Five artists begging to be riffed on by the new Beavis and Butthead

We're sure you've heard by now that Beavis & Butt-head, the staple of '90s-era MTV, is returning in a new series to help break up the monotony of the reality-show programming choices on the network. While MTV hasn't yet officially confirmed what the NY Post reported two months ago, the network also hasn't denied it -- and that's nearly as good as an official announcement.

As fans of the moronic lampooning of equally moronic pop stars that was B&B's bread and butter, we couldn't be happier about its imminent return. In fact, while we've been waiting around for an official announcement, we've come up with a list of the top five acts we hope to see skewered by everyone's favorite mouth-breathing morons at their earliest opportunity. Our list awaits you...

5) Animal Collective Watch a few minutes of that embedded video and then take a guess at what the boys might make out of it. Yeah, that's fertile ground there -- plus we'd give decent odds that it incites a seizure in Beavis, and that's always a good time. We doubt the idiot twins will come up with anything quite as insightful as our own Thorin Klosowski's contention that Animal Collective is just two Beach Boys records playing at the same time, but they'll certainly manage a few zingers of their own.

4) John Mayer Someone needs to take this doughy-faced jackass to task for lyrics like "One pair of candy lips and your bubblegum tongue" and for still getting the girl despite being a doughy-faced jackass, and we can't think of any better commentators to do it than two half-retarded junior-high metal fans. Let 'im have it, Butt-head!
