If you are a fan of Weird Al, do yourself a favor and watch Weird: The Al Yankovic story

Just finished it. As someone who’s been working on parodies and the like since I was a kid, it was awesome. I grew up on Weird Al. I Remember listening to Running with Scissors

Every morning with my best friend during carpool.

I knew every word to Amish Paradise, The Saga Begins, White and Nerdy, etc.

I celebrate the man’s entire catalog. I don’t know anyone who dislikes Weird Al. If you do there is something wrong with your soul.

His music bridges generations. My kids will ask me to play “Trapped in the Drive Thru” over and over and we’ll all laugh, just like I did as a kid.

And the man himself is just solid through and through.

The Weird Al Show still holds up as well.

Daniel Radcliffe and Rainn Wilson were solid in the movie and there are a ton of cameos. I won’t spoil it but it’s worth the watch, easily.

What were your favorite Weird Al songs?

Here’s some great ones
White and Nerdy
Foil
The Night Santa Went Crazy


The man is just a phenomenal talent and an inspiration

I wouldn't voluntarily listen to it. I have a friend who is all about him, so when we go on a ride I take over the stereo.

So many great songs I loved him at ten and still love him in my 30s. The man is a national treasure.

Albuquerque is his GOAT song

I loved that song so much in the third grade that I traded some kid for New Mexico for my state project.

He was like….

I've watched it twice! It was just as funny the second time.

Well, now you do, because Weird Al sucks. Never understood his appeal. He's like the world's shittiest mad-libbing song thief. A talentless hack.

Same. I had an uncle who could be a little goofy and he put us on to Dr. Demento.My brother and I used to listen to him.

“They’re coming to come take me away, haha” still creeps me the frick out.
