Default Weird Al Yankovic

I just got a hold of Weird Al's new album, and it kicks ass. He's so damn funny, I'd love for MADtv to have him as a guest next season, he'd be an instant hit. In the mean time, check these out, they are some of the songs off the album.

Weird Al - Complicated.mp3 5.0 MB, Parody of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated".

Weird Al - eBay.mp3 5.0MB, Parody of Backstreet Boys' "I want it that way"

Weird Al - Couch Potato.mp3 5.9MB, Parody of Eminem's "Lose Yourself".

Caution: don't wet your pants laughing!

Default Sad News for Weird Al Yankovic fans

Today I learned on the Web that the parents of Weird Al Yankovic were found dead in the house on Friday of carbon monixide poisoning.

First off, all of you guys (if you are or not fans of his money) are gonna say that this is joke.

Well, Sadly I thought so too until I discovered that E! and various newspaper reported on this tragedy which happened while he was on tour.

My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family and fans.

Ahh, that sucks. Weird Al is awesome, he must be devistated. We put carbon monoxide/smoke detectors in every room in the house several years ago, as we have a gas furnace, heater and two gas fireplaces in the house. Better safe than sorry.

Thats terrible that Weird Al's parents died.

I'm not a Weird Al fan myself but that's really sad. That'd be so hard to lose one parent, let alone both at the same time.

A message from Al:
http://www.weirdal.com/msg.htm

It comforts me a little to know he's doing OK.

Awwwww. I read it. I'm glad he's going to still go on tour and that he's doing better than expected.

We had a thread here on the forum long ago about which special guests you would like to see. I picked Weird Al, I think he would be a kickass musical guest, as well as be in a sketch or two, he's definitely got comedic talent, unlike some of the guests that MADtv brings on the show.

The best Album he ever made was "Running With Scissors" made in 1999. Awesome parodies, and awesome origionals. If any of you dont have this CD go out and buy it now.

I would freak out If they had Weird Al on MADtv as a musical guest (possibly being in some sketches?). Weird Al is my second favorite thing in the world besides MADtv.
Yes I already know that, d_dumgirl. But I thought maybe they should do another in honor of the 20th anniversary of the song "Eat It".

I would definitely buy it especially if it's a 2-CD collection.

I Like It when He Puts Parts of Songs in to one song..That's cool.

And Mad Has Corky and The Juice Pigs...Kinda Close and they are probably the next big thing if They Never have Al on.

My Favorite song that he ever sang would probably have to Be Nature Trail to hell, but My favorite song On Poodle Hat has to be Hardware Store. Simple things Amuse me...........

But In My Honest Opinion All Of Weird Al Songs Rock.

Which Brings up this story I have:

One time in Art I asked The Teacher to play Off The Deep End and I Can't Watch This was on and This kid must not be able to hear right because He actually thought that It was Can't Touch This and He was like this Song is So awesome. I had To burst His bubble and He was Like how dO You Know? And I was Like well....This IS my cd....
The Kid has an excuse for being dumb though because He LITERALLY looks like an Elf/Leprachaun...this one kid really rips on hime because of it and it is SOOOOO funny. Well That really has nothing to do with being dumb it's just an interesting Fact...

Wow he may have a comeback, I just saw his new video "Whte and Nerdy" which is a parody of Chamillioaire's song. I also am pretty damn sure Keegan and Jordan are in the video too.

Anyways, when I was a kid I always listened to Weird Al. I had a lot of his tapes, its always cool when he has a new funny song, this one was pretty good.

Yeah, that was them (I actually posted that in their threads, but deleted it once I saw this).

I like the video. It also has cameos by Seth Green and Donnie Osmond (though I don't really understand the latter). I'm definately picking up this CD.
