Check Out a Supercut of all 77 Cover Songs 'Weird Al' Yankovic Performed on His Tour
What's the proper way to celebrate the conclusion of a 77-date tour? Clearly, with a supercut of every cover performed during the the self-deprecatingly titled "Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour." At least that's how "Weird Al" Yankovic does it. Who are we to doubt him?
Earlier this week, Al finished up what was originally booked as a solo-material only tour, with a heavy emphasis on deep cuts. But the polka-loving parodist couldn't resist sneaking in a different cover each night during the encore.
Along the road, the king of comedy-songwriting played renditions of classics like "Rebel Yell," by Billy Idol, "Rebel, Rebel," by David Bowie, "Psycho Killer," by Talking Heads, Smash Mouth's infamous "All-Star," and 73 other classics.
The 26-minute supercut is available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Check it out.
