It's rare to see a commercially successful rock band stick together for more than 30 years. It becomes more of a rarity when the Grammy-winning front man is not only a musician and a singer, but also a well-known TV personality, actor and author. Is there a possibility of overexposure? Not when that front man is 'Weird Al' Yankovic.

Music fans know Al best for his song parodies that have been comedy hits. His music has spanned more than three decades, and he has modified his sound to fit the styles that are relevant and popular over the course of time. From Madonna and Michael Jackson in the '80s, to Coolio and The Offspring in the '90s, to Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga today, Weird Al's music has crossed genre and generation, and continues to reinvent itself. Despite more than 30 years of making music, Al continues to attract new fans, and scored his greatest musical success on the Billboard chart with a parody of Chamillionaire's 'Ridin'' called 'White & Nerdy' in 2006.
