Thread Name: Anybody else hate parodies?
Subject: RE: Anybody else hate parodies?
Parodies are ways of punching holes in sacred cows. People take things a bit too seriously and "boom" - a parody. I wonder if anyone's ever done a study to see if the liklihood of a parody is directly related to the seriousness of a song. Then again, judging by the number of parodies to "Waltzing With Bears," maybe it's not worth pursuing.
