If Lady Gaga's nude butt didn't illuminate the tone of "Born This Way," then the surrealist image of her face and arms fused with a hellish-motorcycle will brighten it to near-sun levels.

This image, which MTV has called "surreal," came shortly before the "gaga saga" of 2011--wherein Weird Al Yankovic proposed a parody of "Born This Way" called "I Perform This Way," was denied by Gaga management, and then later approved by Gaga herself. Fun times, fun times.

In the spirit of Weird Al, DC9 at Night would like to propose a few parodies of our own. Album cover parodies, that is. We're not looking to stomp in Weird Al's ground here (OK, maybe we are), but we think we have some solid ideas for Recording Executive Folks. Make the jump to see our top five.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
