Comedy/Spoken » Musical Comedy » Comedy Rock

Comedy Rock is rock music that has designed to poke fun at rock traditions, as well as mainstream society. It is humorous both in its musical attack and in its lyrics. Sometimes comedy rock can be sophomoric -- its godfather, Frank Zappa, loved jokes about fecal matter and big boobs -- but at its best, it cleverly skewers clich├ęs and conventions.
