Best Weird Al Yankovic Songs


The Top Ten

1 White & Nerdy

This is a great song about my little brother

I'm just to white&nerdy I'm just to white&nerdy

The Blackstar one - Aquastar_of_DewClan

I had previously rewritten it as White & Girly 2.0 (the "Justice Just for Girls" Anthem Song). - welliewishersfan78

2 Amish Paradise

First weird al sing I heard but I like trapped in the drive thru better

Walking through The Valley where I harvest my grain

I like this better than gangsta's paradise. - tropicaljay

As I walk through the fields where I harvest my grain, I took a look at my wife and think she's very plain, but that's just perfect for an Amish like me. We don't need things like electricity... Ha ha. This awesome song will get you churning lots of butter.

3 Eat It

It is so funny - iliekpiez

This playoff of Michael Jackson's Beat It is so AWESOME! Eat It is really funny and I believe its probably a close 2nd behind Whit and Nerdy... But this song is still flippin awesome dudes!

Plus any MJ Parody IS AWESOME Fat is also good cause it's a parody of Bad by MJ

This is just great. It is the definition of parody. Taking something as serious as Michael Jackson's beat it, and replacing it with something a stupid as food.

It's funny cause I am one of eight kids and some are picky eaters - HaddonJordan

4 Fat

The best weird al parody of all time in my opinion. White and nerdy is good too but this one is better.

First time I saw this I thought, "HOLY COW, IS THAT REAL FAT?! "

Holy crap this is so funny

This song is both witty and amazing

5 Albuquerque

It is unlike any Weird Al, not only is it his longest piece, but it is just one big masterpiece. The stories could be broken up and make into it's own album and still be epic. - HardRockSam

This song is just brilliant. Just like that one guy at the family reunion that always brings those long, rambling stories that are just too ridiculous to be true, this song is hilarious and unbelievable, but UNLIKE those stories, this one is alright to laugh at. A lot. For all 11 minutes. At no point does it get old, and at no point do you think to yourself, "My god, when will this end? " Simply amazing all of the way through.

Eleven minutes of hilarity! I simply didn't know humour before I heard this awesome song, and now I cannot tire of its awesome hilarity!

Sometimes when he performs it live and loses his train of thought he starts over.

6 Smells Like Nirvana

Good and it's really funny how they show that if you put the right music behind it, anything sounds like nirvana

This should have a better rank.

Amazing how it makes fun of nirvana yet is still enjoyable

My favorite song. He really knows what he is singing

7 The Saga Begins


The funniest thing about the song? When my son was little, he used to sing the lyrics to this along with the song "American Pie". It actually made the original song better when Weird Al's lyrics got mixed in.

Funny thing about this song is now people get it mixed up with the original to the point where Don Mclean is actually requested to play this song at his concerts. And you know what? He plays it anyways.

All of the parodies by this guy that I've heard are better than the originals - Username123

8 Trapped In the Drive-Thru

Don't let the 10:50 running time scare you; this song flows perfectly and leaves you wanting it to go on. Hilarious! - CarlWayne1975

When he looks at me...

I force my mom to endure this song almost every night. Good times. - BeanBag343

The best part is the music video

Amazing parody..
Just listen to it

The Contenders

11 Another One Rides the Bus

This song is so hilarious, and makes me laugh every time I watch it.

I know all the words for this song.

This, surprisingly, could be in the top 10s for the best '80s song ever!

П��do do do a nother one rides the bus🎵

12 I'll Sue Ya

Anybody else want to see Zack de la Rocha himself do a cover of this song? - Gg2000

Sometimes, lawsuits can be stupid. I mean, REALLY stupid. The saddest thing is though, people actually have sued for reasons a lot like these, and they won!

I'll sue anyone who doesn't like weird al

Love this song! Haha!

13 Hardware Store

It is hard to say exactly what is being paraded here. Perhaps taking the industrial sounds and filling them with drills and mallets hitting sheets of steel. Regardless of the parody, Weird Al displays the most profound musicianship on this song. He spits fast, furious, and holds nothing back on Hardware Store.

