Some bands don't wait around for Weird Al to parody one of their songs, and take a pre-emptive strike and write a silly song of their own.

Entries Beginning with C

"CaliFORE Tour ," Huey Lewis and the News
The first time I saw the band it was at the Lacuna Seca Raceway near Monterey and Salinas. They were on the "Cali-FORE" Tour of May-June 1987 to promote the "FORE!" album that was released the year before. This mini-tour consisted of FOUR/FORE shows in CaliFOREnia - Petaluma, Angels Camp, Lacuna Seca, and Marin County (Bay Area).
I Chase California Girls!
"Chump," Green Day
I don't know you but I think I hate you... You're the reason for my misery...
Optimus Lime
"Cobwebs & Strange," The Who
One of Keith Moon's few compositions with the band, it's an instrumental that sounds very much like a demented circus parade. Each member of the band contributes on trombone, penny whistle and ukelele.
"Coincidence, maybe?," Paul Revere & the Raiders
the band's singer and organist Paul Revere (real name, originally "Paul Revere Dick") passed away over the weekend. The band was notorious for wearing American Revolutionary Era costumes at their performances. Paul Revere died at the unique and ironic age of 76! That's right, as in 1776 = year of Declaration of Independence. Geddit?
Spiritwalker of 76
"Cover of the Rolling Stone," Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show
This entire song is about wishing to be on Rolling Stone Magazine and there's a lot of satire in this song.
Paul Warren
"A Cure for the Itch," Linkin Park
A purely electronic piece of music by a nu-metal band.
