THIS JOKE YOU CANNOT CHA-A-A-A-NGE: The Wall Street Journal tries to uncover the roots of the tradition of screaming "Freebird" at every concert. While the origins remain murky, there's some great stuff in here, including former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty's attempt to make the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men" the new "Freebird" and the kicker that even current Lynyrd Skynyrd lead singer Johnny Van Zant isn't immune from the phenomana, having once yelled "Freebird" during a Cher concert.
