        Do 28d28D"Weird Al" Yankovic specialty[------] answer and 36d36D"The ___ Begins": "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Star Wars"-themed "American Pie" parody[----] clue bother you? One implies criticism, one doesn’t. One is Fair Use in copyright law, the other is not.

          I don't think they're mutually exclusive. I'd say that in most of Weird Al's songs, the music is parodic and the lyrics are satirical.
