It’s the longest running “joke” in rock. Since April 1973, at what seems like every concert, there’s always some asshat who won’t stop screaming “Play Freebird!” at the top of his or her lungs. It’s almost expected and 99.99% of the time the song doesn’t get played.

Enter Bob Dylan. A man who was filling concert halls 14 years before the boys in Lynyrd Skynyrd introduced us to “Freebird.” Who knows how many times Dylan has ignored this request in the past?

Pfft. Play Freebird. I mean have some f***ing respect! You’re at a Bob Dylan show.

Turns out Bob and his band have a better sense of humour than I do. They freakin’ played it!

Check it out.
