Ten Bands That Should (And Ten Bands That Shouldn’t) Grace Us With A Cover Of “Yakety Sax”

41p333z2s3l sl500 aa240  Ten Bands That Should (And Ten Bands That Shouldn’t) Grace Us With A Cover Of “Yakety Sax”I don’t know about you, but the dog days of August are making me long for some levity. And what better way to bring in some hilarity than to think about the late Boots Randolph’s delightful “Yakety Sax,” a.k.a. “that Benny Hill Show song,” a.k.a. the best way to make any YouTube clip hilarious? Noted “Yakety Sax” enthusiast Jess Harvell and I put together a pair of lists related to the song—namely, a top 10 countdown of artists who need to cover the song soon, and a counterpoint list of 10 artists who should never get within a 25-mile radius of its implied hilarity, for fear of ruining it for all time. The countdowns after the jump.


Feel free to listen to Randolph’s original track as you peruse the two lists:



The Ten Artists That Definitely Need To Cover “Yakety Sax” ASAP:
10. Slayer
9. Tom Waits
8. Rahzel
7. The User (but only if he uses dot-matrix printers)
6. Kronos Quartet
5. Wendy & Lisa
4. Mighty Mighty Bosstones
3. R. Kelly
2. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
1. “Weird Al” Yankovic


OK, so that last one? Something of a gimme. To counterbalance it:


The Ten Artists That Should Stay As Far Away From Boots Randolph’s Triumph As Possible:
10. Dave Matthews Band
9. Grizzly Bear
8. Creed
7. Cat Power
6. James Taylor
5. Baz Luhrmann
4. 4 Non Blondes
3. Mariah Carey
2. brokenCYDE
1. Phish


The countdown to someone digging up a moldy clip of Phish doing “Yakety Sax” starts now, I guess.
