The Absolute Best Novelty Songs Of The Modern Era

Although the best novelty songs are meant to make people laugh; not everyone finds the same type of humor funny. It is this reason that there is often so much debate on these types of songs. The criteria I chose to make up the list you see below was fairly simple, and while there may be a few songs in there that experts consider not to belong, I believe the list to be pretty solid.

If I found a song to be exceptionally funny, strange, or bizarre then I included it on the list (I told you the criteria were simple).

I would love for people to include their favorite novelty songs in the comments section, as I know that there are many that I may have missed. Lists such as these are always incomplete. A word of warning: some of these songs do have bad language in them. I hope you enjoy the list; there are some real gems in it that I know I had never heard before.
