Based off what I've read from certain people here, there seems to be plenty of appreciation for novelty music and comedy based music.  Seems to not be a hugely viable, money making branch of the music industry, and most make a quick buck and quickly disappear.  Some make a career out of it.  Some examples of some favorites of mine:
"I Just Had Sex" by The Lonely Island featuring rapper Akon

"Fish Heads" by Barnes and Barnes
Small | Large


"CNR" by "Weird Al" Yankovic, a style parody of The White Stripes, about Charles Nelson Reilly.

Weird Al's probably the biggest known comic musician to make it 'big', at least in the last 25 years or so.  There've been others, Frank Zappa and Spike Jones, notably.  Anyone else have any?

Probably the grand-daddy of them all is Alan Sherman.

The NYC area hardcore band Mucky Pup did their part to bring new life to an old fairy tale:

It's not really novelty, but it's still a funny song! It's from the album A Boy In A Man's World.

Ray Stevens.
Some like The Streak best, but my favorites of his are "It's Me Again Margaret", "I Need Your Help, Barry Manilow", and "The Ballad Of The Blue Cyclone".

"Fish Heads" by Barnes and Barnes
I had their album Voobaha sorry I sold it with most of my records... BILLY MUMY from the old 1960s TV show "Lost In Space" was half of the musical group BARNES AND BARNES.  This was my favorite off their first album:

Abso-freaking-lutely, and a good call.

How about Harry Nilsson of "Lime in the Coconut" fame? What a bizarre and whimsical artist.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
