AMC's 'Better Call Saul' Now Has Its Very Own Song

Ahead of the February premiere of AMC's Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, the network released the above music video over the weekend for "Better Call Saul: The Song." The song was written by show creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould and performed by country singer Junior Brown, and the video features the first real peeks at what we can expect from the spin-off next year.

Check Out Weird Al’s Incredible Attention to Detail in This Comparison Video

As if you needed any further proof that Weird Al is the best, here's a new video that compares eight of his parody videos side-by-side with the original, which clearly shows that Yankovic's just as good at skewering artists' music videos as he is good at skewering their songs.

Weird Al Reminds You That Your Team Sucks in "Sports Song"

It's a new day, which means there's a new Weird Al Mandatory Fun music video for your enjoyment. After "Tacky," "Word Crimes," "Foil," and yesterday's "Handy," today Yankovic dropped the video for the above original ditty "Sports Song" via Funny or Die, which is a pretty good summation of sports fans for those of us who find the whole thing pointless.

Weird Al's Week of Awesomeness Continues with Robin Thicke Parody "Word Crimes"

After yesterday's "Tacky," Weird Al just released his second music video today — a parody of "Blurred Lines" called "Word Crimes" that's a great tribute to grammar nerds everywhere despite his questionably flexible take on the Oxford comma. Today is also the official release date for Mandatory Fun, so you can head over to Weird Al's website to buy the album and start memorizing lyrics like it's fifth grade all over again.

Watch an Animated Music Video for Tim & Eric's "Jambalaya"

Here's an animated music video for the song "Jambalaya" by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, which also doubles as a recipe for jambalaya. Tim & Eric recorded the song in character as the '70s "swamp rock" band "Pusswhip Banggang," which they introduced years ago on Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! (video below).  The video coincides with Tim & Eric releasing "Jambalaya" as a 12-inch record via Drag City today.

Watch Bo Burnham Repeat Stuff in His New Music Video

Comedian Bo Burnham dropped a new music video today for "Repeat Stuff," an irresistibly catchy (and slightly bloody) tune featuring a small appearance by Paul Scheer as Burnham's high powered agent. Even better is the comment Burnham left on the video for his fans:

MUCH LOVE TO ALL MY FANS. SHOUT OUT TO SATAN, THE ILLUMINATI AND BUILDING 7. DEATH IS COMING AND CANNOT BE STOPPED. I AM SO HUMBLED BY YOUR SUPPORT. I AM IMMORTAL AND THIS SKIN IS TEMPORARY. I NEED THE BLOOD. LOVE TO ANY ONE OUT THERE WHO IS STRUGGLING. THE NONBELIEVERS WILL TASTE FIRE. THE DARKNESS APPROACHES. ACCEPT IT BUT STILL FEAR IT. I AM [...]

Jay Pharoah Sings About Girls with Bad Breath in "Bad Kisser"

It's been a couple months since Jay Pharoah released a new music video, but Above Average just dropped a new one today that's a parody of Usher's "Good Kisser." Expect a lot of metaphors for terrible breath.

Weird Al's Iggy Azalea Parody "Handy" Is Quite Ridiculous

We're halfway through Weird Al's exciting week of music video releases for his album Mandatory Fun — watch "Tacky," "Word Crimes," and "Foil" if you haven't yet — and today he dropped the video for his Iggy Azalea parody "Handy," which includes a few scenes of Eddie Pepitone getting attacked by household appliances. Probably the coolest thing about the Mandatory Fun videos is how Yankovic has been spreading the love by releasing them on different platforms — Nerdist, VEVO, CollegeHumor, and now Yahoo Screen — because he is just the best.

Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Eric Stonestreet, Kristen Schaal, and Jack Black Join Weird Al in "Tacky" Music Video

Weird Al dropped his first Mandatory Fun music video today for "Tacky," which turns out is a parody of Pharrell's hit single "Happy." It includes a bunch of great comedy people happily dancing around while dressed up in awful neon getups too.

Watch a Music Video Hannibal Buress Made with Open Mike Eagle

Here's a music video for the song "Doug Stamper" from comedian Open Mike Eagle that heavily features comedian Hannibal Buress. Buress bookends the video, opening it up co-hosting "The Advice Show" with Eagle in a comedy segment that kicks things off and closing it out by rapping a verse of the song. For those who have heard Buress perform "Gibberish Rap," his hip hop prowess comes as no surprise.

Vanessa Bayer Plays a Tacky Talk Show Host in Haim's New Music Video

From hosting Sound Advice to roasting screamo bands, Vanessa Bayer has long proven herself to be the perfect bridge between comedy and rock stars, but today she's taken it a step further by playing a '90s-style talk show host named Dallas Murphy in the new music video for "My Song 5" by Haim featuring A$AP Ferg. Bayer is certainly much nicer in this video than she was during Haim's guest spot on Sound Advice last month.

Weird Al's Final 'Mandatory Fun' Music Video "Mission Statement" Is Here

Yesterday marked the final music video release for Weird Al's new album Mandatory Fun, and via WSJ, here's the business jargon-stuffed Crosby, Stills & Nash-style "Mission Statement."

Back today with Mandatory Fun music video #3 after "Tacky" and "Word Crimes," here's Weird Al with his Lorde parody "Foil" featuring some great tips for optimal food storage, Patton Oswalt, and Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant as a pair of top secret government employees. If you haven't purchased the album yet, head over to Amazon to get it on CD, MP3, or vinyl.
