Best "Weird Al" Yankovic Songs
The Top Ten
They see me mowing, my front lawn, I know that they're all thinking I'm so white and nerdy. Haha gotta love Weird Al.
My all time favorite. The music video is highly brilliant, the lyrics as well, this is Weird Al's BEST work.
I had previously rewritten it as White & Girly 2.0 (the "Justice Just for Girls" Anthem Song).
Nerds and geeks alike let the world know we're white and nerdy and were proud
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.
Even though Coolio wasn't happy about Al doing' a parody of his "Gansta's Paradise", I thought this was one of the greater parodies Al has done!
I always laugh so hard during this parody. The originality is outstanding.
First weird al sing I heard but I like trapped in the drive thru better
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
First song I ever heard from him and still my favorite
The best weird al parody of all time in my opinion. White and nerdy is good too but this one is better.
This is not better than white and nerdy
This song is both witty and amazing
Holy crap this is so funny
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.
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.
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.
The original is 50 times beter this one, but even this is stil yankovic material. This should be number 0ne because nirvana ROCKS!
Amazing how it makes fun of nirvana yet is still enjoyable
My favorite song. He really knows what he is singing
This should have a better rank.
I don't know why but this has always been a favorite of mine
One of my favorites
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
Why is Perform this way higher then the saga begins?
Don't let the 10:50 running time scare you; this song flows perfectly and leaves you wanting it to go on. Hilarious!
In my opion, this on is totally hilarious. My dad plays it evrytime we go to the drive thru, and we always laugh really hard.
I force my mom to endure this song almost every night. Good times.
The best part is the music video
This song is so hilarious, and makes me laugh every time I watch it.
This, surprisingly, could be in the top 10s for the best '80s song ever!
I know all the words for this song.
No other comment.
I was the highest bidder for a hot wheels "Bully Goat" car on eBay and now it's time to celebrate with this song. (Note to self get alpocalypse on eBay as well)
Just listen to it
Just wow and I love eBay.
I bought it on eBay
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!
Anybody else want to see Zack de la Rocha himself do a cover of this song?
Great rage against the machine inspired song
I'll sue anyone who doesn't like weird al
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.
A better Devo song than Devo did. My favourite Weird Al song!
I shall dare to be stupid, but not "teen titans go" stupid
'Dare to Be Stupid' sounds better now than it did then!
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!
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
It's 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!
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.
Hardware Store is a brilliant song and the GODLY part after the 2nd chorus is just amazing
I love the part of the song where he lists off all of the materials he would buy.
Great song. the guy isn't just funny, he is an awesome musician
Greatest Christmas song and his best original song ever.
Would you like regular version or extra gory version
I'm playing this on christmas.
This is so dark. I love it.
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!
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
I'm canadian but this is flippin awesome!
The wonderful contrast between the touching tone of the music and the absurdity of the lyrics.
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.
This song should be in the top 10. It's one of the best!
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.
Haha love this one
I pissed my pants
this video almost made me pee my pants it was so funny like when he had a porcupine on his head and at the end when he does those moves
So funny should be higher
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!
I'm so afraid of writing something about this song and using improper English. It's an amazing parody.
My teacher showed this on YouTube to my whole class best teacher ever
This song should be used in schools everywhere
