Top Five Classic "30 Rock" Musical Moments
|The Cast of "30 Rock"|
Last night the NBC Peacock plucked one of its brightest feathers as Thursday night comedy staple "30 Rock" aired its final episode. Since 2006, the show's cycled in some of the decade's most memorable music cameos and memorable original songs. With the show's theme and most of its original scores composed by star Tina Fey's real-life husband Jeffrey Richmond, music's always been a major part of the shows legacy. As a tribute to the "30 Rock" rolling away, here's our picks for five of the show's most memorable music moments.
5."Muffin Top" 2006
Since the very first episode, Jane Krakowski has played "Liz Lemon's" best friend and "T.G.S." star "Jenna Maroney" as the best kind of deluded attention-loving actress/singer that makes network-television trainwrecks so wonderful. As the lead song from her film "The Rural Juror" closed out the finale last night, many viewers had flashbacks to her first time closing out an episode with her Ghostface Killah-assited #1 in Israel hit "Muffin Top." It's the perfect song to play after any credits, once the tape stops rolling.
4."Werewolf Bar Mitzvah" 2007
The Halloween of the show's second season was made all the more of a frighteningly good time by "Tracy Jordan's" brief recollection of his hit novelty song "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah." Co-written by then-writer (and future Childish Gambino) Donald Glover, the brief clip was such a smash among viewers that NBC released a full-length version of the track just in time for Halloween, offering a night of trick-or-treating shortly before the real life writer's strike.
