I Have Obscenely LOW Standards of WHAT I CAN STAND AS STUPID, but This is Just AWFUL

I'm not sure if Chevy Chase's 1980 failed attempt at making a funny album, Chevy Chase, is very well known. If it is unknown you'll know why, REAL quick like, if you can sit through his (ahem) parody of "Rappers Delight." Ugh.

I sat through the entire song, and most of the other tracks on this record, so I can honestly say this is perhaps one of the worst records I've ever heard. Of course, most comedic/novelty records suck hella balls, but sometimes the extreme ridiculousness works at least once, but Chevy Chase ain't funny... it mostly doesn't make sense, THERE ARE NO JOKES! I hope some A&R jack ass was fired over this.

I made it to about 2:35. I appreciate that he was doing rap parody long before most of the country even knew what it was, though. Chevy would have been on the cutting edge of comedy, if he had been actually funny.
