Running with Scissors is the tenth studio album by "Weird Al" Yankovic, released on June 29, 1999. It was the fourth studio album self-produced by Yankovic. It was the first album for Volcano Records after leaving Scotti Brothers. The musical styles on the album are built around parodies and pastiches of pop and rock music of the late 1990s, largely targeting alternative rock and hip-hop.

Running With Scissors. Studio Album by "Weird Al" Yankovic. Recording of Running With Scissors began in October 1998, with the first track recorded being 'Germs'. A couple of days later, he recorded 'Truck Drivin' Song', 'Albuquerque', 'Your Horoscope For Today' and 'My Baby's In Love With Eddie Vedder' (The rest of the original songs on the album). Although 'The Weird Al Show Theme' was recorded in 1997, it is not counted as it was not recorded in the actual Running With Scissors recording sessions.

Running With Scissors is Weird Al’s 10th studio album, released the year before the new millennium. This album consists of parodies and pastiches of The Offspring, Barenaked Ladies, Nine Inch Nails, Spice Girls, Beastie Boys, Smash Mouth, Hanson and MANY MORE! Running with Scissors Q&A. Producers Weird Al Yankovic. Writers Aaron Huffman (Rock), Adam Yauch, Ad-Rock & 49 more. Clarinet Joel Peskin.

The originals tend to come off as forced, as though Yankovic is trying way too hard to live up to his nickname; although the snarky rip of "My Baby's in Love With Eddie Vedder" hits pretty close to the mark, the 11-minute closer "Albuquerque" is interminable. Overall, there are some songs worthy of adding to Yankovic's next best-of, and some more that no one will miss.

Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of "Weird Al" Yankovic. Redirected from Medium Rarities). Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of "Weird Al" Yankovic is a 15-album box set by American comedy musician "Weird Al" Yankovic, released on November 24, 2017. The set is housed inside a replica of Yankovic's accordion, whence its name is derived. This "unprecedented" style of packaging caused the entire set to have a rather long lead manufacturing time

Weird Al bounced back with Even Worse, a 1988 album that found him reconnecting with Michael Jackson for a hit, but the more interesting elements lay elsewhere. It took savage wit to turn Mony Mony into Alimony, and the Beastie Boys spoof on Twister worked because it concentrated on the sound, not the words. Running With Scissors, from 1999, is where the mature Weird Al Yankovic arrives. Less eager to please and more confident in his craft, he doesn’t go for easy jokes; he picks the right modern hits to mock (the Offspring’s Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) gets spun into Pretty Fly for a Rabbi ). There’s evident care given to the originals, and when he digs into the past, there’s a context: An ode to the Star Wars prequels, The Saga Begins, benefits from its association with Don McLean’s American Pie, since both are artifacts of the ‘70s.
