With "Junk Food Junkie," songwriter Larry Groce took on the holier-than-thou health-food movement of the '70s. His song told the tale of a man living a double life -- by day, he was into all-natural, organic, unsweetened, everything-free, plain-jane healthy food. But at night, he indulged his addiction to junk food, including Twinkies, potato chips, Dr. Pepper, and more.

"Junk Food Junkie" isn't the best song ever written, but it struck a nerve. That's what has to happen for a total novelty song to get into the top 10 on the Billboard Chart.
