Everyone's favourite music parody master (and polka king) "Weird Al" Yankovic has dusted off the ol' accordion and is getting ready to release his 14th studio album "Mandatory Fun" on July 15th. This summer release officially marks over three glorious decades of "Weird Al" gracing our lives with his one of a kind brand of musical humour.

Earlier this year, rumours were running rampant that "Mandatory Fun" would tragically be Al's last album. But never fear. Our polka-loving hero clarified that the album is only his last under his current label contract with RCA and that he is far from finished with releasing music, though he's more likely to release videos and digital singles going forward.

In fact, he's launching this new album with eight music videos released daily, beginning with "Tacky," his star-studded take on Pharrell's "Happy."

So to honour the arrival of his 14th (!) album "Mandatory Fun," here's a look back at the best of 'Weird Al' from the past 31 years.
