A phrase that came into popular culture through a Saturday Night Live skit with Will Farrell.
In the skit, Farrell portrayed a member of the 80s rock band Blue Oyster Cult as they recorded their classic hit "Don't Fear the Reaper" in the studio.
Farrell played the cowbell quite forcefully on that track, much to the dismay of the rest of the band.
Yet surprisingly, the studio producer loved Farrell's cowbell playing, and demanded "more cowbell" on the track.

Get the more cowbell mug.
An adaptation on the popular phrase used by a facebook user group whose purpose is the encouragement of facebook content and humor revolving around the satirical cowbell metaphor made popular in a Saturday Night Live skit. The SNL classic mocks Blue Oyster Cult members (played by Will Farrell, Chris Kattan, Horatio Sands and Jimmy Fallon) in the recording studio where they are laying down "Don't Fear The Reaper" with record producer, Bruce Dickenson (played by guest host, Christopher Walken) who advises the fellas that they are going to want that cowbell in their sound and the track could use a little more cowbell to an already "cowbell prevalent" song.

A (subliminal) tool used to politely suggest to your long lost pal to add some content to their facebook profile.

The classic request for more facebook content.

A facebook classic.
Glad to see you on facebook, here is a link to my favorite user group where you can find more cowbell.

This group was made for you because you could use more cowbell.

About your profile, more cowbell!

I'll be honest.. fellas, it was sounding great. But.. I could've used a little more cowbell. So.. let's take it again.. and, Gene, really explore the studio space this time. I mean, really.. explore the space. I like what I'm hearing.
