Anti-Beatles novelty:

Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

'novelty' does that one a great disservice!

Well, if we can agree that novelty doesn't mean it can't be genius - and I suspect a lot of us would be down with that - then I think it's fair enough. To me a lot of these are very tongue-in-cheek - but it's also possessed of a fair amount of genius.

There are certainly a couple of real loonie songs there!

Isn't 'The Reality Of Air-Fried Borsk' one?
