Kurt Cobain went on record saying that he didn't realize that they had "made it" until Weird Al asked for permission to do a parody. The Prince of Parody should make it in at some point, I think. Posted by K-Money on Sunday, Al, and his band, are excellent musicians who can adapt to many different genres and styles. Many bands have a sound, Al's has many sounds. Additionally, Al is a powerful lyricist.

Feel free to add on if you wish. Posted by Cheesecrop on Wednesday, What is more indicative of the exalted position of rock 'n' roll than the presence of these artisits whose work actually required more thought and more work than that of the artists they were lampooning? Posted by Jack on Friday, Posted by baw "the lumberjack" on Monday, Al should get in. Not only is he hilarious and culturally relevant the history of pop music, but he is also the best white rapper there is. Posted by Mike on Friday, Okay There is many reasons Weird Al won't go.
He sucks 2. He's only polka and parody 3. Posers only like him 4. There are better artists who deserve to go 5. NO WAY!!! Why is he having a chance to go into the hall of fame when there should be more deserving artist. Who likes "Wierd Al" anyway,he is a parody person,and he is terrble. For all people who voted for Weird Al Posted by David on Wednesday, Posted by Mike on Tuesday, Consider this In the last five years pretty much some of the greatest muscians of all time have stayed out of the hall of fame. There are many better bands then Weird Al and on that list of people that should be in I can name way more.
Posted by Mike on Wednesday, The hall has shown their irrelevance this year, and lost any presumption of 'Rock and Roll Purity'. Run DMC???????

Posted by Roy on Monday, This "Weird Al" guy is an Anti-Semite! He should have his schlong cut off for making fun of rabbis. Oy vey! Posted by denyo on Wednesday, Finally, so many of those deserving have been rejected,the earliest eligible should be the earliest inducted. Posted by laustcawz on Monday, Love him or hate him he has to be in.
He's survived a very long time and is the King of Parodies. The rest are pretty much childish and not very funny at all but his longevity, influence, and brilliance on those songs definitely earn him a spot. Posted by Sam on Monday, Posted by mrxyz on Monday, Posted by Paul in KY on Tuesday, Posted by Telarock on Monday, I was at the RnR HoF recently and, surprisingly, in one of the presentations a brief clip of "Fat" is played.
I say yes for Weird Al for sheer talent.
Your Horoscope For Today by "Weird Al" Yankovic
Posted by Breaker on Monday, Frustrated fans of the Smiths, Tom Waits and Television also had their say, as did those who felt Lou Reed should be recognized for his solo works. Rush 3. The Moody Blues 4. The Smiths 5. Alice Cooper 6. Television 7. Beastie Boys 8. Deep Purple 9. Lou Reed Jethro Tull MC5 New York Dolls Roxy Music Tom Waits Sonic Youth Rolling Stone. Posted by Cheesecrop on Tuesday, Yankovic is elected to the Hall.
The Devil even must get a kick out of Weird Al. Posted by Telarock on Thursday, I stand by the comment you quoted. He will never be inducted. Posted by Paul in KY on Friday, Granted, homeboy is the most famous parody artist of all time and also managed to make a two-decades-plus career of it.
Posted by Roy on Friday, Posted by Cheesecrop on Friday, There is no doubt that Weird Al Yankovic should get in-He is innovative, The songs are well written, and the videos are a riot!! Posted by David on Thursday, Posted by Keebord on Thursday, How dare anyone diss Weird Al? And don't anyone forget it! Now, what did I just write? Must have forgotten.
fisbsardegna.org/images/candler/buhu-castellarquato-coppia.php Oh well. Happy New Year, everyone! Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Bud Light! Posted by Joe on Thursday, Posted by tron on Monday, I feel strongly the the history of music would be vastly different without him. Posted by Fred on Sunday, Definitely weird al, hes been over 30years and outlasted the careers of the artists he parodied, he is the most overlook its a crime not putting him in rockandroll as well as hollywood hof. Posted by Edge on Friday, I want to say Weird Al should be inducted, but at the same time I feel like that if they haven't all ready considered or are even simply refusing to consider him, why would he want to?
It wouldn't really be an honor if they did it just to get people to shut up about it. He changes lyrics, but not clever? Some of the most clever lyrics I've heard in my life have come from Weird Al. His voice isn't like the angels, but it has a range comparable to some of the best. He pays homage to many of the greats through his direct parodies and his style parodies, and his live shows are so much fun!
If the rock and roll hall of fame doesn't want him, that's their thing, keep saying no, but if they can't recognize him for the really good things he's done for pop over the past 25 years, it's not worth sweating over. Posted by Timbo on Saturday, Yankovic has received letters from depressed children who have stated that listening to Yankovic's work have brought them back from the brink of committing suicide. If that isn't good enough reason to let him in for his music then I don't know what is! Posted by Scott on Friday, I still certainly wouldn't mind seeing Weird Al in though, he's probably got a better shot than Spinal Tap too so that isn't hurting.
Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, Later editions of this book doesn't show this statistic.
1. The master of parodies can write a hilarious original (or 20).
Ray Stevens Stan Freberg Roger Miller Jerry Reed Allan Sherman. Though the Keltner analysis process is partially flawed, I'm going to tackle Weird Al anyways Warning: Fans of Weird Al, of which myself is one, please don't take offence to any of this, it's merely me trying to analyze things over 1 Was Weird Al ever considered to be best artist in rock music?
Did anyone ever seriously suggest Weird Al was the greatest artist of all time in rock and roll? If anyone seriously the key word ever did, I'm not aware of it and upon conducting research I found nothing, so I'm going to go with a no for this point. Taking this into consideration, I'm going to say yes for point two.
It's doubtful. He's had plenty of imitators, Kurt Cobain praised him for parodying Nirvana, many people admire him, sure he's had impact. Yes, absolutely. Just look up Straight Outta Lynwood. I'm sure there are some who'll argue he hasn't even passed his prime yet. I'm not particularly a fan of this point as it enters into far too subjective areas so I'll ignore it. Frank Zappa is sort of comparable and he is.

