Parody Music



Is it just me or has it become more prevalent with the advent of YouTube? I remember Weird Al being one of the only parody artists back in the day but now we have Lil B and the countless nobodies on YouTube with serious cases of unwarranted self-importance. Discuss? Discus.

I think those types of people exist elsewhere than on Youtube, just look at Ian the Fox

Weird Al is the only person who should ever be allowed to do parodies.

If Lil B was a parody, it'd make so much more sense as to why he sucks so much

but if he's srs then lel

He's the biggest troll in rap music right now. He intentionally creates really bad/generic rap music as a form of satire to mock the current trends of modern rap and hip hop. From his own gang call (WOO) to filling his songs with terrible similes and metaphors (I look like Jesus) about pussy, money, and weed, he's pretty much nailed it and proved his point that literally anyone can get famous by following that formula these days.

His album I'm Gay is actually pretty good. Really uplifting, motivating stuff.

What about Steel Panther? They are a hilarious parody of hair metal bands.

You are missing the meaning of what a parody is. Its based on an original work, Steel Panther don't cover Hair metal songs thus they are not a parody.

I think the both of you are pretty much in agreement. My understanding is that TS is just using the word "trolling" rather liberally.

they're parodying hair metal in general, though

the art of parody is more broad than you seem to think

My only regret in life is that Weird Al was denied rights by Paul McCartney to do a cover of 'Live and Let Die' entitled 'Chicken Pot Pie'.
