Top 10 Songs Where the Music Artists Were Just Having Some FunThere 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
"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.
A death metal band covering Britney Spears? Sounds like having fun.
It's so weird to imagine a metal musician saying 'oops! '..lol!
Just imagine Zakk Wylde saying 'oops'
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
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).
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
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
Britney Spears in the good hands of the Zappa family...
It wasn’t even be made to be taken seriously. It was just a diss track. The song is seriously overhated.
Doesn't change the fact that it still sucks and deserves its hate.
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
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...
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.
Just play the song sample
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.
A cover of a song from LazyTown, before the memes too.
