In The Hall” in high school, and Angelo was heavily influenced by “Strangers With Candy” and Anna Faris in the Scary Movie franchise, so, our comedy heroes mesh from all over. But, also we idolize a lot of the people we work with in NY-  Lorelei Ramirez, Erin Markey, Mary Houlihan, who are all in the film, Amy Zimmer, Ana Fabrega, Patti Harrison, Sam Taggart. Geniuses! All of Em!

IFC: What’s your favorite moment from the film?

Sisters Weekend: I mean…seeing Mary Houlihan scream at an insane Pomeranian on an iPad is pretty great.
