Alpocalypse by "Weird Al" Yankovic
Released: Jun 2011
Label: VOLCANO
The de facto king of the song parody's 13th album -- his first since 2006 -- Alpocalypse features the characteristically sniper-accurate re-animations and eviscerations of popular acts shot through with alternately absurd and smartly sarcastic lyrics. "CNR," a de(con)struction of The White Stripes, is almost too perfect; meanwhile, a Doors parody about Craigslist is both hilarious and oddly insightful, and maybe even a little creepy. Yankovic's accordion finally shows up on the brilliant mash-up of damn near everything, "Polka Face."
