Weird Al Yankovic
Three decades after an accordion-driven Queen sendup titled Another One Rides the Bus introduced the world to Weird Al Yankovic, the master of polka and parody continues releasing records like this years Alpocalypse, which takes lighthearted jabs atamong othersLady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and, uh, Craigslist. But the visual domain is where the Curly Haired One, who turns 52 today, shines brightest, and in concert he hauls out videos of Bieber and Forest Gump to supplement his surprisingly nimble high kicks and fleet-fingered accordion shredding. If anything remains true of the onetime UHF star, its that after all these years, he and his cohorts still dont need no stinking badgers.
