The Lonely Island – Incredibad

Remember the first time you caught an SNL Digital Short? I do and ever since, I have always found them to be one of the best parts of every Saturday Night Live I have seen… well, now the same guys (The Lonely Island) have produced and written most of those skits have released their own CD. Incredibad not only have the few original SNL skit songs, such as Natalie’s Rap and Lazy Sunday, but they also have a few new songs. The whole CD is 19 songs alone, so that tells you that they have a lot more new material than just old SNL hashes. It is sad that “My Testicles,” “Iran So Far (feat. Adam Levine),” and “Hero Song” are not on it.

I would not say this is one amazing album or one of the funniest things ever, but it does do a good job at showing how much fun the guys had while making this. It is just that through the first listen, while realizing how silly they are, I also could not help but think how catchy and interesting the music and lyrics are. Not to mention, they have some interesting guests on their album, like Norah Jones and of course, Natalie Portman. The videos made the songs a lot better but this is definitely hearing at least once if you like SNL or just silly humor. Just don’t take it seriously.

  2. I could soooo see you making a webcam video of Ke’s Rap. That would be the funniest thing ever.

  3. I didn’t know they were releasing an album, you’re right about how catchy their writing is. I’m honestly impressed with the musical chops on these SNL guys. “jizz in my pants” had a great hook and the lyrics were hilarious. These guys need to invent the video-album, because they do make the songs that much funnier.

  4. Athens: Why don’t you make a webcam video of you rapping? >:O

    Geoff: Yeah, the album did sort of come out of nowhere but I am glad you can sort of agree. It is sort of surprising how great and funny they are, seeing what they do might be one of the few things I still enjoy about SNL.
