Top Five Classic "South Park" Musical Guests
|Sir Elton John goes down to "South Park."|
For 16 seasons now, "South Park" has been delighting viewers with its signature brand of absurdity, skewing any and everything in pop culture along the way. There's been quite a few music superstars immortalized on "South Park," some whose appearances were made without them even being consulted. With their quick production turnaround and utter fearlessness, the show's sent up some of the biggest names in business. We at the Weekly felt now would be a good time to be goin' down to "South Park" and revisit five of our favorites.
Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Meatloaf, Rick James, Ween, Primus and More - "Chef Aid" (1998)
Shortly following "South Park's" initial explosion in popularity, creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were contacted to assemble a soundtrack for the show and feature the talent involved in a subsequent episode. The result was "Chef Aid," which allowed Parker to exercise his musical muscles alongside some of the business' all-time greats. The episode and album also saw the creation of the Chef-spotlighted "VH1 Behind the Music" parody "Behind the Menu."
KoRN - "KoRN's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery" (1999)
Back in 1999, we knew the key to happiness came from drinking Surge soda, wearing Jnco jean-shorts, watching "South Park" and listening to nu-metal. The latter two in mind, "South Park" seemed like the perfect place for KoRN to debut their new single "Falling Away From Me." Showing the guys in the band weren't afraid to poke fun at their public persona, they joined the gang for some "Scooby-Doo" inspired Halloween fun.
