If you’ve heard Lynch’s grating (though mercifully brief) novelty hit ”The United States of Whatever” — a lo-fi version of Frank Zappa’s ”Valley Girl,” without the wit or the musicality — you’ve heard most of what you need to know about his debut album. Lynch, best known for his involvement in MTV’s generally dull sock-puppet show Sifl & Olly, crams Fake Songs with parodies and toss-offs that make Weird Al seem like James Thurber. Avoid unless you’re just starting college, in which case the album will be issued with your orientation materials.
