Meet ‘Okilly Dokilly’: The Ned Flanders-themed metal band

It can be pretty hard to get yourself noticed as a metal band in 2015, unless you come up with this idea.

It can be pretty hard to get yourself noticed as a metal band in 2015. In my opinion, the last metal band to stand out and change the course of that genre was Slayer – and how do you improve on that?

These guys may not be able to stand up to Slayer in regards to power and stage presence (again, my opinion), but “Okilly Dokilly” from Phoenix, Arizona has quite an unusual theme: their outfits, name and songs all are based around the classic Simpsons character, Ned Flanders.

With their music described as “crunchy, lo-fi guitar and shrill, lurching synth” by the Independent, some might be wondering where they came up with the idea for their band. From the Independent:

“Myself and our drummer were in line at a grocery store [Kwik-E Mart?], entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands,” lead singer Head Ned told Rip It Up.

“The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us – we ran with it. I contacted a few friends, and here we are.

“Most of us have played in other bands around our hometown. This is definitely the heaviest sounding project any of us Neds have done.”


You can hear a sampling of their music in the link below:

    Good music, but…nowadays, since the music industry–esp. The ‘Metal/Hardcore’ genre–is imo one based on music, not a gimmick.

    I mean, point proven…You wouldn’t of been giving them a full page otherwise.
