Flight of the Conchords mine several musical genres for comedy gold—and platinum, when they're really on. The New Zealand duo (Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement) use rap, folk, French pop, and rock 'n' (d)roll as springboards for lyrical satire and cliché inversions that inspire laughs with nearly every verse. Creating humorous songs that can withstand more than a few listens is incredibly difficult. FOTC's hit-to-miss ratio is phenomenal.
