Spinal Tap for sure! Fucking gold even when wrenched from it’s context in the film.

I don’t think I’ll ever listen to Frank Zappa


#22

I haven’t seen or even heard of this film?

I think these songs remain funny because they’re actually really good songs. what do you reckon?


#23

Your second question is the crux of this thread IMO, those Don’t Stop or We’ll Die songs I posted above actually sound like extremely competently put together piano pop songs, I don’t know if this is the thing that makes them more listenable (IMO) to other comedy bands or if it just means that they should be making non-comedy music though…


#24

The Divine Comedy have a habit of going a bit comedy don’t they, thing is they’re usually actually good songs as well so they get away with it.


#25

Clues in the name, bozo!

David Devant and His Spirit Wife have always been a personal fave.


#28

I would rather listen to that particular comedy band if they were just a regular band who were a bit funny. like The Unicorns.

The Lonely Island are actually really big hip-hop/r&b/pop enthusiasts, aren’t they, and very good at making songs that capture the best bits of all of that. however, I wouldn’t bother if they weren’t also very funny.

in summary, ¯_(ツ)_/¯


#29

While hit and miss, trey Parker and matt stone have made many funny songs


#30

I truly hate The Unicorns.


#31

Ditto The Simpsons.


#32

This is not for me

I instantly got Norway’s biggest contribution to the “comedy” music genre stuck in my head from just looking at this thread. Thanks a lot.


#36

Pray share…


#37

You know the one, it was a world wide hit


#38

This is slightly more amusing to me


#39

Genuinely drawing a blank here which is likely to be very embarrassing in hindsight
