New Weird Al Yankovic Album!!!
 
Well the new Video for Weird Al is on the Nerdist but is completely borked cause the server can't handle the traffic going to it. It has a bunch of cameos in it and I thought it was pretty funny

http://www.nerdist.com/vepisode/weir...arrells-happy/

Since this site is dead.....He has it directly on his site. http://www.weirdal.com/

But I guess someone loaded the songs up to daily motion so you can hear them all.

Here is one that needs to be played at Chiefs games

It's really insane when you think about it. Who else is out there that had a 30-year career in the music industry? He's never been a superstar, but he's never really had a total clunker of an album that entire time.

At this point I think most artists kind of take it as a honor when he parodies one of their songs. With a few exceptions.... Coolio.

Don't artists have to give him permission first to make the parody?

Or was it not needed for Gangster/Amish Paradise because it already heavily sampled Stevie wonder?

You need zero permission to make a parody.

Al asks for it because he's a swell guy.

There was a misunderstanding between Al's people and Coolio's people. Al thought he had permission, but Coolio didn't give it. There are no legal repercussions for Al - you don't need permission from artists to parody - but it's not his style to piss artists off.

Weird Al kicks ass. He said he was at Princes table at the VMA's in the 80's and Princes body Guards made him sign a concent that he wouldn't make eye contact with prince. Weird Al has some stories about lots artists that is for sure.

alnorth 07-14-2014 09:44 PM

yeah, the Supreme Court specifically ruled on parody long ago, saying they are protected free speech, even if you make money on parodies.

Weird Al has always said that he wants to go the extra mile to get permission because he doesn't want to piss off the artist and make sure they are in on the joke. I'm sure he really does feel that way to some extent, but its also probably good business. Even if you are certain you'll win in court, you don't really "win" if you had to spend a fortune fighting a lawsuit from some angry demented musician with plenty of money to burn.

Nope.

I grew up listening to him casually like most children of the 80's.

It was just a joke.

He's reportedly one of the nicest guys around, so I am happy to see he's still having success and doing his thing as an artist with a unique slant on meshing of the mediums.


For the record, I was insanely obsessed with seeing UHF the moment I first saw the previews, and remember distinctly my joy of seeing it at the old Crown Center theaters on a Saturday matinée opening weekend.

You're a very, very, very lucky little boy. You know why? You get to drink from... THE FIRE HOOOOOSE!!!

Troll not.
