Weird Al Yankovic Style Parodies - very hard!

By popular* demand! Often when Weird Al wants to parody or pay homage to an artist and can't get permission to parody a specific song or doesn't want to parody a specific song, he will do a "style" parody imitating the style of a particular artist without actually copying their songs note for note. Below are the Weird Al songs that do this. Name the artist or artists being parodied. This should be more challenging than the previous Weird Al Parodies quizzes.

If you search up Weird Al you can find a few quizzes that are a bit easier than this one. One that was featured on the front page, one other by me, and at least one other user-created quiz. I know this one is all but impossible, even for me and I made the quiz. :) But there were several that I knew beforehand. Like "germs"- obviously a riff on my favorite band Nine Inch Nails.
