Alfred Matthew “Weird Al” Yankovic, born October 23, 1959, is widely praised as one of the greatest comedy musicians of all time. He’s best known for direct parodies that rewrite the lyrics of popular songs, but he has also written dozens of original songs.
A Lynwood, California native and graduate of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (or better known as California Polytechnic State University), “Weird Al” released his eponymous debut album in 1983. Since then, Al has released 13 more studio albums, with the latest being Mandatory Fun.
