Since Mad is full of parodies, I’ll start things off with one of my favorite parody songs:

Here is the first song I thought of.
Our House by MADness


Greetings Mix Mob! :notes: :inkys_mixtape_mob2: So Mad Magazine!
This first one… I have no excuse for myself—it’s what popped into my head first, and I’m rollin’ w/ it! :stuck_out_tongue::dancer:t2::purple_heart:

Weird Science- Oingo Boingo

And this one is for Spy vs Spy: (the only thing I remember lol)

Last of the Secret Agents- Nancy Sinatra


I have had affection for this song ever since first hearing it. And many thanks for getting Mad Magazine on the new Ultra.


I haven’t read a MAD Magazine in forever, but they always made me laugh. SPY vs SPY was my favorite and I think this song would work well for them.


:disguised_face: Hey @Green.Lantern,
While I’m enjoying reading the magazine for the first time, I think this song by weird Al is a perfect fit from Transformers the movie!

This muvie Sung a Musterpiece!:upside_down_face:



No matter how many times I hear this song the beginning always makes me laugh.


I’m expecting this playlist to have the record both for most Weird Al songs and songs with “mad” in the title.


Two of my favorite songs that are actually from MAD Magazine:


Way back in 1959, before many of us were born, two Mad records were released. The first was Musically Mad, which most featured instrumentals. The second was The Worst from Music No. 2, which contained this song, credited to Alfred E. Neuman & The Furshlugginer Five, “What Me Worry?.”

In 1962 the album Mad Twists Rock ‘N’ Roll came out. It included this parody of dance songs like the Twist, “The Pretzel,” recorded by The Dellwoods (recording as The Sweet Sickteens). Unless you listen closely to the lyrics, you could actually believe it was a straight forward dance song!


“Mad World”, by Tears For Fears

“The Spy Hunter”, by Project 86


Weird Al is Mad Magazine in human form. And yes, I do mean that as a compliment.


It’s funny, as much of a comic head as I am, whenever I think of Mad, I more think of the TV show that they had in the 90s.

Eagle eyed viewers might notice a certain DC alum in this video…


I don’t even listen to his music, but I’ll definitely take your words for it. Thankyou for the complement. :slightly_smiling_face:


this made me think of the band madness
