"eBay" is a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. It is a parody of "I Want It That Way" by Backstreet Boys. In it, the narrator describes how he impulsively purchases unneeded (and bizarre) items on eBay (among them being "Shatner's old toupee" and "a Kleenex used by Dr. Dre"). The single was taken from his eleventh studio album Poodle Hat.


Released in 2003, "eBay" debuted at number fifteen on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles.[1]

Music video[edit]
