Spinal Tap Reunites!!

The legendary rock band "Spinal Tap," which earned a distinguished place in rock history as one of England's loudest bands, and was also known for their exuberance, raw power, and punctuality, has reunited to join a campaign to "save the world from global warming." Read about it here.

Director Rob Reiner, whose 1984 film set the bar for the "mockumentary" genre, has made a new short film called "Spinal Tap" as part of a campaign dubbed SOS/Live Earth. The band will also play in London at one of 7 Live Earth concerts on July 7.

Spinal Tap's legendary albums include "Shark Sandwich" (One review of the album was just two words: "Shit sandwich.") and "Smell the Glove," and memorable Tap songs include "Big Bottom" ("How could I leave this behind?"), "Sex Farm," and "Lick My Love Pump" (unreleased, but sort of between Mozart and Bach, like a "Mach" piece, according to guitarist and composer Nigel Tufnel, whose Marshall amps went up to a volume of 11).

I can't believe you forgot to include "Tonight I'm going to love you tonight" in your list of Spinal Tap songs.
