After playing together for more than 40 years, ironically, Blue Öyster Cult have reached the point where they do need to fear the reaper. They donā€™t, however, need to worry about their legacy, which is well cemented. They were one of the bands that lent a literary edge to heavy-metal songwritingā€”they were also the first to boast the non-sensical umlaut for no good reason, a move that would later be appropriated by bands from Queensr’che to Mötley Crüe. Of course, to a younger generation, their legacy is the cowbell, which was featured on their signature song ā€œ(Donā€™t Fear) The Reaper,ā€ albeit not to the extent popular ā€œSaturday Night Liveā€ Gene Frenkle sketch surmised. The guys do a 9 p.m. show at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino.