Spike Jones isn't, but Weird Al as he has been for the last few decades hasn't exactly had any rivals. Points I'm going to ignore as they fall into either too subjective areas for me, or deal with areas that aren't criteria for the Hall of Fame like record sales.
Was he responsible for any for stylistic changes? Did he introduce any new equipment? He has brought comedy to the forefront and has shown it to be culturally significant. Influence and Innovation? He may not have begun comedy but he certainly took it to new areas. His sound has made him essentially a household name. Yeah, sure. And for the final point, courtesy of me, did Weird Al display "unquestioned musical excellence" the de facto criteria for the Hall.
Think it over, take some of the previous points into consideration if you want. So what's the conclusion? I know these points are not necessarily very accurate but I'm glad I went through the process. I'll let people think all of this over and decide for themselves, if they even care to read all of this in the first place. Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, I called the Songwriters Hall Of Fame and asked them if Weird Al Yankovic qualifies and the person who responded, April Anderson, who is in charge of media relations and press releases the coordinator says I doubt it!
Then I said, but the lyrics are his. Then she said, "Um I don't understand how she can say the lyrics are not his? He wrote them. Most of the words are different from the words in the original songs. I don't think she knows what she's talking about.

Weird Al wrote his own music too on other songs. I'll have to ask Peter Bliss, moderator of the Song Hall Forum, nominating committee member, and coordinator of the Song Hall's writers workshops for the public. But the music is the same, and that is part of songwriting too. And who, outside of his fanbase, knows about his original songs? Unless one of the committee is a fan, unlikely as it is, it's going to be an uphill battle.
And I mean, "completely vertical. I don't think he belongs in the Hall or our Hall , but he puts his own lyrics to other's tunes. The Song Hall and Rock Hall should induct him for some controversy.

