We already know there is something from the '90s on it. Whathishname was raving about it.

First World Problems is definitely The Pixies. I can't name the other style parodies yet, but a couple feel very familiar.

Crosby Stills & Nash and sometimes Y?

I'm sold.

Although to be honest, I've already had it pre-ordered, so I was sold before that... but still... I'm sold.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I've listened to the whole record.  Honestly I recognize NOTHING.....  If I didn't read that Word Crimes was a parody I wouldn't have any clue......  Can't even tell what the style parodies are parodies of.......

Listening now. This first one is so musically abysmal. Not his fault, obviously, but I think some songs might be too pathetic to make an entertaining parody.

It was "Handy", but the "Blurred Lines" one is pretty bad too.

Never heard Blurred Lines in its entirety.  All I know is that it's a pushy love song by Alan Thicke's son.

Edit: Oh, and that it has an uncensored music video.

Pushy is a pretty nice word for rapey.
