Spinal Tap A to Zed

Zappa, Frank: In the song, "Be In My Video," on the album Them or Us, Frank Zappa made several references to Tap. The song was released in 1984, soon after "This is Spinal Tap" arrived in theaters. Among the lyrics:

Wear a leather collar
And a dagger in your ear
I will make you smell the glove
And try to look sincere, then we'll

Dance the blues
Let's dance the blues
Let's dance the blues
Under the megawatt moonlight.

Zappa's son, Dweezil, made a guest appearance on Tap’s 1992 album, "Break Like the Wind."
