Who remembers this gem from 1998. SIDE NOTE: It’s hard to believe that South Park has been on the air that long, and maintained it’s popularity, but creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have always had their finger on the pulse of pop culture. In the second season (back when Chef was prominent character), Chef discovers that Alanis Morissette’s hit song “Stinky Britches” is actually a song he wrote year ago. While trying to get compensation for this, things turn around and somehow Chef is the one who ends up jail. The boys decide to throw a music fundraiser for Chef entitled “Chef Aid” featuring musicians like Ozzy Osborne, Joe Strummer and Wyclef Jean Not only was this a popular episode, but it turned into a popular album. It even had it’s own spin-off of Behind the Music.
With songs like Chocolate Salty Balls, the album did very well on the UK, Canada, and US charts.
As much as this is a comical and spoof filled album, it did feature some surprisingly good songs. On this album you’ll find a completely different version of Wyclef’s Bubblegoose (I would like it more if it didn’t have Cartman’s voice on it) and a really good track from Joe Strummer.
