Biography

The time has come. “Weird Al” Yankovic, the biggest selling comedy recording artist of all time, has returned to demolish the pop landscape with Alpocalypse, his first full-length studio album in nearly five years.

Few would have guessed that Yankovic, who as an awkward, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending in homemade tapes to the Dr. Demento Radio Show, would ... Read more in Amazon's Weird Al Yankovic Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly good, but not his best album 21 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The album starts as it means to go on with a fantastic parody of Beat it by Michael Jackson. The album has a good mix between parodies and original songs and even includes one of Weird Al's trade mark polka's, where he combines the likes of The Doors, The Police and The Clash into one fast paced rollercoaster of a song. If you only buy one Weird Al album, make it Running With Scissors, but for a fan, this is a must buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satan Eats Cheez Whizz 11 May 2003
By "adman5189" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
So... In 3-D. A very good Al-bum with six really good songs, three mediocre/bad ones and two pretty good ones.
1. Eat It - 5/5. Classic. Nuff said
2. Midnight Star - 5/5. Hilarious song about a tabliod newpaper. Contains the immortal line: "They're keeping Hitler's brain alive inside a jar". Good tune, also.
3. Brady Bunch - 4/5. I can relate to this one.
4. Buy Me A Condo - 2/5. Ok, at best
5. I Lost On Jeopardy - 5/5. Another great one. Music video is very funny.
6. Polkas On 45 - 5/5. One of his best polkas. Al creates polka versions of classic rock songs.
7. Mr. Popeil - 1/5. Every Al-bum has one of these.
8. King Of Suede - 4/5. Funny Police parody.
9. That Boy Could Dance - 3/5. Okay.
10. Theme From Rocky VIII (Rye Or The Kaiser) - 5/5. Great parody of the Rocky films, and another great food song.
11. Nature Trail To Hell - 5/5. Hilarious satire on those stupid teen slasher films. A great epic (six minutes in length) with cool music and a hilarious backwards line: "Satan eats Cheez Wiz". People who find this offensive and potty-mouthed, should either get a life, or watch a Quentin Taratino film, whatever comes first.
So, this is worth buying for: "Eat It", "Midnight Star", "I Lost On Jeopardy", "Polkas On 45" "Theme From Rocky VIII (Rye Or The Kaiser)", and "Nature Trail To Hell".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Demented Retromaniac's Dream 3 Feb 2000
By stephanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I'm demented, yes, I'm stuck in the '80s, and yes, I've listened to this album about 3,546,034,002 times, and I think it's one of his best. "Nature Trail to Hell" is ingenius musically. Yes, it's twisted and morbid and has a lot of screaming, but it has the most bizarre instrumentation. I've never heard anything like it before. "The Brady Bunch," a parody of "The Safety Dance" (and '80s classic), is a very unlikely combination, but that's what makes it work. Personally, I think it should've been a single. I can relate to "Midnight Star" because I was a cashier, and when I wasn't checking out customers, I was laughing at the tabloids, which is what "Midnight Star" is mocking. My other favorite is "Polkas on 45" which includes Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (I doubt I spelled that right) and a Devo song who's name I'm not sure of. Call me uncommercial, but I could do without "Eat It," but I'm sure Al would disagree with me. If it weren't for that single, we couldn't call him the "Eat It" guy. Overall, this is a great album, and I think the title, though dated (who wear 3-D glasses anymore?) is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch this... I mean listen to this... In 3D! 13 Nov 2003
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Weird Al's second album shows him in great form. The food songs, songs on TV, and song send-ups, social commentary, silly lip music, and silly noises, are all there, but there is also featured a Weird Al standard present in nearly every album. I'll get to that later.
"Eat It" is the first Michael Jackson song to be sent up--"Fat" would be done on the Even Worse album. Here though, the booming synths and guitars are replicated by Al's group of musicians instead of the accordion: "Eat it/eat it/get yourself an egg and beat it/have some more chicken have some more pie/it doesn't matter if it's boiled or fried." There's a great approximation to Eddie Van Halen's guitar solo here.
Bright 80's keyboards start "Midnight Star," about the nonsense found in supermarket tabloids, such as one's pets being extraterrestrial and most important, the story of the man born without a head, that the Incredible Frog Boy is on the loose again. I myself wonder what makes people want to read this rubbish in the first place. They can't have much circulation, but if they do, small wonder the average IQ of this country is in double digits.
Al's observations on TV shows and the stunning variety of programmes is a constant theme in his music. "The Brady Bunch," which is a send-up of Men Without Hats' "The Safety Dance" mentions Mr. Rogers, Three's Company, Barney Miller, MTV, the Addams Family and sundry others before later singing the theme song to the Brady Bunch in the later verse. His comment: "You can watch TV till your eyes fall out of your head" and "television is taking its toll" is a well-known observation on how much TV Americans watch.
"Buy Me A Condo" is Al's poke at reggae, about a Jamaican guy who decides to give up island living, go to New York, cut off his dreads, wallet full of credit cards, get the T-shirt with the alligator on, and basically conform to what Randolph Bourne referred to as the tasteless grey sludge, i.e. the melting pot.
"I Lost On Jeopardy" is another TV song, but this time from the point of view of a game show contestant. Why bother humiliating oneself? As the spoken voiceover says, "You lost and let me tell you what you didn't win: a 20-volume set of the Encyclopedia International, a case of turtle wax, and a year's supply of Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco treat, but that's not all. You also made yourself look like a jerk in front of millions of people and you bought shame and disgrace on your family for generations to come. ....You're a complete loser!"
"Polkas on 45" is the first Weird Al polka medley, with accordion, silly noises, taken from key verses from well-known songs and strung together. Here's what he does: Devo's "Are We Not Men: We Are Devo", Deep Purple's "Smoke On the Water", Berlin's "Sex, I'm A...", Beatles, "Hey Jude", The Doors' "L.A. Woman", Iron Butterfly's "In A Gadda-Da-Vida", Jimi Hendrix's "Hey Joe", Talking Heads' "Burning Down The House", Foreigner's "Hot Blooded", The Police's "Every Breath You Take", The Clash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", The Rolling Stones' "Jumpin' Jack Flash", The Who's "My Generation."
"Mr. Popeil" is another TV song, about those commercials introducing those brand new time-saving gadgets, like Vegematics. "Please no CODs, don't miss out on these deals."
"King Of Suede" sends up The Police's "King Of Pain" with a clothing sale motif. Instead of "That's my soul up there" refrain, we get "Is my size up there?"
"That Boy Could Dance" has a great rhythm and some funny lyrics. "Theme From Rocky XIII" is a parody of Survivor's "Eye Of The Tiger" and with three Rocky movies done by 1984, is a look at a future Rocky Balboa, who "sold his gloves, threw his eggs down the drain", and runs the neighborhood deli. "But you just can't go wrong with the rye... or the Kaiser" goes a sample refrain.
"Nature Trail From Hell" is a song built around a movie trailer for cheesy teen horror films. Al evolves from his debut with silly and funny results. Next up, my personal favourite Weird Al CD, Dare To Be Stupid.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Polka down with your bad self." 25 Mar 2005
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was "Weird Al's" breakthrough album. This was the first album to feature Al's touring band of guitarist Jim West, bassist Steve Jay and drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz. The album opens with Al's biggest hit, "Eat It". There are four other great parodies of then recent hits, including the chart singles "King of Suede" and "I Lost on Jeopardy". Al also wrote five funny original songs on this album. "Midnight Star" is a hilarious song about tabloid newspapers. "Buy Me a Condo" is a reggae song about a Jamaican trying to assimilate in America. "Mr. Popeil" is a funny song about the creator of Veg-a-matic and many other "as seen on TV" products (Popeil's daughter actually sings background vocals on this song). "That Boy Could Dance" is about a dorky guy who was a good dancer, and it's probably my least favorite song on the album (but still pretty good). "Nature Trail To Hell" is a great song that is a parody of horror movie trailers. The album also features Al's first polka style medley of rock songs, "Polkas on 45". He continued to do a polka medley on virtually all his albums. This is a great album that Al's fans will love.

