10 AP cover stars who have been on South Park, from Blink-182 to Radiohead

Tonight marks the premiere of the 17th season of South Park, one of the most innovative, biting and consistently funny animated comedies in the history of TV. (And no, I swear Comedy Central isn’t paying me to write this, but if they’re reading, my PayPal address is [REDACTED].)

As a longtime viewer of the show, I’ve noticed a rather large intersection between their choice of musical guests they praise (or kill off) and AP’s cover choices throughout the past 28 years. Don’t believe me? Take a look.
