Best Songs from 'weird Al" Yankovic's Bad Hair Day

christangrant
Bad Hair Day is the 9th studio album by "Weird Al" Yankovic, released on March 12th, 1996. The album produced an array of hit comedy singles; lead single " Amish Paradise ", which lampoons both Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" and the Amish lifestyle.

The musical styles on the album are built around parodies and pastiches of pop and rock music of the mid-1990s, largely targeting alternative rock and hip-hop alike. The album also includes style parodies, imitations of specific artists like They Might Be Giants and Elvis Costello. "Amish Paradise" caused a minor controversy after rapper Coolio expressed distaste at having his song parodied by Yankovic, although the two later made amends.
