/ Best Spoof Song
I'l go for Morris Minor and the Majors - Stutter Rap.
Also, Newport State of Mind made me smile

another vote for this
funnily enough, goldie lookin chain didnt see the funny side of it, and released a spoof of the spoof, which was rather angry, not funny and not very good
The Fresh Prince of Cwmbran is also worth a look
There is a truely delightful version of Katy Perry "I kissed a Girl" by a gentleman from Essex which is very NSFW about losing a bet on a building site and having to pleasure a bricky.
That has got to be Kunt and the Gang...
Well done sir!
I've not heard that one but as soon as you said "bloke from Essex"...
I don't think it is as good as The Clegg and Cameron version of use my A as a C but it is rather chortle inducing. His royal wedding version of F**ksticks was also rather good.

HMHB don't do spoofs ! They are far more original than that.
> Surprised no-one has mention Weird Al yet! Maybe too obvious?
Third post of the thread mentions him.
Although not exactly a spoof, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is partly a tongue-in-cheek "mock opera", according to Freddy Mercury himself. Anyway, it's a great contender for Best of its genre - whatever that is!
Similarly so did Van Halen in their early days:
Could this be Magic:
Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now):
Dragging it back to climbing for a mo, I'll raise a glass to the legend that was Dr Tom Patey and nominate one of his songs: "Onward Christian Bonington". No sign of a recording on youtube, but you can find the lyrics here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=1751 (scroll down)

Anyone remember the Hee-Bee-Gee-Bees "meaningless Songs (in very high voices)"?
Bad News at Donington was probably the highlight of my festival going life, despite being a spoof band.
Hayseed Dixie do so fantastic blue grass covers of AC/DC and various other bands. They are also awesome to see live
Lots of videos on youtube
