Alred "Weird Al" Yankovic was born October 23, 1959 and is a singer/songwriter, comedian, and music producer with a net worth of $10 million. In 1979, his first song parody aired, and he has since sold over 12 million albums, more than any other comedian in history. He has eared three Grammys, four gold records, and six platinum records. He has also written and starred in his own film, UHF, directed music videos for Ben Folds and Hanson, as well as had his own TV show, The Weird Al Show.

Al Yankovic began playing to accordion at age six, and continued lessons for three years. He skipped the second grade, and was labeled a "nerd" early on, taking no interest in social events or sports, and being a straight-A student while graduating high school as valedictorian. In 1979 he recorded "My Bologna," a parody to The Kack's "My Sharona," and Yankovic signed a six-month contract with Capitol Records. Yankovic recorded a live parody to Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust," on the Dr. Demento radio show in 1980 with Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz playing the drums on an accordion case to add to the comedic effect. Throughout the 1980s Weird Al began touring and recording more songs, as well as co-writing and starring in a "mockumentary" titled "The Compleat Al," revolving around his life and comedy. He continued to record and in 2007 released his longest tracks, "Albuquerque" and "Trapped in the Drive-Thru". In 2009 he released "Craigslist" and "Skipper Dan," among others, all which he released through a digital EP titled Internet Leaks. On August 28, 2009, Rolling Stone ranked Weird Al first on a reader poll of "who most deserves to be enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
