Annotation

Known for his parodies of famous songs of other artists, although about half of his released songs are original.
However, almost all parodies that ever floated around on the internet have at one or another time been attributed to him. Two good references for songs not Al are:
- http://free.house.cx/~eil/etc/notal.html (not found Feb 2011, use the wayback machine)
- http://www.com-www.com/weirdal/notbyal.html

The song often referred to as "Rye or the Kaiser" can be found under its correct name, "Theme From Rocky XIII"".
