Independent: Phoenix band Okilly Dokilly have a very specific theme – their name, songs, and outfits are themed around friendly Springfield neighbour Ned Flanders. How did the band – consisting of members Head Ned, Bled Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned and Stead Ned – come up with the Simpsons-based idea? “Myself and our drummer were in line at a grocery store [Kwik-E Mart?], entertaining ourselves by coming up with really cutesy names for really hardcore, brutal bands,” lead singer Head Ned told Rip It Up. “The name Okilly Dokilly came up and was very funny to us – we ran with it. I contacted a few friends, and here we are.
Ned Flanders you say? These guys look more like Walter White.
The Ned Flanders seems like it’d be funny for about 7 minutes. Like by the time they got to the car from the Kwik-E Mart queue, that idea should have worn right off.
