    Don't know if it should or shouldn't count, but Ugly Duckling - Introduckling. Oldschool 80s style rap group and the song is specifically to introduce the audience to the group's members. It's also got great lyrics.

    When I was a youth, one of my uncles told me a cousin of mine was in that band and gave me an autographed vinyl.

    I'm sure I still have it somewhere.
