I saw him in concert. His best song was probably his version of Nirvana.

I'm confused. Post a Weird Al song which is naturally a parody of another song or is somebody doing parodies of Weird Al's parodies?

Weird Al creates some original (non-parody) work; most of it is polka. Also, some of his songs are style parodies; they don't imitate a particular song but a genre.

I like Smells Like Nirvana partly because it's one of the few songs that pokes fun at the song it's paroding.

Anyway, too much analysis; not enough video. For a weird Weird Al, check out Bob.

I was thinking the same thing.
Who does parodies of Weird Al?
