    Man, that’s just wacky to see those bands in one sentence in reference to rocking and being silly. You’re not wrong.

    One of my favorites - Frank Zappa’s Apostrophe / Overnight Sensation.

    Bloodhound Gang, Blink 182, Sum 41, Sublime, Men Without Hats, They Might Be Giants, Tenacious D, Ugly Kid Joe, Green Jelly / Jello, The Dead Milkmen, Dee Lite, Squeeze.

    Does Weird Al count? Because he is just as talented as any “serious” musician.

    Also, The Presidents of the United States of America.

      Unlike the other bands listed in this thread, Weird Al manages to rock even when he’s covering other musical genres!

      I was waiting for someone to say TPUSA. Their entire first album is basically the answer to this question.

      The song “More Bad Times” came on my Spotify radio playlist a few years back. I had never heard the song before. I was dying of laughter. I was not at all prepared for a song that silly.

    Peter Gabriel era Genesis was pretty goofy, as well as some of his solo stuff.

    King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is pretty much the goofiest band known to man right now; especially if you listen to their earlier stuff like Cellophane or Vegemite.

    Mr Bungle. The singer from faith no more. Apparently he liked hiding his turds in ventilation ducs in the hotels while he was on tour. Also made fun of the other lead singer of RHCP.

      That’s because Anthony Kiedis thought very little of Mike Patton around the time of “Epic” I don’t know if they ever settled on the matter.

        He thought Mike Patton was biting his style! I recently watched the video for Epic and I can kind of see what Kiedis is saying but honestly RHCP never had a hit like Epic before it was released. Mother’s Milk was released a few months later.

    Just rock or is metal allowed? Cus if so:

    1. Ghost (Ghost B.C. in the UK) is very silly. Guys dressed in corpsepaint clergy, sounding like a hodgepodge of 70’s/80’s hits you missed. They got lore too, which is appropriately silly.

    2. Electric Callboy is silly. They are… Like, deathcore mixed with whatever they feel like for that song. We Got the Moves is deathcore with a bit of hard bass, for example. And it’s a song about partying. Pump It is about going to the gym. Spaceman is about a guy going to space and rapping in german. Honestly one of my favourite bands.

    3. Wind Rose is silly as hell. Bearded guys, singing about dwarf stuff. They covered Diggy Diggy Hole and blew up, and props to them because their version is a banger, but they got good original stuff too which is sadly overlooked because Diggy Diggy Hole was just that good.

    4. Powerwolf is another one, similar to Ghost. They’re vampiric werewolves? And their songs are all in-keeping with that theme. Power metal though, unlike Ghost.

    5. Austrian Death Machine is also silly. Voice actors emulating Arnold while the vocalist growls about lifting weights, the cookie monster, jingle bells, getting to the choppah, etc. The vocalist’s history has kind of soured the band for me though.

    6. Gnome is underrated. Their songs are simplistic as hell, and none of them are virtuosos. But their songs go hard. Wenceslas is great, Ambrosius as well. Edit: writing this gave me an earworm and went down Gnome’s songs. Their bassist is a goddamn genius. Simple licks that sound great, and they got weird time sig changes here and there that tickle my brain in the best ways. I can’t figure out if they are actual time sig changes or just weird changes, and I love that.

      Nanowar of Steel is great too. Who else would make a Rhapsody of Fire tribute/parody, make it about Barbie, and then get the original Rhapsody singer to do lead vocals.

      Thank you, gnome is fucking rad!

      Back on topic, Haken love some goofy stuff, and there’s always primus, who do very little serious (but it’s been a few decades, I’m out of date! I loved too many puppies )

      Igorrr is always a scream, very noise would be a great example.

      I fell like hip-hop often is irreverent or silly, and I’m not thinking of just satirical acts like Goldie lookin chain (although they are classic ), but the herbaliser were regularly entertaining, often more than just samples

      Mos def wrote some absolute bangers (under a few names), here’s a great example where it’s been mashed up with Marvin gaye and absolutely bounces along

      For something a bit dancier, Marmaduke duke were often a giggle

      I’m sorry all my links are probably a bit AWOL, I’m new to piped

          I honestly think their version is not as good as Toto’s. Their cover closely matches the style of the original and they aren’t as good musicians. I was hoping they would make it a Weezer style cover. Toto’s version of Hash Pipe is better than Weezer’s too.

    I think I saw someone mention them, but I can’t find them now. They’re pretty silly, but also their songs are unironically fun to listen to as well.

    Hands down my favorite band ever (though, Faith No More could claim that spot depending on my mood.). Put their entire library on shuffle and you’d think you’re listening to multiple bands. Extremely talented musicians, quirky songs, fun compositions, and a variety and uniqueness rarely found coming from one band.

    All hail the mighty Boognish!

      I will never stop being sad over when the Primus website stopped being primussucks.com for primusville or what the fuck ever.

      Real heads remember that “Primus sucks” is the clarion call of people who fucking love Primus.

          You are indeed correct, sir or madam or other.

          Although with the explosion of new music styles, I’d argue that Primus needs its own actual categorization. Funk-Metal or something akin to that.
