Weird Al, Rick Springfield and Jordin Sparks Audition for the Star Wars Cantina Band (Video)

Spoiler alert: they’re mostly terrible.

Being a Mos Eisley Cantina band member must be one of the most coveted jobs in the galaxy, as evidenced by this hilarious and star-studded video of musicians hoping to light up the dingy and smoke-filled stage.

College Humor partnered up with Lucasfilm to make the video, which is an appropriate (if sporadically funny) tribute to Tattooine’s favorite band.

Popular musicians such as Chris Daughtry, Ben Folds, Jordin Sparks, Weird Al and Mark McGrath basically play Jedi-fied versions of themselves, complete with delightfully punny names like “Chris Darthtry” and “Muark Mccccc’ Wrath.”

Highlights include Rick Springfield using the force to play a terrible guitar solo and Lisa Loeb auditioning live via hologram during the middle of a galactic war.
