You Know You Have Made it When….

Your song gets a parody done by Weird “Al” Yankovic!

That’s exactly what happened with Imagine Dragons song “Radioactive”. In an interview with Vegas Seven Magazine, the band was asked, individually, when they realized that they’d reached worldwide fame.

Drummer Daniel Platzman took the lead and said, “I’m stealing this one.”

Then he enthusiastically spoke of the Weird Al moment.

“It’s long, long been felt in the Platzman family that you know you’ve made it when Weird Al Yankovic parodies your song,” Platzman said. “I called and said, ‘Everyone get on the phone at once!’

“I told them, and they freaked out more than they did when we were on the Grammys. It was the biggest Platzman family freak-out of them all.”

Platzman’s bandmates laughed at that retelling. Up next to field the question was the band’s bassist, Ben McKee.

“Well,” he said, “Dan just took mine.”
