12 Best Rock Star Cameos on The Simpsons

Homer Simpson as Freddie Mercury on The Simpsons

R.E.M., “Homer the Moe” (2001)

REM and Michael Stipe on The Simpsons

R.E.M. rocked out in a garage! The Georgia outfit were duped into playing Homer’s home bar after being led to believe the Simpson dad and his pals were millionaires staging a benefit to save the rainforest. They played “It’s the End of the World as We Know It” to an audience of three who lapped up every second. Who wouldn’t have wanted to be at such an intimate show? (Without tricking Michael Stipe, though.)
