The 5 Weirdest Kid's Albums of All Time

Posted by 36 on


We've given you the best, now here's the rest! Presented for your listening pleasure, the top 5 weirdest kid's albums of all time. Take issue with our list? Is this something you can share with the rest of us, Amazing Larry? We wanna know! Leave your suggestions in the comments.

  5. Mr. T -- Treat Your Mother Right (Treat Her Right) Okay, this mother-loving rap is actually from a 1984 video starring the mohawked A-Team star and friend of Nancy Reagan called Be Somebody... Or Be Somebody's Fool! Mr. T did release an incredibly weird kid's album called Mr. T's Commandments, which is also worth hunting for at your local used record hut. It is his touching ode to momma that lives longest in our memories, however. Like a twisted embroidery sampler, Mr. T spells out all the ways his mother sacrificed for him:
"M is for the moan and the miserable groan from the pain that she felt when I was born... Mother, there is no other."
There are no words, just watch. And treat her right, people.     4. Cheech Marin -- My Name Is Cheech, The School Bus Driver This is a fun album by Cheech Marin of Cheech and Chong fame, with a great theme song. We've sung this one at the top of our lungs many a time. However, some might be horrified by the thought of a schoolbus driven by the star of Up In Smoke. Sadly this album is out of print. Bring it back! Kids are missing out! To hear the full song clip, which is highly recommended, click on the link in the player below.
3. Chipmunk Punk
  Alvin & the Chipmunks get all edgy, if you count Billy Joel as edgy. Which we didn't, even when we were ten and lipsynched to this album evey day in our bedroom. We were pretty sure that Tom Petty didn't count as punk either. But who cares? This was our favorite album for a geekily long time. With the legendary 'munk falsettos of Alvin, Simon and Theodore taking on Blondie, The Knack, The Cars, Queen and other early '80s rock radio staples, this ridiculous album was kid heaven.
  2. Sing with Little Marcy at Home
  Little Marcy is a ventriloquist's dummy who sings Christian children's songs in a voice so high it makes Alvin, Simon and  Theodore green with envy. Do we need to continue?
1. Drumroll please. And the number one sublimely odd kid's album of all time is...
  Ali and His Gang Vs. Mr. Tooth Decay
Yes, Muhammad Ali, the greatest. If he can't take out dental disease, who can? We can't describe this weird masterpiece. You must listen for yourselves. You can listen to the whole album online and learn more about it here. At the very least check out this MP3 of the theme song. You won't be sorry.
