In popular cultureEdit

An infomercial for the event was released online by Psychopathic Records.[6] On December 5, 2009, Saturday Night Live aired a sketch titled "Kickspit Underground Rock Festival", which parodied the infomercial.[6] Bruce stated that he was not offended by the parody, and that he thought that the sketch was "hilarious" and "a humongous compliment".[6]
