Dear God! There is a Ned Flanders themed metal band called Okilly Dokilly
Meet Okilly Dokilly – the world’s first (and presumably last) Ned Flanders themed metal band.
Formed last month, the Phoenix-based group were unearthed by Adelaide street press Rip It Up and pretty much embody everything you could possibly want from a band dedicated to all things Flanderino. They dress like Ned. They talk like Ned. And they are all called – you guessed it – Ned.
Speaking to Rip It Up, the band revealed just what metal – or “Nedal” music as they have coined it – sounds like: “Not as fast as Bartcore, and a little cleaner than Krusty Punk,” Head Ned said. “Not as heavy as Homer J.ent – Nedal is a happy medium in the Simpscene.”
Elaborating on where the idea for the Okilly Dokilly’s came from Head Ned revealed the band’s origin story: “Myself and our drummer [Bled Ned] were in line at a grocery store, entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands. The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us,” he said. “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.”
And while it may sound like a total joke, the band are the real deal. You can even listen to some of their music – including their ode to the Leftorium ‘All That Is Left’ – below.
