    I know I can't be the only one who listens to music that is cheesy for laughs... but also for some musical enlightenment. Examples:

    Dio. Dio really does have a great voice/great band, but his delievery and his subject matter are hilarious.

    Journey. I don't know how much I really like them, but when I hear a Journey song, I rock hard. Everything about Journey is just... funny. Sad thing is, they started out a proggy rock band, then Steve Perry came into the picture and turned them into a musical joke. *insert laughing all the way to the bank comment*

    Ever heard of a small band outta the long beach area called The Ziggens? They got quite a few 'cheezy' tunes that are just great, along with some just rad surfy music.

    Ya mean other than Weird Al Yankovic? Of course, back in the day, Frank Zappa and the Mothers were pioneering that same sort of song parody send-up - but with even better musicianship...

    Or did you mean music that takes itself seriously - but actually comes out cheesy? For me, that would be Foreigner - except that I never really liked Foreigner...

    Well I don't find Tears for Fears cheesy; merely dated. I think they had some brilliant songwriting.

    if not for the sheer redneck of it, at least for the bass solo!

    The Blue Oyster Cult created some of the worst rock cliches known to man. Their music flows from my speakers like a river of Velveeta melting over nachos, and I love very second of it.

    I'm sorry - I really love that bass line.

    Oh yeah, them too. Their guitarists are insane. But they're almost too cheese.
