"Helloooo Cleveland" Explained

Every wonder why rock-and-rolll types think it's hilarious to work "Hello Cleveland!" into their columns at every given opportunity? It's not just 'cuz we love Cleveland (we do), and not just 'cuz Cleveland rocks (it does), and not just 'cuz we love to hear ourselves type (we really do). It's one of the classic lines from Spinal Tap, which was the definitive music mockumentary before Martin Scorcese's Bob Dylan: No Direction Home , a compelling yet futile argument that Dylan's music is worth listening to. There it is. So for now: Goodbye, Cleveland. -- D.X. Ferris
