Get ready to laugh out loud...

"Weird Al" Yankovic has recorded parody songs to artists such as Nirava, U2, Billy Idol, Queen, and many, many more.

In 1993, Weird Al covered Billy Ray Cyrus' 1992 smash hit "Achy Breaky Heart". Cryus' Platinum-selling song was featured at number two on VH1 and Blender's list of the "50 Most Awesomely Bad Songs Ever."

Weird Al's version of the song details a frustrated listener's hatred for Cryus' song, with a few alternatives he would rather endure, including physical pain. 

"Achy Breaky Song" was off his album Alapallooza and was Weird Al's first single to get considerable airplay on country radio stations. He wrote in the liner notes of the album that, "All songwriting proceeds from Achy Breaky Song will be donated to the United Cerebral Palsy Association." He did this because although his song was very successful, he felt it was 'mean-spirited'.

Take a listen to the hilarious song below.

Lyrics Below

You can torture me
With Donnie & Marie
You can play some Barry Manilow
Or you can play some schlock
Like New Kids On The Block
Or any Village People song you know
Or play Vanilla Ice
Hey, you can play him twice
And you can play the Bee Gees any day
But Mr. DJ, please
I'm beggin' on my knees
I just can't take no more of Billy Ray

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
The most annoying song I know
And if you play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I might blow up my radio, ooo...

You can clear the room
By playing Debbie Boon
Or crank your Abba records until dawn
Oh, I can even hear
Slim Whitman or Zamfir
Don't mind a Yoko Ono marathon
Or play some Tiffany
On 8-track or CD
Or scrape your fingernails across the board
Or tie me to a chair
And kick me down the stairs
Just please don't play that stupid song no more

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
You know I hate that song a bunch
And if you play that song
That nauseating song
It might just make me lose my lunch, ooo...

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I think it's driving me insane
Oh, please don't play that song
That irritating song
I'd rather have a pitchfork in my brain...

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
The most annoying song I know
And if you play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I might blow up my radio, ooo-woo...
