Weird Al" Yankovic is the debut album by American parodist Alfred "Weird Al" Yankovic. The album was the first of many produced by former The McCoys guitarist Rick Derringer. Mostly recorded in March 1982, the album was released by Rock 'n Roll Records as an LP and on Compact Cassette in 1983.

Studio Album by "Weird Al" Yankovic. November 1992 – August 1993. Off The Deep End. Next Album.

One can tell just by listening to Alapalooza that Weird Al Yankovic was having a hard time writing clever material to coincide with the current musical trends. The album's title is indeed appropriate - the musical content varies from track to track.

Album · 1993 · 12 Songs. More By "Weird Al" Yankovic. See All. Bad Hair Day.

I've recently taken to rectifying this, one CD at a time. Alapalooza" was just as enjoyable now as it was back in the days of listening to it on my Walkman.

Weird Al" Yankovic (1983). Okay, so number 14 of 14 is Al’s debut album. This is by no means a bad album, but as Al continued making music over the years he really came into his own, and refined the craft of musical humor which left this album in the metaphorical dust. The parodies on this album are decent enough. The originals leave a bit to be desired. Personally, I like the song Happy Birthday which was written because Al thought there should be some options when it came to selecting a song to sing to someone on their birthday.