His delivery is brilliant and he has been doing it for 25 years.
He is as Americana as Star Wars, he is hilarious and his uncanny focus is America. He's actually a good musicain and really the only comedy artist the hall will ever need. And how often do Comedy artists last for 30 years with mainstream sucess? Posted by GFW on Monday, The Digital Dream Door website does not have a critique on Weird Al Yankovic or a qualifications rating for his chances of being inducted into the Rock Hall. Allan Sherman Spike Jones The Rutles Spinal Tap.
Spinal Tap Polkas On 45 Hooked On Polkas The Hot Rocks Polka Polka Your Eyes Out Bohemian Polka The Alternative Polka Polka Power! Angry White Boy Polka Polka Face. If Weird Al were get inducted, His Band should be inducted with him. Posted by Dan Windler on Friday, Clutching an accordion, Yankovic delivered the song to the tune of "La Bamba" with the same look of crazed intensity in his eyes that Bruce Springsteen has when he belts out the beginning of "Backstreets.
In fact, Weird Al might be the only man on the planet who can pull it off. The man is a national treasure. Weird Al fans are the kind of people who cheer for songs long before the band plays a single note. They can tell what's coming next solely by the costume the band is wearing when they walk onstage after video interludes. If they have on long beards, it's time for "Amish Paradise. It doesn't vary one note from night to night, but nobody expects him to pull a Pearl Jam and yank out "Taco Grande" without adequate preparation.
One of Weird Al's wonderful contradictions is how seriously he takes the absurd. If you talk to him offstage, he's as serious as a heart attack. It goes a long way towards explaining his longevity. At the show, he parodies R. The "Eat It" guy was supposed to quickly fade into obscurity along with every other novelty act in history, but somehow we're three decades after "My Bologna" and he's as popular as ever.
Incidentally, I didn't have time to grab dinner before the show, and the only offering at the concession stand was a bag of Doritos. I could practically taste the lasagna, the rye, the kaiser, the bologna and even the ding-dongs from the "Fat" video. Unfortunately, some of the newer songs don't measure up to the classics. His White Stripes-inspired "Charles Nelson Reilly" does score some laughs, but the jokes about the amazingly invincible Match Game panelist seem awfully similar to the Chuck Norris jokes from a few years back.
Twenty-two years after that song's release, Sylvester Stallone actually made a movie about a elderly, retired Rocky working in a restaurant. Does anybody need more proof that Weird Al is a prophet? If Ghandi II ever hits the big screen, he'll prove it beyond any doubt. There's always cheerleaders for "Smells Like Nirvana," he's always going to close out the main set singing "Fat" in a fat suit and there's always a clip from UHF. This time around, he showed the Wheel of Fish scene from his film.
A huge percent of the audience knew every line, and they screamed out "Stupid! You're so stupid! It's well past time for Weird Al to make another movie. It'll be impossible to top his debut, but he needs to try. As always, the show ended with an encore of Yankovic's two Star Wars songs. This time around, he had members of the crew dressed as storm troopers and one as Darth Vader. Things wrapped up with "Yoda. I'm glad that I've found your www. I can see that you are an expert at your work! I am starting a website soon, and your blog will be very useful for me Thank you for the excellent work and wishing you the success in your business.
Posted by duvet on Thursday, Yes, I vote for Weird Al to be in, no matter that so many "deserving" bands are waiting. He uneekly sp? Put Weird Al in the pyramid. Not just that he does parodies, but does them extremely well. I never bougt a recording of his ever but his concerts are bigtime - Fat. Give this clown space. Posted by Cokey on Thursday, Weird al is a queer, and it would be a dishonor to all rock legends if he got accepted into the rock n' roll hall of fame!
Posted by Your dad on Tuesday, Posted by DarinRG on Tuesday, Just because he's 'married and they have a daughter' doesn't mean the man isn't gay. Let's be honest. Some of the posters on this site truly scare me. Al should be inducted Not to mention Al's brilliant ability to write lyrics for his parodies that are spot on with the rhythms and melodies of the originals. Put him in!
