Default Your favorite bands with gimmicks?

I enjoy metal. A lot. And there are a few bands that have gimmicks to make themselves stick out. Or maybe they're not really a "gimmick" per se and they exist only to **** around and/or piss people off.

So, here are a few that I can think of.



Band: Alestorm
Gimmick: Pirate-themed power metal/folk metal
Song: Shipwrecked



Band: Hatebeak
Gimmick: African Grey parrot as the vocalist in a death metal band. Lots of puns.
Song: Bird Seeds of Vengeance



Band: Apocalyptica
Gimmick: Not really a gimmick, but.. they play metal on cellos. And they're friggin' amazing live.
Song: Stairway to Heaven




Soo.. anyone else want to share theirs? Doesn't matter what genre it is. I like all varieties of music.

@The Macho Man

This is some good stuff. I love me some grindcore.


Also, I was just reminded of a few bands...

Band: Larry David
Gimmick: Larry David-inspired grindcore
Song: Mopy Dick



Band: Macabre
Gimmick: "Murder" metal .. songs about serial killers.
Songs: Jeffrey Dahmer and the Chocolate Factory and The Cat Came Back



Band: Cattle Decapitation
Gimmick: Vegetarian death metal/goregrind band. Songs are generally about environmental issues or the treatment of animals at factory farms.
Song: Regret and the Grave


When I was a young stoner, I really liked Necro. Now? Not so much.. But, he did do a great song that stands up even post-stoner and post-adolescence: I Need Drugs


@L.Kizzle

I tried looking up P-Funk on YouTube but I'm not sure if I found the right band. Sounded pretty cool from what I heard though. Very funky.

Not true. I think they're alright/decent. They have some great songs and some horribly shitty ones as well.

Corn on Macabre. Not really a gimmick necessarily, just liked horror movies.

I dig it. The beginning sounded a lot like old black metal. But then it went a little more punk on me.

I have the same reaction to them. I love Duality, reminds me of an extreme System of a Down song.
