Submit a Band

(Know a band weirder than these people? Clue us in!)

If you’re in a weird band, know a weird band, or just feel like spamming us with your crappy press releases, email us at weirdestbandintheworld@gmail.com. Or better yet, post a link here to the band’s website or YouTube videos so our whole community of weirdness connoisseurs can judge. Fun!

YouTube links or embeds welcome, and you can use a fake email address to post a comment…we just force you to take that extra step because it helps slow down the spambots. (Thanks for your patience, eatme@yousuck.com.) Just remember that email addresses are not posted to the site and a fake email address means we can’t contact you to let you know if we post one of your suggestions (although we forget to do that half the time, anyway).

  1. THERE IS A BAND WITH ALL GLORY COMING FROM FREQUENCY THE KING. I APPLAUD ALL ATTEMPTS WITH YOUR HOLES BE THEM WIDE OR NARROW. WE ARE WHITE MUD TRAIL SOUTH AND WE NEED YOUR ATTENTION

  2. You guys don’t have enough blues on here. I submit T-model Ford, convicted murderer, father of 26 children… very strange playing style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3V2GWlcUg4

  3. Pushing for these weirdos to make it on the official weird list. Epic Rock. Giant pig lawyers. Walking casanova moustaches that put Dowton Abbey to shame (and make Mr. B blush). And this self-love-able panda who teaches hygiene. Who says Nashville is all Country.

    And here they go with the Live thang

  4. Guess you have these guys covered and just missed them in the list, but hey, just in case..
    Naked City. (What Mike Patton has tried to emulate ever since.)

    Also:
    Farmer’s Market (Norway)
    Goat (Sweden)
    Bohren und der Club of Gore
    Chrome

    (I just realised I’ve only seen the most recent page of comments here, so forgive any dupe suggestions (I’m on the darned smartphone, which, yes, is SO a good excuse))

    • That was like the politest comment ever. Haven’t you heard the Internet is all about trolling?

      Also, we actually don’t have Naked City on here yet. So yeah, we probably suck.

  5. cLOUDDEAD anyone? Not the weirdest this website will ever see, but nor will they be the most “normal.”

  6. Meltybrains?

    While there are many acts who would lay claim to the experimental tag, Meltybrains? are one of the few who genuinely fall into that category. Firmly planted in the extraordinary and the bizarre, they manage to infuse their array of influences (dub, hip-hop, post-rock) with a sense of melody that keeps them on the right side of noise for noise’s sake. As one fan put it, “A Meltybrains? show is like the most beautiful woman you have met in your entire life taking a shit on your face”. As you might well gather from all this, this is one pretty unique band.

    • I’m two minutes into this video and still waiting for them to shit on my face. Auto-Tuned vocals are more like getting peed on.

  7. Professor Elemental and the British chap movement.

    • Ah yes, this fellow. Now that we Americans are finally done watching “Downtown Abbey” Season Three, it does seem like a good time to add him to The Weird List.

  8. genocide organ

    They are pretty wierd

  9. Wilhelm Bernadotte

    http://www.myspace.com/shapeshiftingaliens

    check out “Stay”, a 3/4 tune, sounds almost like a hybrid between Tom Waits and David Bowie.

    Can also be heard on Spotify as well as on Youtube, on an even stranger animated video

  10. Elfman inspired circus metal band Stolen Babies

  11. The most evil band in the universe: Cock E.S.P.

  12. Ok last time I tried Detektivbyrån and you said it wasn’t too weird. How about Anders Flanders the last member remaining in the band. He kinda let loose and did a crazy 1 man band thing. half crazy/ sad half kinda impressive.

    And while I am at it I have been away for a little bit
    I don’t think I have heard anyone mention Wesley Willis

    You can watch his movie if you want to understand him better

    That is all for now
    thanks


  13. Im kinda surprised you guys didnt have Melt-Banana

  14. Not sure if this is weird enough for you, but I trust you’ll find this interview with Radio Werewolf at least a tiny bit odd. (Also, their music is amazing. Like an ethereal Diamanda Galas.)

  15. This is one of the most original and wierdest bands I have ever heard. Experimental Noise/Grind, but not the type you’re thinking of. It’s hard to explain so just listen:

  16. http://jonoftheshred.wix.com/apocalypticdawn

    http://jonoftheshred.net/

    This is basically like Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” meets The Walking Dead plus Ennio Morricone on a sheet of LSD.
    Or…
    The Who’s “Tommy” meets World War Z plus John Williams on a bunch of peyote.
    Or….
    Meat Loaf and Jim Steinmans “Bat Out Of Hell” meets Night of the Living Dead plus Hans Zimmer on an ounce of mushrooms.

    “His music may very well topple the fascist regime that has our world in a violent, oppressive stranglehold.”​
    - Anonymous
    “Quite epic, the Ennio Morricone of the 21st century!”​
    - Jean-Pierre
    “new joe satriani!”​
    - Dan Whitfield
    “what jon lacks in modesty he makes up for in badassedness”​
    - Van Tek

  17. Yesterday I found about about a electronica musician named Renard Queenston, whats interesting about him is he produces his music using 14 anthropomorphic (furry) personas, each with a different musical style. here are some samples.
