"Give it more cowbell" I didn't understand this reference till I watched that BBC4 documentary about American rock anthems. Did anyone else see it?

I didn't see the documentary, and the idea of watching a programme about "American rock anthems" seems peculiarly masochistic, but I thought the "more cowbell" remark had been around since the time of Mahler's 6th Symphony.

Did Christopher Walken tell Mahler to 'give it more cowbell?'

This is pretty good, but it needs more cowbell.

There's an old thread on 'zon.com Classical forum called 'What Classical Music Needs more Cowbell?'
The OP is:
"Many of you have probably seen Saturday Night Live's skit "I Need More Cowbell". If you haven't go to Youtube and view it. What pieces of classical music are missing something?"

My favourite cowbell (and my daughter's, aged 4): Procul Harum's "Whisky Train"
