parody cover bands are always hit or miss. for every DREAD ZEPPELIN, RICHARD CHEESE, STEEL PANTHER, THE RUTLES or "WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC who locate a thoughtful new wrinkle in an established genre's sound or a prominent band's catalogue, there are countless stultifying lame attempts too numerous and worthless to even mention by name.
coming across MAC SABBATH recently i think this may be one of the most COMPELLING and THOUGHT-PROVOKING parody bands ever: an OZZY OSBOURNE-era BLACK SABBATH cover band whose soul mission is to warn against the societal danger that is fast food. so far the "SWEET BEEF" song and video is the high-watermark and most SUCCESSFUL expression of their viewpoint, but i cant wait for more from RONALD OSBOURNE, SLAYER MACCHEESE, GRIMALICE and CATBURGLAR in the coming years.
dude, the guitarist's name is SLAYER MACCHEESE and the drummer has a costume that is PETER CRISS of KISS as the HAMBURGLAR. what is not to like? this is literally too good to be true. MAC SABBATH is highly recommended and most definitely worth checking out.
