"Weird Al" Yankovic is a popular Parody Artist.


Born on October 23, 1959 and raised in the town of Lynwood, Al developed an interest in the accordion when he was six. His influcenes in music were Tom Lehrer, Stan Freberg, Spike Jones, Allan Sherman, Shel Silverstein and Frank Zappa "and all the other wonderfully sick and twisted artists that he was exposed to through the Dr. Demento Radio Show." Sources of inspiration for his comedy come from Mad magazine, Monty Python, and the Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker parody movies. In 1979, Al wrote a parody of "My Sharona" by The Knack, and got good feedback after Radio host Dr. Demento played it. In 1983, he released his first album, "Weird Al" Yankovic. Since then, he has been writing various parodies of others' song. Some his famous parodies include "Fat" a parody of "Bad" by Michael Jackson, "White and Nerdy" a parody of "Riding Dirty" by Chamillionaire, and "Perform this Way" a parody of "Born this Way" by Lady Gaga.
