Review Summary: Oh man

Weird Al is a household name. Everybody knows some Weird Al songs. But how many people have actually heard a whole album by him? Well if you haven't then you have failed at life, but don't worry because this is the best place to start for you new fans out there. Bad Hair Day is known for having the classics: Amish Paradise and Gump, but it is so much more. It's an album that covers the whole emotion spectrum. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll pee. oh man if this isn't the best album of all time then I must be listening wrong.

The album starts off with the classic everybody knows, Amish Paradise. This song is so good it started to out sell the song it parodies and Coolio threw a bitch fit and got mad at Al. But Al stood strong and look who is still around today. You don't see Coolio much do you. That 's karma for you I guess.

These songs will get stuck in your head all day. The first time you hear Everything You Know Is Wrong you will have it in your head forever. Even if you got amnesia you would still remember it, that's how catchy it is.

Weird Al then takes a really gay U2 song and makes it awesome. Nobody else on the planet is capable of this feat. Listening to the original song was like taking a 6 inch rod into your ear, but Al worked his magic and made a masterpiece out of some garbage.

The next song is a polka jam. Listening to the polka jam is like listening to an alt rock station on the radio when you're plastered. which is pretty much every night for me.
Weird Al breaks up the pace with the original a cappella track since you've been gone, not to be confused with the song with the same name by that fat american idol lady. Weird Al is an accordion virtuoso. I know what you're thinking, isn't the accordion an instrument for peckers? Well that's how much of a musical genius Al is, he can turn a silly instrument like the Accordion into a shred machine. Oh man he shreds on that thing. He is the Dimebag Darrel of accordion is what I'm trying to say.

Oh man, let's talk about Gump. Gump is the best song ever made. I've heard it over 1000 times and it still sounds fresh, just check out these lyrics, "he told JFK he had to pee" I don't even have words to describe why that is so good, so I won't try. Gump is so short you should listen to it 3 or 4 times in a row before moving on to the next track by the way.

I'm so sick of you is ironically titled because you will never get sick of this album.

Bad Hair Day's only flaw is that it's too damn short. I have to listen to it twice in a row usually. But I can't complain because it is a perfect album.

Syndicated Inc. will make you cry. It makes me cry and I didn't even cry when I saw Toy Story 3, so you know I mean business.

Put some candles on when you listen to Phone Calls, because man is it relaxing. I almost fell asleep to it a couple times, but like in a good way, not in the way that U2 puts me to sleep.
The last song is a christmas song, and man oh man is it a great song to get plastered to on christmas day. it's a parody of that song by that black girl rap group TMZ and it's great. It even has a Simpsons sample so you know this song is funny.

Weird Al has released a lot of material, but this is no doubt his mangos opus. It's an album you can put in your car and do donuts to, it's an album you can get drunk to, hell I even lost my virginity to this album. It's an all around masterpiece for the ages that you all should hear. Bad Hair Day, the greatest album of all time.
