Richard Cheese

It's unfortunate that the cultural value of Limp Bizkit's "Nookie," 2 Live Crew's "Me So Horny," and Beyoncé's "Naughty Girl" seems lost to the generation graced with such rich music, but if there's one man who can point out the timelessness of these tunes it's Richard Cheese. After hearing songs like the Prodigy's "Smack My B**ch Up" and Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice," lounge singer Richard Cheese realized he was living in what he likes to call "a Golden Age of songwriting." It seemed like only he was aware that Slipknot and the Beastie Boys were writing the future standards that were destined to become fixtures of American music, and seeing how cats like Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin were gone, it was up to him to point it out. He donned his tiger-striped tuxedo, rounded up some Vegas-minded musicians for his swanky swing band, and made his debut in 2000 with Lounge Against the Machine, released by the Oglio label.

Cheese's uncensored and "swankified" covers of Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" and Nirvana's "Rape Me" quickly found favor with morning shock jocks on the radio and novelty music fans in the record stores. The CNN cable network and The Los Angeles Times profiled him and he soon landed a gig as co-host and bandleader on MTV's Say What Karaoke series. His second album, Tuxicity, appeared in 2002 and featured swinging covers of Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" and Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back," a favorite among Cheese's fans, who are known as "Dick-Heads."

He had made appearances on the Opie & Anthony and Howard Stern radio shows and led the house band for NBC television's Last Call with Carson Daly before he released I'd Like a Virgin (2004), which featured covers of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" and Michael Jackson's "Beat It," the latter accompanied by a children's choir. Aperitif for Destruction from 2005 featured the Beastie Boys' "Brass Monkey" and Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle." The year 2006 was fan's dream, with both the compilation The Sunny Side of the Moon: The Best of Richard Cheese and the holiday album Silent Nightclub -- "a collection of happenin' holiday hits" -- landing in stores. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

RICHARD CHEESE IS AWESOME!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Gee Rimrock, maybe because he is categorized as swing music? If you don't like it, give it a thumbs down. And why are you seriously paying $54 a year? Free isn't good enough?
slhernlund
I expressly unchecked the allow explicit content button in my profile in order NOT to hear this kind of crap & I don't pay $54.00/year for to hear it. Even the album covers give warnings about explicit content but Pandora doesn't flag his albums or songs and this guy can't even sing. Why in God's name is he included in the 20's- 40's genre?
My new Cheese radio is friggin hilarious!
rick cheese has great CD names

@Justin Barry: Dickshitting batfaggot might be the most hilarious insult in the cosmos.
So smooth. Sunday, bloody sundaaaay!
a real sick person. I love it
jexpo01
A friend of mine introduced this artist to me,it's addictive.
I really love Richards songs, they're all very creative and great to listen to but he has a lack of ability to understand how to treat his listeners. He seems he has some platform to stand on and share his political opinions and remove fans who don't follow lock step with his beliefs. His music is great but he is a dickshitting batfaggot.

I grew up with all these songs and it is great to hear them sung like this. He is a true entertainer, and a genus, if you are not entertained, go read the bible you mindless retards.
i've tried to thik of a way to make this music more listenable, but richard cheese beat me to it. i dont really mind, this is really, great, :)
oh my, when i heard him cover 2 live crews dk almighty, all the very nasty words, i knew he was my kinda artist
he kool
erg... why are there only 3 of Richard's albums on here!?
haha. nice one, passion pink... haha. Richard Cheese kicks motherf**kin g a**! His version of "Nookie" is better than Limp Bizkets
i would say by his song selection, he is making fun of the songs he chooses to parody and may have serious distaste for the orignal songs. or he chooses it for the outrageous lyrics involved.
Quite humerous.... . I f you like Mr. Dick Cheese, you will like the "Lounge-O-Le e r s " . . . t h e y cover songs like Richard but without the potty mouth.....
hi this is desi fundal again, you haven't canceled this song in my list yet, i'm starting to get mad, i KNOW this is how you get a song canceled, i see all the moderators posting comments here, so it must be, besides, its not like there's a simple way to do it like click a little thumbs down icon on the song, so again, please cancel this song in my list, i don't want to have to ask again
Heh heh...
Dick cheese!
Like his style
Please cancel this song in my list, thanks
