Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Despite not requiring permission from artists/bands to parody their songs, he is required by law to pay royalties for any parodies that directly sample any lyrics, music, etc., from other songs. Because of the number of parodies he's written, recorded and performed, Weird Al's royalties are among the most complicated in the music industry. See more »
