It seems like a right of passage for many artists to have their songs covered by parody artist Weird Al, but one singer wasn't a fan. 

Weird Al Yankovic has been in the business of making fun of some of the biggest names in music since the late 1970s. Some of his songs you still know, like "Eat It," "White and Nerdy," and the Nirvana parody "Smells Like Nirvana." Artists usually agree for the opportunity for Weird Al to release a parody of the song, with many enjoying the songs. Almost like a testament to the success of their own songs.

Many fans and critics alike have wondered, which artists have not been fans of Werid Al making a parody of their songs. In a new interview with the Today show, Weird Al told Kathy Lee and Hoda who was the only artist that would not allow him to do a parody of their song. Technically from a legal perspective, he doesn't need permission to make a parody, but Weird Al acknowledged why he likes to ask for permission from the artists. Check out the interview above.
