The Simpsons: Backstage Pass is a veritable rock & roll extravaganza: you'll hear a classical version of "Insane in the Membrane" and watch The Who destroying rubbish with pure guitar power. It also features guest performances by The Who, Cypress Hill, The Smashing Pumpkins, Peter Frampton and Spinal Tap.

In "Homerpalooza", Homer has a mini mid-life crisis caused by his inability to recognise new bands in the local record store (not even Sonic Youth). The result is a trip for him and the kids to the "Hullabalooza" festival where Homer fulfils his rock star dreams by touring as part of the freak show. "A Tale of Two Springfields" sees the town divided by a change in area code, which only The Who can solve with their infinite wisdom: "Why don't you get phones with auto-dial?". In "The Otto Show" Milhouse and Bart enjoy their first outing to a rock gig to see top super-group, Spinal Tap. Finally, "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" offers the rare opportunity to see Homer sing as part of Springfield's B Sharps, who allegedly rocked America back in 1985!

On the DVD: The Simpsons: Backstage Pass offers a collection of Otto's finest moments, proving what a cooool guy the local bus driver is. Otherwise the disc is barren of extras. Picture is standard 4:3 and you can choose between English, French and German audio languages with a vast range of European subtitle options. --Nikki Disney

5.0 out of 5 stars Mayhem mixed with Music 5 Jun 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This fantastic video contains four histerical episodes: "A Tale of Two Springfields" when Springfield gets split into two, due to a change in area codes. A magnificent episode featuring The Who. "Homerpalooza", in which Homer becomes a member of a freak show, and tours with The Smashing Pumpkins. "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" shows Homer in his own singing group, along with Apu, Principal Skinner, Barney and briefly Chief Wiggum. In "The Otto Show" Homer and his family have to suffer the annoyance of the fact that Otto is living in their garage, noisely of course.
If you enjoy this video, is advise Film Festival.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice...but 1 May 2005
As a massive Simpsons fan, I love any Simpsons episode or anything Simpsons related so therfore this is great BUT I don't think you are getting value for money here with just four episodes when you can get more episodes for a few quid more.
Great, but invest in the other box sets first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A star in its self !!! 29 Mar 2004
This was one the most fantastic Simpsons videos i have purchesed. It was full of viewing enjoyment. In the first episode 'A tale of two Springfeilds' is the very best for me. i liked the way they put The Who into it they never just stuck them in at the start they waited until they thought it was the right time. I also enjoyed the second episode 'Homerpalooza' it was weird but funny. In the third episode 'Homer's Barbershop Quartet' they included quite alot of stars such as 'dexy's midnight runners' 'George Harrison' and 'Bing Crosby'. The invention of the 'Be-Sharps' was well made and the idea of barney being a good singer,top class episode. The last episode was not as good as the rest to me. not very much action but alot of info in this episode. OK but not one of my favourites.
In all i think this VHS is the best Simpsons VHS yet with all the music and stars and inventions.
