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 Big Balls - AC/DC Cover Art

"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 Hocus Pocus - Focus Cover Art

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

I like this song

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

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

It's so weird to imagine a metal musician saying 'oops! '!

Just imagine Zakk Wylde saying 'oops'

4 Money - Gamma Ray Money - Gamma Ray Cover Art

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

What can I say? Only LOL (Gamma Ray are a metal band).

5 Surfin' Bird - Sodom Surfin' Bird - Sodom Cover Art

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).

The only one on the list I've heard, and I don't wanna add another.

I think even the Trashmen back in 1963 meant this song as a joke

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

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

9 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy Cover Art

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 Toxic - Trollfest Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj Cover Art

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

This is really funny!

This song deserves all the hate it gets for being an annoying and awful song I don't care if it isn't "meant to be taken seriously" its still awful regardless Disstracks can be good (Real Muthaphuckin Gs by Eazy E and No Vasilne by Ice Cube are examples) but this is NOT how you do it

12 Fack - Eminem Fack - Eminem Cover Art

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 Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Cover Art
14 You are a Pirate - Alestorm

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

15 Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen Surfin' Bird - The Trashmen Cover Art
16 Der Jegermeister - Trollfest Der Jegermeister - Trollfest Cover Art

Just play the song sample

17 Die Jbg3 Weihnachtsgeschichte - Kollegah & Farid Bang Die Jbg3 Weihnachtsgeschichte - Kollegah & Farid Bang Cover Art

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 All by Myself - Green Day Cover Art
19 #selfie - The Chainsmokers #selfie - The Chainsmokers Cover Art
20 The Neden Game - Insane Clown Posse The Neden Game - Insane Clown Posse Cover Art

Really, this song... is the funniest thing ever recorded. Also because it's on one of their most serious albums. - Martin_Canine

21 Hocus Pocus - Helloween Hocus Pocus - Helloween Cover Art

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! - Metal_Treasure

22 Sunlight - Bag Raiders Sunlight - Bag Raiders Cover Art
23 All the Small Things - Blink-182 All the Small Things - Blink-182 Cover Art

Why is this on here?

24 Dominated Love Slave - Green Day Dominated Love Slave - Green Day Cover Art
25 Lookin' Out My Back Door - Children of Bodom Lookin' Out My Back Door - Children of Bodom Cover Art

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. - Metal_Treasure
