    • Weird "Al" Yankovic: "Homer and Marge"
      "Weird Al" parodied John Mellencamp's "Jack and Diane" as "Homer and Marge" in this episode, just as he parodied the song 20 years ago on his self-titled first album. The song "Buckingham Blues" was about 'Chuck and Diane' (Prince Charles and Princess Diana). However, while "Buckingham Blues" was originally a parody of "Jack and Diane", when Mellencamp refused permission to use it, Al changed the music, but didn't alter the lyrics very much. Thus, it is both a parody and not a parody of the song, depending on how you look at it.
