“Weird Al” Yankovic is kind of an anomaly of popular culture. I mean, how many other musical comedy acts have been able to sustain a career for over four decades? Since his songs first appeared on The Dr. Demento Radio Show in the mid-1970s, Weird Al has gone on to release platinum-selling records, earn multiple Grammys, and write (and star in) his own film, UHF. The legacy of Weird Al continues to grow this month with the release of Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, starring Daniel Radcliffe in the title role—which means it’s the perfect time to dig into Al’s bizarre and hilarious discography.
Each album is available to stream and download for free on Freegal.
