Posted by on

They may not have planned for it to happen, but The Lonely Island is one of the best rap groups ever. The comedy music trio has launched into the stratosphere thanks to their hilarious SNL videos and their Grammy and Oscar-nominated hit “Everything is Awesome” from The Lego Movie. Now with a new movie coming out, they’re bound to be bigger than ever. While we all have at least one favorite Lonely Island song, (who hasn’t heard “Dick in Box,” “Lazy Sunday” or “I’m on a Boat”?), we picked out some of their best, most underrated gems. And be sure to tune into College Humor’s Comedy Music Hall of Fame June 19th at 10P for more of your comedy music favorites.

10. “Sax Man”

This song is the most important thing to happen to a sax men since The Lost Boys. No lyric tops the actual sax parts.


9. “Hugs”

This’ll teach you not to read too much into that hug you got.

Best Lyric: Hugged so many ladies, arms shaky and shit
Because I’m the Wilt Chamberlain of the upper-body grip
.


8. “Great Day”

In a rare break from rap, the group sings a show tune about a guy who’s clearly self-medicating.

Best lyric: Much of the ocean is still unexplored/how did I get up in this tree?


7. “Diaper Money”

Just a bunch of dudes with dad bod rapping about responsibility.

Best Lyric: I did it my way, a very small percent of the time way


6. “Ras Trent”

This song perfectly encapsulates that one person you know who appropriates Rastafarian culture.

Best lyric: Red Stripe, Shabba, ragamuffin and culture


5. “No Homo”

Let’s be honest, this is what a bro is really trying to say to his bros when he yells “no homo.”

Best Lyric: Hey yo no homo but today I’m coming out the closet
Wanna scream it from the mountains like a gay prophet


4. “I Run NY”

No song has ever been truer about New York City.

Best lyric: Yo, I double literally run New York:
I run the marathon
Plus I organized it
So I double run the marathon


3. “Semicolon”

This important song explains how to properly use a semicolon.

Best lyric: You’re acting all Ma-chee-o; Ralph
But I’ll eat all you cats; Alf


2. “Spell it Out”

Rappers love to spell things. In this case, they spell the whole damn song.

Best Lyric: D-U-D-E-T-H-A-T-H-A-S-S-E-X-W-I-T-H-P-I-G-S-F
O-R-M-O-N-E-Y­-B-U-T-O-N-L-Y-A-S-A-S-I-D-E-T
H-I-N-G-R-I-G-H-T-N-O-W


1. “Jack Sparrow”

For us, it doesn’t get any better than Michael Bolton singing an ode to “The Jester of Tortuga,” Forrest Gump, Erin Brockovich and Scarface.

Best lyric: Capt Jack! Johnny Depp! Davy Jones! Giant squid!

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
