But the thing I'm reflecting on is one particular song off his Bad Hair Day album. Everything You Know Is Wrong is the track I'm talking about.
In interviews, Al has described that some of his songs are considered style parodies, rather than direct parodies of a particular song by certain artists. Everything You Know Is Wrong is an example of this, as it is an obvious style parody of They Might Be Giants.
Or at least, I think it's pretty obvious. Al's song mentions many themes common in TMBG's work. As well as the rather scatter-shot rhyme scheme that characterizes TMBG's ouevre. Plus, he mentions evil twins, alternate dimensions, and prothestic lips (which in TMBG's songWe Want a Rock, they mentioned prosthetic foreheads.) Even the title of the track references Everything Right Is Wrong Again
