April Fools' is generally the worst.
There's the old saw "All rock stars want to be comedians, and all comedians want to be rock stars," but let's face it: Eddie Murphy's music is subpar (except for that reggae tune... and "Party All the Time"... hold on there might be a flaw in this logic), and the jokes of musicians generally fall kinda flat.
That being said, these are the social media stunts that made us guffaw. Or at least chortle. A snicker or two might have escaped our lips.

Kyle Hollingsworth Sues Joel Cummins for Riff Infringement
Riff Infringement - Lawsuit Filed Against Joel CumminsIt's a tough day for me, I've decided enough is enough and finally sued Joel Cummins of Umphrey's McGee for Riff Infringement. After years of his stealing my licks, I can no longer be friendly about the situation to another keyboardist, I'm taking Joel to court.Formal Statement via offices of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe LLP:In a feud that has gone unnoticed for nearly two decades, String Cheese Incident keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth has finally decided to take on Joel Cummins, keyboardist of Umphrey’s McGee. Cummins’ blatant plagiarism has blurred lines between his own music and that of Hollingsworth. After Hollingsworth’s many friendly requests for Cummins to change his course of songwriting, it appears time Cummins has got to give it up.This battle on the stage has turned into what is sure to become a battle in court.Posted by Kyle Hollingsworth on Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Not the worst acting we've seen by a musician. Just watch Madonna in a Dick Tracy. THAT's the worst.

1. Shpongle's secret Spice Girls remix
How much time does Supersillyus have on his hands??
So I was hanging out with Shpongle (Simon Posford) the other day. I waited for him to leave the room before i made my move. I opened his laptop, guessed his password (it was 12345) and attempted to look under the hood to see just what it is that he really does... but i found something else... his computer was empty... except for this Shpongle V. The Spice Girls mashup. Which I present to you now.Posted by Supersillyus on Wednesday, April 1, 2015
