Okilly Dokilly based on Simpsons character Ned Flanders

Are you a big fan of metal and The Simpsons? Have you been waiting all your life for the day that your two loves could finally be brought together? Well, today’s your lucky day with the discovery of Okilly Dokilly - that is a Ned Flanders-themed metal band, as Metal Hammer reports.

They specify that they are the world’s only “Nedal” band and hail from Phoenix, Arizona, led by Head Ned - we'd hazard a guess that isn't his real name. That’s them above, proving that they’re certainly committed to the cause, all decked out in Flanders’ attire. Many of their lyrics are also quoted from Ned Flanders so there may be a recognisable line or two in there when you give Okilly Dokilly Demos a listen below. If you're local to Phoenix, they're playing their first hometown show on September 5, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
