Rising high up from the 80s, Weird Al Yankovic established himself to be a highly renowned comedian in the music scene, making waves of laughter, even gaining praise from notable artists who found their songs having a signature Weird Al rendition. He amassed several Grammy nominations and won five Grammy Awards including one for "Best Comedy Recording" and two for "Best Comedy Album".
Weird Al never fails to impress audiences with his hilarious comical parodies and classic medleys as he belts high notes up above as the crowd laughs, cheers, and begs for more. "There's enough people that do unfunny music" he says. He's got a powerful voice with the great power to induce joy and laughter to listeners around the globe.
From his debut single "My Bologna", a parody of The Knack's "My Sharona", Weird Al amassed a great following and positive attention from artists he makes parodies for, owing to his success and career to Dr. Demento.
His hit parodies include "Eat It" and "Fat", from Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and "Bad" respectively, "Like a Surgeon", a parody of Madonna's "Like a Virgin" which she explicitly mentioned to a friend wondering when Weird Al would make a parody of her hit song. Another hit crowd-favorite is "Smells Like Nirvana" where the band expressed they felt like they "made it" when their song was given a signature Weird Al parody at the same time the single revived his career at the time.
Other crowd favorite hits include "Jurassic Park", "Bedrock Anthem", and the certified-platinum single "White & Nerdy" – a parody of Chamillionaire's "Ridin'" to which the artist owed the success of the song leading it to win a Grammy Award to Weird Al.
