After the plights of Below Average Dave, Peter Coffin, and yes, even a Weird Al incident in 2006, it seems to me like the music industry is trying to roll back the clock on the landmark 2 Live Crew case! I SAY THEE NAY!! Parody *is* Fair Use!
Though in an ironic twist, this song about Fair Use is actually my 5th original song, albeit done in a style sorta resembling the Ting Tings.
Holy cow DJ Particle! This song rocks more than the RIAA being thrown off a bridge! Great job and I'm recommending this to all my parody loving friends :)
I love Fair Use almost as much as I love fair abuse. Thanks for the shout-out, DJP.
One of my new favorite songs! I think every parody artist should know this song and know the legality of what they do, no matter what the RIAA throws their way!
Nice parody of "That's Not My Name" by Ting Tings.
Like I mentioned in person, listening to a parody was how I came to make purchases of Eminem's music, just like listening to a parody is how you came to purchase Lady Gaga. Great work!
Only a style parody, Max :)
Excellent job here, having more meaning for me having followed the badave saga of 2009
Great song, DJ Particle. It's anthem-tastic and a great big middle-finger to the RIAA.
@Carrie: Not even a parody will make me want to ever purchase Lady Gaga. I also find it ironic that parody prompted you to purchase Eminem -- Eminem's career was launched off video parody and yet he refused to allow Weird Al to video parody him. Jackass.
And BTW, it's true that parody has prompted me to purchase albums by the original artists as well. I bought MJ's "Bad" thanks to Weird Al, for starters.
Actually, you may be surprised by Lady Gaga....she's not exactly a cookie-cutter pop diva. She writes her own stuff, for one.
Hey DJ Particle, thank you for writing this. Excellent stuff here.
