Prepare your diddly-holes for this odd musical selection. There is a band named The Okilly Dokillys, based on The Simpsons Church lovin’ do gooder Ned Flanders.
Yes, yes…”stupid sexy Flanders”. Hit the jump for more details on this unusual mix of music and pop culture, including a watch/listen to their FIRST music video.
Simpsons-inspired band, The Okilly Dokillys, are legit. Their name, songs, and outfits are themed around friendly Springfield neighbor Ned Flanders. Even more weird, they’re a Rock band. Clearly, a genre of music Ned Flanders himself would likely protest.
In terms of how they fit in with other Simpsons-themed music, the lead band member, who refers to himself as “Head Ned” says:
“Not as fast as Bartcore, and a little cleaner than Krusty Punk. Not as heavy as ‘Homer J.ent – Nedal is a happy medium in the Simpscene.”
If you look passed the green sweater and pink polo’s, you might find The Okilly Dokillys live up to their namesake.
Their first music video sets up the Flanders lookalikes in a pink room, and films them as they set about destroying their instruments, the set and just about anything else they can get their hands on.
How did the band – consisting of members Head Ned, Bled Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned and Stead Ned – come up with the Simpsons-based idea?
“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.
The Nedal (ned metal) outfit announced earlier this month that they are psyching up to release their debut album Howdilly Doodilly on Friday, 11th November,
“When we recorded Howdilly Doodilly our only goal was to make a record that was really brutalino” says Okilly Dokilly lead singer Head Ned about the forthcoming record.
