Just forget the words and sing along

It's a rare, rare honor when a celebrity gets to make a return guest appearance on The Simpsons. And now, joining that small fraternity is none other than my hero..."Weird Al" Yankovic.

At the start of the TV season, it was revealed that Weird Al would be making a second appearance on The Simpsons. And today, the official "Weird Al" Yankovic website reports that the second Weird Al episode is on January 27!

According to Wikipedia, the episode is called That 90's Show. In it, we finally find out why Homer never reunited with the B-Sharps and conquered the music world. The plot: we flashback to the early 1990s. We find out that Homer gave up music so Marge could go to university. However, when Marge starts falling for one of her professors, Homer returns to music and starts a rock band called Sadgasm. The end result? Home invents grunge music.

Just like when I first heard the premise of the first Weird Al episode, Three Gays of the Condo, I'm left scratching my head wondering, "How does Weird Al fit into this?" To fit with the invention of grunge music theme, will we get a little of Smells Like Nirvana?

Find out on January 27!
