The Most Hilarious South Park Musician Parodies That Still Make Us Laugh Forever

The folks at South Park do not mess around. When they parody someone, they go all out. And with famous musicians, there’s just so much fodder. You remember the Kanye West “gay fish” saga (which we’re pretty sure Kanye is still moody about). Show writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone can literally never run out of musicians to parody because, like Yeezy, musicians will always do things that warrant parodying. Hell, even if they don’t, South Park will parody them anyway. The latest musician to find themselves on the SP chopping block is VH1 You Oughta Know superstar Lorde, who unlike Kayne, has been a very good sport about it all.

But Kayne and Lorde aren’t the only ones to get the cartoon treatment. Jennifer Lopez has been a hand puppet, Bono has been a giant turd, Barbara Streisand has been a dinosaur, Celine Dion was married to Terence (of Terence and Philip fame) and Stevie Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac as a goat. When you put it like that, Lorde got off pretty easy. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fit all the wonderful musician cameos on SP into this list (there’s SO many!), so instead we’ve made a list of the best musician parodies from the shows’ 18 seasons.


“The Cissy”, Season 18, Episode 3
Last week Lorde appeared on South Park. Sort of. In the South Park-verse, our favorite character, Randy Marsh, actually moonlights as Lorde. It’s every bit as wonderful as it sounds. Nearly two weeks later, the Internet is still going wild for this parody, so if you haven’t seen it yet, make that the next thing you do today.


Kanye West

“Fishsticks”, Season 13, Episode 5 and “The Hobbit”, Season 17, Episode 10
Kanye West is an easy target, mostly because he seemingly has no sense of humor about himself and gets super riled up every time South Park makes fun of him, which is now twice. Hopefully, they’ll make fun of him again sometime, because it’s too easy and too hilarious. In “Fishsticks” Kanye doesn’t get a joke about being a gay fish (the fact that the real Kanye didn’t get this joke about him not getting a joke just makes the episode funnier), and in “The Hobbit” he has to explain to everyone why Kim Kardashian isn’t a hobbit. Both are marvelous comedy viewing.


 Jennifer Lopez

“Fat Butt and Pancake Head”, Season 7, Episode 5
