Weird Al’s First New Album in Five Years: Alpocalypse

By

So Weird Al’s got a new album coming out in June, and it’s called Alpocalypse. The teaser for it above is appropriately epic.

Also: I love that Weird Al is so beloved in the comedy world, despite his parody song schtick being a super crowded field these days. I mean, back when Weird Al was starting out, there was no YouTube pumping out 100 parodies of every pop hit. Now, what he does is in no way unique. But because the kids who grew up on Smells Like Nirvana and Fat are now the folks making their own comedy, and Weird Al is as cool now as he ever was. Who says comedy fans are fickle?
