Celebrity Rock: Jailhouse Rock (1998)

These days, former Hootie & the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker is doing just fine as a solo act, crossing over onto the country charts. Here, Rucker cedes the stage to actor Woody Harrelson (ex-Cheers), and the band plays backup behind Harrelson's cover of "Jailhouse Rock" at Farm Aid in 1998.

The 2013 edition of Farm Aid took place last month in Saratoga, but no, I didn't go. No transportation, no interest. No clue as to any surreal moments like this. Come to think of it, though, had someone wanted to do a live-action "Scooby-Doo" movie back in the day, Harrelson would've been perfect as Shaggy!
