Stop whatever you’re doing, get your headphones, and watch this video, NOW.
Believe it. You have just seen an entire band of Ned Flanders(es) performing a metal song inspired by a storyline from the Simpsons.
The group goes by the name of Okilly Dokilly, and although they might be kind of a gimmick, they’re pretty damn good.
Yes, they sport Ned’s meek uniform of green sweaters, pink collared shirts, and round glasses, but it’s safe to say that they sound nothing like they look. Their music is rife with pounding double-kick bass drums and distorted Devil’s tritones on guitar. Not to mention all the guttural screaming from the frontman.
Their unique sound has been called “Heavy Nedal” and “Nedcore.” Most of the band’s lyrics consist of direct Ned Flanders quotes (other tracks, for example, include “Godspeed Little Doodle” and “White Wine Spritzer“). And of course their album is called — what else? — Howdilly Doodilly.
Nice work, neighbors!! I think the good Lord would approve. 😉
