Not a huge fan of comedy songs, but I grew up with "Neil's Heavy Concept Album", by Neil the hippy from The Young Ones (cult 80s UK comedy show). The standout piece from the entire album is this, where the vegetarian Neil accidentally eats a hamburger, turning him into a barbarian. The music is probably the best spoof Metal song ever.

"...and he did spend 10 minutes in deadly combat with the duvet..." :-P

I can recite that whole speech word for word. :-)
"In one terrifying leap, he sprang out of the wardrobe wearing nothing but his Y-fronts and a pair of Wellington boots..."
Quality.

The Young Ones: Bachelor Boys is possibly the most important literary work to have ever existed.

Butthole Surfers have some pretty funny songs. They have good live footage too.

I don't really like Comedy songs, though there is a few Comedy songs that make me laugh every time.

One is an acoustic song by Richard "The Dick" Coughlan, an underground comedian from the UK and a somewhat known YouTuber. It's his song "EDL National Anthem", it is hilarious!



I also love "The Complete History of the Soviet Union Arranged to the Melody of Tetris"



Lastly I love the songs "Call of Duty Must Die" by GodsImmortalGauntlet, the guitar work is pretty neat and half way through it cuts to a rant from AlphaOmegaSin, and some dude I don't know, and I also love "Hatredcopter" by Dethklok.
