Turtleneck & Chain

Five years since "Dick in a Box" forever changed our idea of dicks, boxes and Justin Timberlake, SNL's pop-parody trio show no sign of running out of impossibly brilliant half-jokes. Their consistently great second disc combines songs you've YouTubed to death ("I Just Had Sex," "Motherlover") with top-shelf new material featuring good sports from Michael Bolton to Snoop Dogg (they also throw in a DVD of their Web shorts). The best parody is "No Homo" ("Eh, yo, no homo, but I wanna dress up like Dorothy and butt-fuck a dude while he 69s Morrissey"). But there's quality pop too: The Beck-abetted "Attracted to Us" is both a hilarious shy guy's anthem and a fine summer jam. 

Listen to "I Just Had Sex (feat. Akon.)"
