Of all the fictional characters out there, Ned Flanders is without a doubt the the very least steel. The sweater clad, devoutly spiritual, mustachioed Springfield resident is the most relatives helpful and timid character on The Simpsons, but incredibly, he’s the inspiration for an extremely distinct heavy steel band that fuckin’ shreds.
The band is named Okilly Dokilly, soon after Ned Flanders catchphrase, and if that wasn’t currently great, it gets even greater. Their debut album is known as Howdilly Doodilly, their lyrics integrate Ned Flanders quotations, and they produced a new style — NEDAL.
You have not lived right until you’ve heard “give me a white wine spritzer” screamed gutterally. It’s remarkable.
Oh, also — they gown like Ned Flanders.
ALL. OF. THEM.
Glimpse AT ALL These BADASS Green SWEATERS.
Okilly Dokilly has been all over since 2015, but in April 2019 anything incredible happened. The band was ultimately found by Simpsons government producer Al Jean, and the music video for their track “White Wine Spritzer” performed whilst the credits rolled on episode #659, “I’m Just a Girl Who Can’t Say D’Oh”.
It was, in a phrase, fan-diddly-tastic.
BUT Wait around… There is Additional Very good Information.
What could quite possibly be far better than the basic fact that this is a genuine band that exists? They are Likely ON A US-Extensive TOUR THIS SPRING. In accordance to the band’s internet site, the tour kicks off on April 3 in their hometown, Phoenix, Arizona. The tour operates ideal as a result of to Could, and apparently a particular shock guest will be introduced soon.

Neighborinos, us Neds know the finish times can be bleak. Impending doom is absolutely most likely close to, so we are saying the ‘When The Comet Receives Below Tour’ to distribute Nedly positivity in the encounter of probably certain destruction.
