They're All Gonna Laugh At You

Résumé
They're All Gonna Laugh at You! is the debut album by American actor and comedian Adam Sandler, released in 1993. The title comes from a repeated line in the track "Oh Mom...", which is a parody of a scene in the film Carrie. Several of the tracks on the album feature adult humor, a departure from the material in his films, which were generally rated PG or PG-13. This is a trend that would continue on his subsequent comedy albums and live tours. In late 2022, the song "At a Medium Pace" received mild internet attention on sites such as TikTok and YouTube, due to a sped-up version of the song sounding like a member of Alvin and the Chipmunks. At the time of the recording, Adam Sandler was in the middle of his five-season career at Saturday Night Live and much of this album was made with the help of his friends from the show. Besides Sandler, the album features fellow SNL performers Rob Schneider, David Spade, Chris Farley, and Tim Meadows, as well as SNL writers Conan O'Brien, Robert Smigel, and career writing partner Tim Herlihy. The album was also produced by G.E. Smith, SNL's musical director at the time. Several friends of Sandler's also perform and co-write on the album, some of whom would go on to become recurring players in Sandler's films, most notably Allen Covert. In addition to several non-musical skits, the album includes five songs, two of which were performed live (and previously were performed on SNL: "The Thanksgiving Song" and "Lunchlady Land") at The Strand in Redondo Beach, California on July 25, 1993., while "Food Innuendo Guy" is an uptempo George Thorogood meets Aerosmith-influenced blues rocker, "At a Medium Pace" is a sexually explicit love song, and "My Little Chicken" is a jazzy humorous number, in which Sandler sings about his love for chickens. The album was nominated for Best Comedy Album at the 37th Annual Grammy Awards. It has been certified 2× platinum, having sold over two million copies. As of 2014, sales in the United States have exceeded 1,831,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
