#5 Favorite Album

In 3-D - "Weird Al" Yankovic

Weird Al is a phenomenon. He has made a 30-year career in a genre where most people are one-hit wonders at best. “Straight Outta Lynwood,” his most recent album, may be his most popular. But his first big hit, “Eat It,” a parody of Michael Jackson's “Beat It,” reached 12th on the charts. It appeared on this, his second album. Yankovic needed to be on this list somewhere, but it's a toss-up between those two albums. Both are a hoot, as are another three or four of his albums.
