"Weird Al" Yankovic

You know him, you love him (and if you don’t, he will find you), you’ve probably heard of him. And if you haven’t heard of him, the door’s that way. In my opinion, his parodies are 95% of the time better than the original songs. Also…


He totally voiced a garbage truck. Why not discuss his musical exploits?

He had some good songs, ad definitely helped set the tone of the Junkions in the G1 movie with Dare to be Stupid. Having him come back and Voice Wreck-Gar in Animated was a nice touch.

I’ve liked him for almost the last ten years and I think one of my favorite aspects about his songs is that a lot of the times I enjoy the parody more than the original. :smiley:

Any UHF fans here?

I knew he was Yugoslavian by descent, one of my extended families surnames is Janković, or as the mericans say it, Yankovic.

Great song and all, but definitively not his best.
He has 164 songs, 1 bonus track and 1 cut song to choose from. Of course it is a music video which is easier access. So whatever I guess. :smile:
