Walsh-as-Ed appears again two episodes later on “Drew Between The Rock And A Hard Place,” during an emotional scene when Carey decides to leave The Horndogs—and is subsequently replaced on lead vocals and accordion by “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Drew’s just as downtrodden in a season-six episode, where he is too depressed to get out of bed. What cures his melancholy? An appearance from The Go-Go’s, who help him rejoin the world of the living—and then sing the show’s theme song, to boot.

In the two-part season-seven opening episode, “Drew Carey’s Back-To-School Rock ’N’ Roll Comedy Hour,” guest star Jenny McCarthy asks Oswald to introduce her to Warsaw Tavern house band Smash Mouth, performing 2001’s “Pacific Coast Party.”

Also appearing at the Warsaw in this special season-opening episode? Uncle Kracker, Sugar Ray, and Peter Frampton, the latter with Talk Box in tow and tattoo of Mimi (Kathy Kinney) on his chest…

Perhaps most impressive, however, was a season-seven episode in which Mimi has to prove how sorry she is after slighting Drew. As a result, she straps on a guitar and performs with Motorhead, naturally at deafening volumes.
