Wilson had that the song for a long time. This made the rounds in the early 2000s as well.
i was playing SWTOR last night and Tom Wilson had a role in it as a gangster. He was pretty damn funny in it.

TrivWorks: Tom Wilson, who played Biff Tannen in "Back to the Future," wrote a song about answering the same fan questions for 30+ years and it's one of the greatest things available on the Internet https://t.co/AdAr546EQB


He was also awesome as Maniac in the Wing Commander games with Mark Hamill :P

He played it on the Bob & Tom Show many years ago, and they replayed it many2000 times over.

Not news.

According to the DVD audio commentary for Freaks and Geeks, Samm Levine would not STFU about Back to the Future. You could still hear the weariness in Tom's voice when he talked about him.

Heard years ago that he is quite possibly one of the nicest famous guys you're likely to meet.
Of course, that was billions of questions ago...

Rumor has it, Tom Wilson was supposed to play the villain in Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 after being cast as Nate's abrasive father. However, during filming, Tom Wilson was so damned charming (and another actor had a one-off villian they really loved) that they ended up re-writing the last few episode to give him a redemption arc and change the villians.

Old news, sure - but people REALLY think the hoverboards were real? In 19farking84?!

// do they also think Fox and Thompson had secret identical twins for the scenes they're in with older/younger versions of themselves/their kids (or is the bluescreen effect that bad that they could figure that part out)?
// I guess Tom's too nice to call people morons to their faces, but godDAMN these buttheads are morons

I remember in the late 80's or early 90's rumours making the rounds that they were indeed real but Mattel wouldn't sell them to the public because they were too dangerous.

I also remember the rumour that doritos used cow blood for an ingredient.

Old school South American mole' sauce uses chicken blood, so it was probably some short leap for a mental (short person word) to make for that rumor.

... And then there was Yellow no 5 in Mountain Dew. That made your wang shrink or something along those lines.

Pre-Internet days were great! Not like today where lies and half truths have no basis in today's society.

I recently rewatched the trilogy. Tom really is the secret MVP of the series and it's shocking his career didn't take off.

Actually I remember hearing this on Bob And Tom almost 10 years ago, and the Busey verse is there, along with an explanation as to why he hated Busey (it involves candy bars)

Ungrateful jagoff.
Nobody saw the sequels and nobody cares about Biff.

I remember that one. I heard one kid say that it was in Mellow Yellow, and that it was why he drank Mountain Dew.

I also remember hearing that they used to make cinnamon-flavored Warheads candies, but that they were discontinued because they left blisters on your tongue. A quick Google search for them reveals no relevant results, save for very recent gummy worms.

Yeah and now he's gonna have to write a song about the song.

Still kind of a dick move.  You signed up for it.  Go incognito if you don't want the attention.

I think Buford might be my favorite Tannen, Tom really should've done more Westerns.

The rumor started because a behind the scenes featurette cracked a joke about them being real, and a huge pile of children missed the joke part of it and walked away with the "real" part. (Source: was one of those kids)

Also, the Hoverboards were in 1988, not 1984, not that it matters.
