On May 20th, Weird Al Yankovic releases "Poodle Hat", his first new album in 4 years. According to Rolling Stone (rollingstone.com), the album will have the following songs.
Parodies: Couch Potato, a parody of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" Trash Day, a parody of Nelly's "Hot In Herre" A Complicated Song, a parody of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" Ode To A Superhero, a parody of Billy Joel's "Piano Man" E-Bay, a parody of the Backstreet Boy's "I Want It That Way"
Originals: "Hardware Store", "Party At The Leper Colony", "Wanna B Ur Lover" (probably about online romance), "Bob", "Genius In France" (most likely about Jerry Lewis
and the obligatory polka medley, "Angry White Boy Polka", featuring snippets of songs from Papa Roach, System Of A Down, The Vines, The Hives, The White Stripes, The Strokes, Disturbed, Rage Against The Machine, Limp Bizkit, Staind, Kid Rock, P.O.D., and Eminem.
Personally, I think this'll be a good album, and the polka medley could be the best he's ever done.

This is all kinds of awesome. Al's polka medley on "Bad Hair Day" was my revenge against all the godawful alternative on my college radio station back in the day; to hear him rib the Limp Bizkits of the world will kick much arse.

There's very short clip of the Eminem parody on MTV.com.
CHRISTIAN,n. 1. One who believes that the New Testament is a divinely inspired book admirably suited to the spiritual needs of his neighbor. 2. One who follows the teachings of Christ in so far as they are not inconsistent with a life of sin.
The entire "Couch Potato" single is available right here. Personally, I think he's outdone himself. The sheer number of references in this track makes it damn near impossible to even keep up with it.

Once again, Eminem proves himself to be an ass. C'mon, even MICHAEL JACKSON allowed Al to spoof him in a video (twice!)

Really, if they told you that SARS was being pumped through the ventilation system into every theatre in which this was being shown, would you be any less likely to go see it?-- review of 'Daddy Day Care' at fametracker.com
I gotta admit that I helped this week, having purchased #3 on the Rock list Scars by Papa Roach. I probably shouldn't admit that I purchased #6 on the pop chart Behind These Hazel Eyes by Kelly Clarkson.
