The songs were played on Mars' surface, and since Mars has an atmosphere, the songs travelled.

Actually, it's in three places. But that's cool. I think Al is probably thrilled about it. I mean, could he have guessed back when he was recording My Balogna in the Bathroom Of Future Fame that one of his songs would be played ON MARS?!? Seriously, when you think about it, that is pretty freakin' cool!

It really should be up on The Mothership. Now he's not only a triple grammy winner, but he's Intergalactically famous! Can Prince say that? Eminem? Coolio?

That's one of the first songs to be played on Mars ever! Someday our great great grandchildren will be showing this song to their kids saying, "This was one of the first songs ever played on Mars. His name was "Weird Al" Yankovic. He made funny songs back when physical compact discs were popular. Your great great great grandfather iisryan used to listen to him..."

Can they say "intergalactically famous"? I doubt they even know what it means!

This sounds great but seeing that humans are (as far as we know) the only living creatures in the galaxy it's safe to say that all of those artists you mentioned are "intergalactacally famous".

Mars is in our galaxy. :stern:


But it's still a really cool use of an Al song. :)
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

Why do you think they chose Trash Day above all other Al songs?

Trash Day, by Weird Al Yankovic. (Crew starts Mars day after California midnight, part of the sol dedicated to deleting contents of flash.)

That's why. :)