I love the part of the song where he lists off all of the materials he would buy.

Hardware Store is a brilliant song and the GODLY part after the 2nd chorus is just amazing

A catchy, hilarious song about one of my all-time favorite films! I've gone through several "favorite Weird Al songs", and while this wasn't always my MOST favorite, it is now. I love you Weird Al!

15 Canadian Idiot

This may be a little bit offensive to you Canadians, but the most previous voter decided against it. I am not a fan of Green Day at all, and this version is the perfect parody no swear words and it has more insults. However, it is probably the most hilarious thing I have ever heard!

I'm canadian but this is flippin awesome! - hockey_rox5

This is my favorite "Weird Al" Yankovic song. Ever. It's hilarious. I feel like they're getting back at Green Day about being so rude to America.

This is an amazing song - Grumpybob

16 A Complicated Song

This is the best song, it has 3 stories. Here's 2:
1. Him and his friend having pizza
2. Weird Al loses his head

Its the best song and I don't mean best, I mean BEST! It is awesome

This is as good as white and nerdy I mean BEST

A complicated song is so hilarious!

17 Dare to Be Stupid

'Dare to Be Stupid' sounds better now than it did then! - CarlWayne1975

Put down that chainsaw and listen to this song! It’s the best Weird Al song. If I was the king of a country, this would be the national anthem.

I rewrote the song to match the lyrics of a deceased television series, Victorious, on Nickelodeon: DARE TO BE VICTORIOUS. - welliewishersfan78

I shall dare to be stupid, but not "teen titans go" stupid

Would you like regular version or extra gory version

I'm playing this on christmas.

19 Couch Potato

Weird Al Has always been great at taking serious songs and making them completely laughable. I mean, think about it. He took "Lose Yourself" by Eminem, and made it about some guy who watches too much T.V.. Really. Just... awesome.

It's actually better than Eminem

Pure genius. Great parody. - Metal_Treasure

21 Yoda

This song should be in the top 10. It's one of the best!

I met him in a swamp down in degoba where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonates soda. S-O-D-A soda. I saw the little runt sitting there on a log I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said Yoda. Y-O-D-A Yoda. - icecreammanjb

23 Word Crimes

I'm so afraid of writing something about this song and using improper English. It's an amazing parody. - CarlWayne1975

So good, it goes over many people's heads.

Oh boy, this should be number one, This should be considered education. I listened to it and it sounds a lot like what I say when I correct grammar. I really think this should be played in grammar class all over the world with the music video!

My teacher showed this on YouTube to my whole class best teacher ever - Ihaskitty1234

How else can I afford another solid-gold Humvee?!

I bet a lot of people downloaded this song!

32 I Can't Watch This

This on should be higher. It may not be my personal favorite, but the reason I like it is because it's very relatable. It's basically about there being nothing interesting on T.V.. And the funniest part is the break it down part and there's just a bunch of commercials playing in the background.

34 One More Minute

Great lyrics, but a strange love song. "I'd rather have a thousand paper cuts on my face, than spend one more minute with you! "

"I'd rather have my blood sucked out by leeches
Shove an icepick under a toenail or two
I'd rather clean all the bathrooms in Grand Central Station with my tongue
Than spend one more minute with you"

43 Foil

First one that I ever watched, and been favorite since then. Why is this so far down? I would expect top 5. - Feirceraven

Just when he stops talking about aliens invading earth, he starts talking about his hat made from foil

This is the best on Mandatory Fun. It should be in the in the top 15 at least.

This song is so funny. It should totally be number 1.

44 Everything You Know is Wrong

This song is utterly nonsensical, but that's the entire point: I always listen to this when the world around me makes absolutely no sense. The tune of this song is original and catchy, the lyrics are hilarious, and at some point in their lives everyone will be able to relate to this hilarious summary of life's inherent absurdity.