"Now how much would you pay?"

3.0 out of 5 stars I'VE GOT A SECRET! 31 July 2000
By Matt Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just wanted to let you guys in on a little secret I discovered:
Way back when this album came out (and I was 13), there was a lot of talk in the media about bands using "backwards masking" - the technique of putting backwards messages into music - to send secret subversive messages to their listeners. The Religious Right/Southern Baptists made a HUGE deal out of this (of course), claiming that metal bands were putting backwards-masked Satanic messages on their albums to recruit fair, young Christians down the dark path! There wasn't a shred of truth to the claims (isn't lying a "sin" or something . . ?), and in the end all the Jesus-Freaks' bellowing accomlished was to make Ozzy Osbourne a household name and a VERY rich man - idiots!
Anyway, Al makes fun of the Religious Right's album-burning dementia by inserting his own "Satanic" backwards message in "Nature Trail to Hell"!
Listen to "Nature . . ." again - hear that low, mumbled voice after the guitar solo? If you play it backwards (which I did by spinning the album backwards on dad's turntable - remember those?) that mumbling turns into Al's voice as he manacingly declares, "SATAN EATS CHEEZ WHIZ! " Hysterical!
To all the fanatics and whiners who have a problem with this:
PLEASE TRY TO DEVELOP A SENSE OF HUMOR! IF YOU THINK YOUR KIDS WOULD BE WARPED BY "NATURE TRAIL TO HELL" (forwards or backwards) THEN YOU HAVE COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE A KID - CALM DOWN! JEEZ!
