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.

More cowbell is the reason that Blue Oyster Cult's mega-hit "Don't Fear the Reaper" reached such heights. While recording the song, the cowbell track was barely audible. It was the sharp ear of the producer who stepped in and demanded "more cowbell."(After all, he did know how to make hit records.)
Gentelmen, if "Don't Fear the Reaper" is going to be a smash, we need to hear more cowbell.
