Devo Spice JoCo Got Jacked This song contains language that may be objectionable to some listeners and may not be suitable for radio broadcast.
You may have heard recently that Jonathan Coulton was ripped off by Glee. If you haven't the short version is they used his version of "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot without even telling him or giving him any credit. Here's his blog about it.

Besides being a very talented indie musician and a really nice guy Jonathan Coulton is directly responsible for the FuMP's existence. His response was to re-release his cover on iTunes and donate all the proceeds to charity.

What Fox did was really sleazy, even if it was perfectly legal. So I felt the need to vent about it in song form, as I tend to do. So here, I present to you, is a parody of the Sir Mix-A-Lot version of "Baby Got Back" about the whole situation.

Music by Ben Stahl, with cameo appearances by the great Luke Ski along with Dr. Milo T. Pinkerton III and Remy Dee of the Consortium of Genius.

This song is now available on the following CDs:

Hey! I get to leave the first comment! Sweet! This was awesome in its awesomeness, making it meta-awesome. Very good work, very timely work, very profane work. Yay! Although, as everyone knows, I released this parody years ago. Damn you, Devo! (kidding)

Remy and I are quite happy to have had a chance to help in such a noble cause against those Fox-suckers!

Brilliant! (So, so, so tempted to sing this to JoCo's karaoke track for "Baby Got Back" now...)

That was fast! Well done, great timing.

Ian, if you're going to do it, please do. I don't really have the resources, after all. *grin*

Fox can kiss my ass! I hope this goes viral in a big way and JoCo finally gets some credit! Awesome job by Devo!

@j2n4me, all the money from this track is going to a very worthy cause. The I've Got Three Kids To Feed And Holy Crap They Eat A Lot Foundation.

I hope Jonathan Coulton hears this! Nice work!

None of this would've ever happened in the first place if Mix-A-Lot hadn't stolen my Harry Potter rap and then traveled back in time twelve years. Nicely done, Devo!
2013-01-30 Insane Ian
And then this happened...

I'm not sure it was even legal. Doesn't Creative Commons mean you have to give attribution?

Excellent job on this, Devo!! You nailed it!! (And, as a side note ... I had an ironic thing happen while I was on a flight from San Antonio to Charlotte this afternoon. I was in the aisle seat, and listening to music on my iPod. While Joco's "Baby Got Back" was playing, a huge lady walked by going to the restroom. Her huge butt rubbed against me and pushed me against the lady sitting next to me!)
