I picked Hooked on Polkas because...uhh, it's got "Footloose" in it...and uh, that was a movie...so, yeah.


You could have gone with "Bohemian Polka", since the original version was re-popularized in the nineties by the movie - "Wayne's World". Or you could have used "Polkamon" since that was from a movie soundtrack.

Alapalooza: Based on the 12 songs Al would play if he headlined Lollapalooza, or his 12 songs most influenced by 90s alternative / modern rock.

1. Smells Like Nirvana
2. My Baby's In Love With Eddie Vedder
3. Canadian Idiot
4. CNR
5. The Alternative Polka
6. Your Horoscope For Today
7. Gump
8. I'll Sue Ya
9. Pretty Fly For A Rabbi
10. Callin' In Sick
11. Bedrock Anthem
12. Nature Trail To Hell

The album closer was the hardest to choose because there's a good case to be made for Albuquerque but I went with NTTH because Al's 80s music is otherwise unrepresented for obvious reasons, and this track is probably his most hard rocking album closer.

I was gonna do Alpocalypse, but you got most of my choices. I used Jurassic Park as the lead single, though. Death & destruction on a one-island scale.

Yeah, but none of those polkas were really about movies...they were just inspired by them...

Even Worse (songs that mock an artist, its style or a character in the lyrics, much like EW`s cover mocked the cover art for Bad)

1. Smells Like Nirvana
2. This Song`s Just Six Words Long
3. My Baby`s in Love With Eddie Vedder
4. Buckingham Blues
5. Jerry Springer
6. I Remember Larry
7. Mr. Popeil
8. Perform This Way
9.Bob
10. Gump
11. CNR
12. Bohemian Polka

I hope I got everything right.

Well that was a freebie (although it doesn't exactly follow the rules).

Yeah, "Polka Party!" was the first idea I had, but then I noticed it would flagrantly disregard the rules so I scrapped it in favor of "In 3-D".
