5. 'The Saga Begins'
When Weird Al prepped his 1999 LP Running With Scissors he knew that the pop culture story of the summer was going to be Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace. He learned everything he could about the plot from the Internet, and wrote a song about it to the tune of Don McLean's "American Pie." The fact that the movie was so terrible makes the song even funnier, especially when he delves into the intricate details of the stupid plot: "And in the end some Gunguns died/Some ships blew up and some pilots fried/A lot of folks were croakin'/The battle droids were broken."
