We’re all for taking chances, and we fucking love it when an artist digs deep and surprises us with something unexpectedly awesome. But sometimes bands go for broke on their records and end up with egg on their collective face. Sometimes those bands are from Las Vegas. And in the end, the entertainment value is unintended; they’re not in on the joke; they are the joke! Well, the folks at Cracked gave the issue some thought and came up with this list of The Five Most Unintentionally Funny Albums of 2006.
5. My Chemical Romance – The Black Parade
4. The Mars Volta – Amputechture
3. Jibbs – Jibbs Feat Jibbs
2. Belle & Sebastian – The Life Pursuit
1. Dragon Force – Inhuman Rampage
You raised your eyebrows twice! Let us help. First, Dragon Force. Who the fuck are Dragon Force? Cracked says they are “a living, breathing, walking cliché of such epic proportions, it makes Spinal Tap seem like an actual documentary.” To help support the assertion, they direct you to this video. But closer to your hearts are B&S, and all you need to know is that Cracked ain’t down with the twee: “Their music is the sound of two Smurfs hugging” and “is so ridiculously happy, it makes Care Bears look goth.” Something tells us they love Morrissey.
So we know full well how Chris Ott would answer, but what do YOU think are the year’s most unintentionally hilarious records? Actually, we have a pretty good idea about y’all, too. But tell us anyway! We love hilarity.
