Okily Dokily and The History of Simpsons Inspired Bands

It took me a few days to truly come to terms that a Ned Flanders metal band, Okily Dokily, exits. But as it’s finally sunk in, I thought, ‘this may be the greatest band idea I’ve ever heard’. This band takes it to the full extreme in Ned Flanders get-up (see picture above) and the Phoenix based band (who calls themselves the only ‘Nedal’ band–yeah, I know pure gold here) has even included direct quotes from the Simpsons’ character and the songs are not half bad. Okily Dokily is not the first Simpsons-themed band (though, I have to admit, the most dedicated and creative). In fact several bands are connected the cartoon as portrayed by this list–top ten are clearly the best names!

Evergreen Terrace

Seems to be in the process of disbanding since the exit of the vocalist–too bad, their band name is badass!

MILHOUSE

Because everythings coming up Milhouse…hahahahaha. Other than Ned Flanders related bands, Milhouse is an excellent runner up for a great band name.

JEBEDIAH

As in Jebedia Springfield, the founder of the town. Still together, touring this year in fact

I VOTED FOR KODOS (IV4K)

Tunes sounds a lot like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and a smidge of Sublime (the beats only); they seem to play shows every once in a while, but for the most but has fizzled out

PRAY FOR MOJO
