Trivia / Todd Rundgren

  • Black Sheep Hit: "Bang the Drum All Day" isn't very typical of his work.
  • Critical Dissonance: Critics didn't like Todd Rundgren's Utopia very much, but it's the second best selling Utopia album and Progressive Rock fans still love it.
  • Hipgnosis: Did the cover art for the 1978 Live Album Back to the Bars.
  • One of Us: The reason he became a Record Producer is because he was dissatisfied with the production on Nazz' work and wanted to do a better job for others. He also considered becoming a computer programmer for a time in the late 1960s/early 1970s.
  • Real Song Theme Tune:
    • At home games at Lambeau Field, "Bang The Drum All Day" is played every time the Green Bay Packers score a touchdown.
    • Wayne Gladstone uses a snippet of Utopia's "Everybody Else Is Wrong" as his intro for his Cracked series Hate by Numbers.
