Indie Weird Al


“All Split Ends”

Parody of: LCD Soundsystem, “All My Friends”

Sample lyric:

But if you’re worried your bangs are feathered
Then you oughta try Tresemmé


Sufjan Stevens, “Chicago”

You hate the Sultan
Cracker no, cracker no
Sought Cave of Wonders
Killed some schmoe, killed some schmoe
But in the sequel
Direct to video
Joined with the good guys
Jafar no, Jafar no

“Jump Cut Schticks”

Foster the People, “Pumped Up Kicks”

All the YouTube kids with the jump cut schticks
Havin’ fun, havin’ fun
Speedin’ up their voices

“My PERLs”

Animal Collective, “My Girls”

I don’t mean to seem like I care about a regexp
Or a data munge
I just want procedural sub-routines
for my PERLs

“Aching Gout”

Franz Ferdinand, “Take Me Out”

You don’t drink fruit juice
You stick to sugar, seafood and meat
Claim it’s genetic
But Mom and Dad have four healthy feet

“Set Phasers to Stun”

TV on the Radio, “Staring at the Sun”

“Captain Kirk was better”
“No, Picard was badass”
Nerd fight starting now in
Mrs. Hardy’s math class


Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Maps”

Wait! Bowels aren’t moving, bowels aren’t moving

“Bloat On”

Modest Mouse, “Float On”

I broke the buttons on my dress shirt after lunch
Well in the wash that thing had shrunk a bunch
I can’t watch TV without some chips to munch
I love that salty taste and solid crunch

“The Cheap Way to Fly”

Spoon, “The Way We Get By”

We pick flights with late connections
We rarely do not get bumped
We accept seats pushed so close that
We feel like we’re being humped

“Such States’ Rights”

The Postal Service, “Such Great Heights”

I am misspelling my sign
On which I wrote a whine
About the immigrants and how they won’t speak English all the time
And I marched on a town hall
Where I railed against all
The healthcare freeloaders stealing my Medicare, oh god what gall.

“Barack Obama”

Vampire Weekend, “Oxford Comma”

Don’t watch The Office with Barack Obama
He’ll spoil Dexter’s drama too
He’s cruel
So if you’re watching Game of Thrones
He’ll tell you just who dies in battle
He’ll tattle


This has nothing to do with Hipster Weird Al, but you might like that too.
