Watch a Lyric Video for The Lonely Island's New Song "Semicolon"

Here's the latest song from The Lonely Island as part of their series Wack Wednesdays in which they're dropping a new song or video every Wednesday until the release of their new album, The Wack Album. Called "Semicolon," the track finds Lonely Islanders Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer backed up by Solange, and it may just be the best grammar-related rap song ever.

An Open Letter to The Lonely Island on the Cusp of Incredibad's Second Anniversary

To: The Lonely Island, Inc. From: Abraham Riesman, analyst Subject: Acknowledging your children Priority: Urgent

Messrs. Andy, Jorm, and Kiv—

We need to talk about Incredibad.

First off, congratulations — your debut masterpiece turns two on Friday. It remains that rarest of jewels: a comedy album comprised of original songs that you can find yourself humming during idle moments alone.

But you guys have to take some ownership. You’ve been neglectful parents to some of your jams.

Fred Armisen and The Lonely Island Talk Siamese Cats, Pubes, Roombas and Other Important Topics

Fred Armisen guest hosts the latest episode of Pitchfork's Over/Under, in which he interviews the guys from The Lonely Island and quickly ditches the show's premise. After all, who's to say that pubes are overrated or underrated? Although, I guess this is Pitchfork we're talking about, so some judgement is necessary. I suppose if pressed, I'd give pubes a 7.8.

Watch the Lonely Island's New Video "Diaper Money"

Here's a brand new music video from The Lonely Island. Called "Diaper Money," it's a track off their upcoming release, The Wack Album. Babies, coffins, and fun nicknames, the video has it all.

Between Two Ferns co-creator Scott Aukerman directed the Between Two Ferns part, while the Lonely Island guys directed the music video. Also, Ed Norton.

Please help spread the word about this video so that more people see it.

And The Emmy For #1 Sex Champion Goes To…The Lonely Island!

The Lonely Island Emmy medley of "Jack Sparrow," "I Just Had Sex" and "3-way" was a delight, wasn't it? This is the kind of moment all of these bloated awards shows desperately need; anyone can sit through hours upon hours of awards if you just give them a little bit of Bill Macy-freaking fun. Between the spasmodically gyrating wave-men, Maya Rudolph getting double-teamed by Ed Helms and John Stamos and the gigantic billowing American flags, their performance seems like the last push we need for society to finally, officially, recognize that it's not gay if it's in a three-way. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

The Lonely Island Has Big Stuff That Works Super-Good

Despite the plethora of songs like "Jizz In My Pants," "I Had Sex" and "We're Back!" that suggest otherwise, the Lonely Island A.V. Club interview maintains the party line that its three members are great at sex, they do it all the time and their stuff is big and works super-good. Also working super-good is their relationship with Lorne Michaels, who they haven't had to pitch to in four years. "We pitched to him a few times, and he’s like, 'Uh, okay…' and when it turned out that people liked them, he’s like, 'You know what? Just don’t tell me, ’cause I’d rather just see it in [...]

We'll see if this one becomes as popular as that song.

The Lonely Island Announces "Wack Wednesdays"

The Lonely Island put out this video to announce a new weekly holiday, Wack Wednesdays. Leading up to the June 11th release of their new album The Wack Album, they'll be dropping a new video or song on their YouTube page every Wednesday. That's five entire Wednesdays of new content, guys.

The Lonely Island Celebrate One Billion YouTube Views with a Hot Song

It's odd that "one of the best scenes" in The Watch seems more like a promo for the movie than anything that would fit into a narrative. Who promotes a movie to people already watching it?  Those Lonely Island guys sure are irreverent. Kongrats you kooky kids.

The Lonely Island Promises "We'll Kill You"

Is there a heaven for gangsters like them? Almost certainly not, though there is a hell stocked with their favorite performance fleeces. The Dudes are back in The Lonely Island's "We'll Kill You" video, and they're going to look so good in their jean shorts and ankle socks as they watch your life blood slowly drain out of your body. "Kill U" is the third installment of the glassy-eyed regular bros from to "Just 2 Guyz" and "We Like Sportz." Steve should consider himself lucky he didn't go down the same homicidal path.  That snake, not so much.
