I thought "Green Eggs and Ham" was going to be on BHD?

I think since "Numb" and "Alapalooza" were released in the same year, it would probably be too dated for BHD. Plus, it was on the 1993 Al Music special promoting "Alapalooza" so I think it's safe to assume it was planned for that album no matter what Wikipedia tells us. Besides, he already had a different U2 parody in mind for BHD.

The reason, from what I've read, for "Green Eggs & Ham" not being released on any album was because permission was denied by the Dr. Seuss estate.

Yeah, GEaH was denied by the Seuss estate so he did "Cavity Search."

So, he couldn't record it, but he's allowed to use it in a special?

I don't understand. I guess cause he wasn't selling it?

Livin' In The Fridge would have fit really well in the new medley. Would love to see this parody live!

From what I recall, MuchMusic let Al get away with A LOT of stuff that he could've never pulled off in the States.
