A Ned Flanders Metal Band is Trying to Create a New Genre

In an ever evolving world of interconnectedness it grows more and more unlikely by the day to be introduced to a truly unique musical idea.  Well…today is a lucky day for all of you who yearn for something original. 

Meet “Okilly Dokilly” – A Ned Flanders Themed Metal Band.  Yes, they are real.  What are their names?  Head Ned, Red Ned, Stead Ned, Bled Ned and Thread Ned.  You can argue with your friends as to which way you'd assign their names.

While shopping at a convenience store, two of the members were sharing a laugh at coming up with softcore names for hardcore bands and they stumbled upon the idea of a Ned Flanders metal band.Their song titles, such as “They Warned Me” are clever hints of Ned quotes in episodes of The Simpsons.  They are all avid Simpsons and Futurama aficionados and are watching avidly when they aren’t creating Ned influenced puns to use in their lyrics.

Head Ned told Rip It Up when asked how they compare to other Simpsons based bands: “We're not as fast as Bartcore, and a little cleaner than Krusty Punk.  They actually refer to the genre they play as "Nedal".

Okilly Dokilly will have their debut in their hometown of Phoenix Arizona on September 5th

What do they sound like?  Well….imagine Satan and Ned Flanders were locked in a house for a few weeks with Marshall stacks, some Ibanez guitars, a drum kit, recording software and maybe a little bit of acid….but I’ll let you be the judge.  Leave a comment on your thoughts.
