To anchor tonight’s Open Thread, we bring you the J-Geils Band’s infamous cult-hit song, “No Anchovies Please”
This B-Side to the J-Geils Band single “Love Stinks” got almost as much airplay as the A-Side and it quickly became a novelty cult-hit, featuring regularly on comedy-radio shows (like the Dr. Demento Show) nation-wide. While the J-Geils Band was always somewhat known for a certain goofiness to their songs, many, many mainstream pop acts, like The Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash, to name two, have released novelty records that saw one degree or another of success.
Have any of your favorite rock and pop acts done a novelty song? If so, what are they?
