I have seen it in a concert that I have download on the net...


As stated already, the NIN soundalike "Germs" is on the "Running With Scissors" album, but since you mentioned the live performance, you might want to also track down the concert DVD "'Weird Al' Yankovic Live!"

Unless I'm thinking of another disc, it was a Region-free DVD. I'm not sure if you're in the area with PAL or SECAM televisions, but I have been told that color systems aren't usually a problem on computer DVD-ROMs (someone who actually has a player like that on their computer may have to verify that for me).

I don't want to embarrass you or anything, but in the English language, objects don't typically have gender--well, except ships, which are generally feminine. "It" would have sufficed in the case of a musical composition. Of course, that isn't to say that there isn't a certain charm to the French choice of pronouns; in fact, just ignore this post and continue using the word "she," which I now find to be the superior pronoun. Elle est une très bonne chante! She's a great song, isn't she?

Are the songs that Al uses popular in France? Do you get a lot of American music there?

Al is a fan of Tenacious D.

ShigN, don't apologize for your English. You're doing quite well. If you are interested, I wrote a post for the non-American members to help explain the pop culture references in Couch Potato:
