Forget Satan: Ned Flanders Is Heavy Metal's New Muse Thanks to Okilly Dokilly
Stupid sexy Phoenix rock band.
For a genre typically associated with Satan, heavy metal just got a whole lot holier.
A new metal act hailing from Phoenix -- Okilly Dokilly, emphasis on the "kill" -- is branding itself as the world's first "Nedal" band. That means they dress like The Simpsons' God-fearing, oppressively straitlaced character Ned Flanders and base their songs on memorable Flanders quotes -- "It's like I'm wearing nothing at all," "They warned me the devil would be attractive," etc.
A few thoughts on this:
1) This is an incredible idea executed with just the right amount of effort.
2) Ned is left-handed, which is historically associated with evil. Perhaps this makes too much sense.
3) Metal just got even whiter.
4) Their music is making it hard for me to think straight. Why did I have that wine cooler last month?
Check out their demo-rinos below, and if you're in Phoenix, you can check out their first show this September.
