I was in the local Barnes & Noble the other day and saw Weird Al Yankovic’s latest album, Alpocalypse, on sale. I was, of course, amused, being a long-time Yankovic fan, but I’m also slightly disturbed that he is doing riffs on performers who are just over half my age.
Anyway, looking back through his discography on Wikipedia, I noticed a song I had missed back when he put out Running with Scissors, called Grapefruit Diet, which is riffed off of “Zoot Suit Riot” by the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. He didn’t put out a video of it, or release it as a single, but have no fear, because that’s what Internet Fanboys are for. Enjoy.
