Paul McCartney Shot Down Weird Al Yankovic Over Chicken Parody Song

Weird Al Yankovic is out and about promoting his new album “Apocalypse” and dropping some amusing tales – like the time Paul McCartney stopped him from parodying his “Live and Let Die” hit.

Yankovic had originally wanted to change the title to “Chicken Pot Pie” but McCartney insisted he find a different subject. “He didn’t want a song used in any context that would be supposedly promoting the consumption of animal flesh,” the comedian recently recalled on the ‘The B.S. Report‘ podcast.

“It’s a valid reason and I get it,” continued Yankovic, himself a vegetarian. “And I hate it when people put him on the list of humorless guys, because that wasn’t the case at all. In fact, he said, ‘Think of any other subject and I’m happy to OK it.’”

While Yankovic has never officially released the song, he has performed it live in concert. Those curious can check out a crappy recording of it here.

In an interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop, Weird Al revealed why he went vegetarian saying, “Many years ago I found out something about hamburgers that really grossed me out. You may not know this, so I hope I don’t make you sick, but it turns out hamburgers are actually made out of dead cows. I am not making this up. Needless to say, as soon as I discovered that, I gave up meat entirely.”

According to the site Sing365.com, the comedian changed his diet in 1992 after reading the book “Diet For A New America.”
