These songs are ridiculous in a good way and are not necessairily novelty or comedy, but songs that are just plain offbeat or weird.
Suggestions included "Tangerine Speedo" (Caviar), "Knocked Down" (Tubthumping), "Pretty Fly For a White Guy" (Offspring), "Rapmaster Ronnie" (Rethal Bean and the Doonesbury Break Crew), "Date Rape" (Sublime), "You Look Mahverlous" (Billy Crystal), "I Wanna Be a Flintstone" (Screaming Blue Messiahs), "Oh Yea" (Yellow), "Push the Little Daisies" (Ween), "Peaches" (Presidents of the United States of America), "Put Your Hands on the Puppethead" (They Might Be Giants), "Hey Rocky" (Boris Badenov), "Jane Get Me Off This Crazy Thing" (Tee Vee Toons Master Mix), "I Kissed a Girl" (Jill Sobule), "Bitchin' Camaro" (Dead Kennedys), "You'll Dance to Anything" (Dead Milkmen), "Take The Skinheads Bowling" (Camper Von Beethoven), and two I suggested on the air: "Shiny Shiny" (Haze Fantaze) and "A-E-I-O-U" (Ebn Ozn). There's also a quirky new song 91X has been playing: "Naive Song" (Merewase (sp?))
Muckley the host played a Spanish version of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy."
Chris Cantore suggested Bob Goblin's "Pinata", Robin Roth said "Googoomok" by The Cramps, and Hillary suggested her vote for the most ridiculous song was the song named as the winner played at the top of the 9 O'clock hour...
"Detatchable Penis" by King Missle was the winner.
