8. 'Word Crimes'
There isn't a single song in the Weird Al catalog that's even PG-13, so an X-rated tune like Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" might seem like a tricky one for him to tackle. But Weird Al loves a challenge. "I wanted to take a song that was ostensibly misogynistic, and people were saying it was even a little rape-y," he says, "and make it into a song that could ostensibly be part of a school’s curriculum." The result is "Word Crimes," a Schoolhouse Rock!-esque lesson about grammar. The animated video has been viewed nearly 10 million times in a single week.
