Best parodies 2012

Nominees for the MTV Video Music Awards were announced at the beginning of the month, and as I perused the selections, I realized that many of the songs owe a lot of their success to their viral parodies. Of course stars like Justin Bieber are already household names, but artists like Gotye and Carly Rae Jepsen have gained wider audiences thanks to the clever YouTubers who have written and performed hilarious spoof lyrics.

While MTV will honor "legit" music videos next month at the VMA's, we here at the Music Wiki are going to honor the parodies that have given us much-needed chuckles throughout the the year. There were only two rules for selecting the nominees:

  • NO Lip-Syncing! A true parody or spoof uses the same tune, but with original, comical lyrics. Lip-syncing to "Call Me Maybe" does not count as a parody (I'm looking at you, every sports team of 2012).
  • NO MattyBRaps! The kid is cute and all, but I assure you him and his parents are not producing these covers for comedic purposes. It's also cheating if you make a "parody" for every song on the Top 100.

Without further ado, here are the nominees. Click on the song title to view the original video.
