[Pick of the Week] The Top 10 Weirdest Bands in the World

THE TOP 10 WEIRDEST BANDS

So this list is not all-inclusive, but it's just a compilation of some of the weirdest bands I've come across.  I'm not saying that these bands are bad, because a lot of them put out some pretty decent music, with a few exceptions.  But here goes, the Top 10 weirdest bands I could think of:

#10 ) Bad Religion

This band isn't so much weird, as that they defy the conventions of punk music.  Lead singer has received his Ph.D. at Cornell University and teaches courses in paleontology and life sciences at UCLA.  He does this punk band on the side and the lyrics stretch the horizons for the power of politics through song.

#9) The Clever Hamsters Jazz Band

I think the name alone is interesting, but the band members may be even more so being entirely composed of Hamsters.  This band has been has been traveling through the wheels of the world, exciting audiences everywhere.

#8) Buckethead

This guy is a virtuoso guitarist who released 29 studio albums and is one of the best guitarists in the world.  He usually is in concert with a white bucket on his head and an expressionless white mask.

#7) The Muppets

Could you imagine if someone from outer space came to our planet and saw The Muppets?  Granted, they are some of the greatest vocalists of the 20th and 21st century, but they are by all means...very strange.

#6) Mr. Bungle

Mr. Bungle was an experimental band from the sunny state of California that was active from the Mid 80's to 2004.  They were well known for their crazy song structure and would often run through several genres in one single song.  The band would often dress up in costumes and masks on stage and they had a heavy cult following.

#5) GWAR

This is a rock band founded in the 1980's that would dress up in elaborate sci-fi/horror movie costumes and were well-known for their really obscene lyrics combined with raunchy stage performances that would re-enact morally taboo subjects.  Their current lead singer goes under the name "Oderus Urungus."

#4) All Girls Topless Band

This was an all-girls band that came from New Jersey in the 1960's.  The main reason their shows were so popular was because they were...you guessed it...topless.  Rumor has it they were hounded by the Bra police and moved their band to Las Vegas, where the law was more relaxed.

#3) Marilyn Manson

Brian Hugh Warner put together his stage name by combining the names of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson.  He has been attacked from all fronts by children activists for the violent lyrics of his music and is one of the most fascinating musical artists out there.  He was born in Ohio and is rumored to wear his leather boots 24/7.

#2) Amon Amarth

This is a Swedish metal band that is heavily influenced by J.R.R Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. They base most of their songs on Norse mythology and love everything Viking.  I guess that's good if you like death metal and Viking songs...but I don't.

#1) The Zimmers

The Zimmers have been active since 2007 and are the oldest band in the world.  Their oldest member Buster Martin claims to be 103 years old.  They released their first album Lust for Life in 2008.

What are some strange bands that you know of?

I thought the Zimmers were more of a vocal group. They don't play any instruments.
