Hailing from Lynnwood, California, Al Yankovic gained inspiration from the likes of Allan Sherman, Dr. Demento, Tom Lehrer and Spike Jones. Aged thirteen he gave his first demo to Dr. Demento. Al was called for a radio debut on Dr. Demento’s show a few years later where he played the single “Belvedere Cruising” and found favor with the show’s audiences.
Later, inspired by the Knacks hit single “My Sharona”, Weird Al presented a satirical take on the song titled “My Bologna”. Impressed by his parody, the Knacks convinced Capitol Records to issue the track as a single.
The musician released his self-titled debut album in 1983. His 1984 comedic remake, “Eat It”, of Michael Jackson’s single “Beat It”, won Al his first Grammy for “Best Comedy Performance Single or Album, Spoken or Musical”.
