Yankovic, of course, broke through in the 80's with "Eat It", his parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It". Since then, he's become best known for poking fun at musicians ranging from Nirvana ("Smells Like Nirvana") to TLC ("Phony Calls") to Lady Gaga ("Perform This Way"), as well as his obsessions with pop culture ("The Saga Begins", both a parody of Don McLean's "American Pie" and a tribute to "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace") and songs about food ("Living in the Fridge", which is also a parody of Aerosmith's "Living on the Edge"). But that can obscure the fact Yankovic is also a genuine music and comedy fan, as evinced by songs done in the style of artists ranging from the B-52's ("Mr. Popeil") to Devo ("Dare to be Stupid") to the Beach Boys ("Pancreas") and even Bob Dylan ("Bob").Read more ›
