Duff Beer Song – The Simpsons
In an ESPN.com column he wrote:
My name is Duff McKagan, and I play rock and roll music. The beer on "The Simpsons" show was named after me, and not the other way around. (I suppose it is a testament to how much alcohol I used to drink. Yeah, not too sexy really.)
”Our management for GN’R got a fax but it was from like an adult cartoon. Now there wasn’t any adult cartoons in 1988. There just wasn’t and like, ‘an adult cartoon?’ They want to use your name as the name of the beer on the thing and they just want your blessing. It’s not like I own the name Duff, I should’ve trademarked that thing on up if I would’ve known but yeah, that think took off, that Simpsons deal.”
And here’s how he put it in his autobiography:
When Guns N’ Roses began to break into the public consciousness, I was known as a big drinker. In 1988, MTV aired a concert in which Axl introduced me – as usual – as Duff “the King of Beets” McKagan. Soon after this, a production company working on a new animated series called me to ask if they could use the name “Duff” for a brand of beer in the show. I laughed and said of course, no problem. The whole thing sounded like a low-rent art project or something – I mean, who made cartoons for adults? Little did I know that the show would become The Simpsons and that within a few years I would start to see Duff beer glasses and gear everywhere we toured.
