Editors’ Notes Rock's master of the song parody, “Weird Al” Yankovic is also a first-class humorist in his own right, bringing the tradition of Allan Sherman to the modern day. He first scored nationally with a Knack takeoff, “,” which became one of the most-requested items on the Dr. Demento radio show; even The Knack were amused. Guitar hero Rick Derringer became his producer and he lampooned Queen, The Kinks and Madonna, later putting grunge and hip-hop through the shredder. MTV exposure and concert tours added to his status as rock's court jester.
