Weird Al Yankovic’s zany glee for food is evident by the sumptuous buffet of hit parodies he’s served up over the decades.
Heck, the volume of ode to edibles churned out by our favorite accordionist even warranted a compilation of his “Eatest Hits” aptly named “The Food Album” released back in 1995.
Author, Vegan, Director, platinum record selling artist, Grammy winner, all these accolades must take a back seat to a prolific career in skewering an established hit via a food themed spin.
Here’s the bulk of his tastiest, commercially released, food centric discography. A horn o plenty of live performances, interviews & homegrown videos posted by fans (Al-oholics) dedicated to the mad genius that is and continues to be Weird Al.
