Weird Al Yankovic is a musician made popular for his song parodies of current popular songs. His satirical cover songs are set to the same melody and music, with lyrics either poking fun at the artists he is covering, the lyrical content of the original song, or some other relevant social issue. He got his start by featuring one of his parody songs on the Los Angeles radio program hosted by Dr. Demento, and has been covering songs ever since. He has extended his career into the realm of directing, writing, and producing.
