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 P

"Panama," Van Halen
During December 1989 the Cold War had ended peacefully. However, Panamanian strongman Manuel Noreiga had declared that Panama and the U.S.A. were in a state of war. With the memories of the 1979-1981 Iran hostage crisis still pretty fresh and Noreiga threatening the American forces in the Canal Zone the U.S. invaded Panama. Noreiga was soon cornered and holed up in a Vatican embassy. The U.S. Army played loud music in order to have Noreiga come out and surrender. Some of the songs blasted loudly included the Animals' "We Got to Get Outta This Place" and of course, "Panama" by Van Halen. This may be the first use of rock'n'roll as a weapon of war. Manuel Noreiga surrendered to the U.S. Army on January 2, 1990.
Kold Warrior
"Perverse (album)," Jesus Jones'
This is the first album written and recorded on a computer. It's a classic and a masterpiece in every way.
Zeroes And Ones Devil U Know
"Piss On The Wall," J. Geils Band
This song is the last track on Freeze Frame and the title says it all
Tim Hall
"Poor Man's Moody Blues," Barclay James Harvest
Barclay James Harvest was always criticized by being a Poor Man's Moody Blues. So they made a song that's a style-parody of "Nights in Whits Satin".
Paul Warren
"POW! (Theme to "What's up, Tiger Lilly")," The Lovin' Spoonful
Being the theme song for a 1965 Woody Allen film by overdubbing a Japanese film, The Lovin' Spoonful made a witty theme song and even guest starred in the film.
Paul Warren
"Powdered Milk Man!," Aquabats
This jumpy ska number starts off with someone saying, "I Am Powdered Milk Man!" in an electronically filtered voice in a lampoon of Ozzy Osbourne's intro in "Iron Man" by the heavy metal band Black Sabbath.
Paranoid War Piggy
