Today is the first night of Zappadan, also known as Bummernacht, the night after the last day (1993) that Frank Zappa refused to die. Zappadan is an annual internet festival which runs until Frank's birthday (Day Zero) on December 21.

We don't let Frank Zappa rest in peace, figgering he wouldn't want it that way.

And don't get me started about the war on Zappadan -- it's a philosophy, not a religion.

If you've got a favorite Zappa number share it in comments.

Can you help us out?
