Top 10 Songs Where the Music Artists Were Just Having Some Fun

There are several signs that music artists were just having some fun. Not always but it's usually when a song is far from the usual genre/style of the artist - music or lyrics (or both) are very different.
The Top Ten
1 Big Balls - AC/DC

"For the last time, the song is about ballrooms! ". I love this song, as innuendos fill every single line of lyrics.

How about every single Steel Panther song ever... but yeah, this one by AC/DC is an obvious too.

2 Hocus Pocus - Focus

When a progressive rock band makes a song with yodeling (LOL) and meaningless lyrics, you know they were just having some fun. This song became their most popular song.
What's yodeling? Play the song sample and check out this list - Top 10 Songs with Yodeling

3 Oops!...I Did It Again - Children of Bodom

A death metal band covering Britney Spears? Sounds like having fun.

4 Money - Gamma Ray

I like this pirate alike heavy metal song, it's funny as hell.

5 Surfin' Bird - Sodom

What reason a thrash metal band would have to cover this song? It's nowhere near thrash. The only reason is having fun. Moreover, the name of the original band is The Trashmen (trash, thrash).

6 Hocus Pocus - Iron Maiden

This song is a Focus cover - the original was already mentioned: the song is funny and it was strange a progressive rock band made a song of this type.
When an elite metal band covers this song it's obviously for fun, too. Basically drummer Nicko McBrain was having fun - he was the "lead singer" and added some funny lines (I.e. intentionally more meaningless) to the original lyrics...LOL

7 What If? - Guttermouth
8 Baby One More Time - Dweezil and Ahmet Zappa

Britney Spears in the good hands of the Zappa family...

9 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy

A metal band makes an original Christmas song (not a cover). You know Christmas themes aren't typical in metal and lyrics of this song are far from the band style.
Besides, lyrics aren't typical Christmas lyrics either - in this song Santa and all holiday heroes live in the US circa 2010. And the Christmas heroes have problems...

10 Toxic - Trollfest
The Contenders
11 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj

It wasn't even be made to be taken seriously. It was just a diss track. The song is seriously overhated.

12 Fack - Eminem

Honestly, I understand why people hate this song, but it's so damn terrible it's hilarious to me. I think Em was not thinking when he made this, and intentionally dropped one of the most randomly terrible yet funny songs ever.

13 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson
14 You are a Pirate - Alestorm

A cover of a song from LazyTown, before the memes too.

15 Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen
16 Der Jegermeister - Trollfest
17 Die Jbg3 Weihnachtsgeschichte - Kollegah & Farid Bang

With "Jung brutal gutaussehend 3" the two rappers have just released probably the most anticipated German hip hop album of the year, a sinister, dark and fairly brutal record that overall lives from creating an intense and menacing atmosphere... and then they released "The JBG3 Christmas Story" about two weeks to three weeks later, which basically ironically shows how thugs celebrate Christmas (for example with Farid Bang dressing up as Santa Clause and then stealing from the house he's in - which turns out to be Kollegah's). It doesn't take itself seriously at all and was probably purely the result of them fooling around in the studio.

18 All by Myself - Green Day
19 #selfie - The Chainsmokers
20 The Neden Game - Insane Clown Posse
21 Sunlight - Bag Raiders
22 Hocus Pocus - Helloween

Another Focus cover where a metal singer is yodeling! LOL.
Iron Maiden didn't do the yodeling part because I guess nobody in the band was able to. But apparently Andi Deris of Helloween can yodel. Who knew it!

23 All the Small Things - Blink-182
24 Dominated Love Slave - Green Day
25 Lookin' Out My Back Door - Children of Bodom

A death metal band covers a song originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Play the sample and watch the video clip to be convinced they did it for fun.
