I doubt anyone in the year 2000 could have predicted the mileage SNL would get out of their “more cowbell” skit. Eight years later the laughs still continue, with the now famous catchphrases getting more pop culture references than ever.
Out of this comes a cool piece of crud from the developers at Echo Nest. MoreCowbell.dj is a site that lets you upload your MP3s and digitally add cowbell to it. It’s not a half-assed effort either. Your music is analyzed and the cowbell sound is inserted with proper tune and tempo, as if Gene Frenkle himself is playing along on the track. You can also choose to add Christopher Walken soundclips into the mix.
After your upload is done, you can get a HTML snippet to add your creation to your blog or MySpace page.

It’s crud like this that makes the Internet worthwhile.
