Howdy ho neighbourino! Have you ever wanted your heavy metal music to be a bit more Flanders-y?

Well, now it is. 'Okilly Dokilly' are an Arizona-based heavy metal band who dress like Ned Flanders from The Simpsons, just because. They all have moustaches, round glasses, and all wear pink polo shirts with green jumpers.

“Most of our songs are direct Ned quotes," the band say on their Facebook page. Don't believe them? Find out for yourself:

"Myself and our drummer (Bled Ned) were in line at a grocery store, entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands," singer Head Ned told Rip It Up.

"The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us,” he says.”We ran with it. I contacted a few friends (Red Ned, Thread Ned and Stead Ned), and here we are. Most of us have played in other bands around our hometown. This is definitely the heaviest sounding project any of us Neds have done."
