8. 'Smells Like Nirvana'
By 1992, Weird Al's career was in a bit of a downward spiral. He scored a gigantic hit in 1988 with "Fat," but then people foolishly stayed away from the theater when his masterpiece UHF hit theaters in the summer of 1989. (I'm not being sarcastic, the movie gets funnier every time you see it.) He spent 1990 and 1991 licking his wounds and waiting for his next target. Then Nirvana released "Smells Like Teen Spirit," and he knew it was time to return. The video for the song actually features the same janitor from the original clip and managed to spoof it almost shot-for-shot. It made the album Off The Deep End a massive success, showing the world that Weird Al was no flash in the pan.
