Fake Songs is the 2003 album by comedic musician/director Liam Lynch. The album is known for Liam's 2002 top 10 hit single "United States of Whatever" from 2002. Ringo Starr, former drummer for The Beatles, played drums on a few tracks. Some editions of the album came with a bonus DVD of old home movies Liam made. The track "Still Wasted from the Party Last Night" was released as a single EP, and a video for it was featured in Liam's future podcast Lynchland.

The "Fake Songs"Edit

Through out the album, Liam made songs known as the "fake songs". Basically, there songs that are supposed to sound like an artist, such as the Pixies or Talking Heads. Liam mention them as "musical caricatures". There are also afew other "fake songs" that we're not included in the album, they are:

The "Fake White Stripes Song" and "Fake Beatles Song" we're both featured on Lynchs website. Both of the Fake Bob Dylan songs were released on Liam Lynchs podcast, Lynchland, and was in his album More Songs from Lynchland. "Fake Beatles Song" was originally written as a joke, he wrote it for a Beatles cover band named "The Fab Four". They were going to play the song live, saying that it was an "unreleased song by The Beatles".

On some editions of the album, it came with a bonus DVD entitled Fake Movies. The disc includes music videos, skits, and home movies made by Liam himself. Some of the material would later re-appear on Liam's future podcast, Lynchland. Examples include "Flyz" and the Rapbot music video.
