I did mean Grammys obviously, but Wesley Willis is a god of music. Anyone who has a whole song about how Batman was "being such a jackoff" and then was forced to throw Batman to the floor is a badass.

Basically, the deal with Wesley Willis is he's a schizophrenic who makes music to make the voices in his head go away, literally. His songs are basically all written to the same formula, so that if you know the formula, you could easily make one up off the top of your head. Now, I realize that this might sound like a joke (and there are people who laugh at him), but the formula works and it lets him tell the listener about everything that's happening in his life, whether it's going to a concert ("The crowd roared like a lion, the band played it on! The rock show whipped a camel's ass) or he's going through a serious psychotic episode.

I think I have a link to some mp3s of his, but I'm not on my home computer at the moment so it's not here. If you're interested, remind me.

"Rock over London, Rock on Chicago..."

I wholeheartedly agree with Scott there that Wesley is a god among men when it comes to music. His songs are so insane I can't help but like them.
