The dream tour of 2019 features a McDonald’s-theme Black Sabbath tribute band plus a metal band based on The Simpsons’ Ned Flanders

I am soooooo in for this.

Mac Sabbath is an LA-based Black Sabbath tribute act whose members dressed up as McDonald’s characters. Out front is Ronald Osbourne (dressed as Ronald McDonald, of course), whos is backed up by Slayer MacCheeze, Grimalice, and Catburgler. They tweak Sabbath songs so they have fast food themes. For example, “Paranoid” becomes “Pair-A-Buns.”

They have the endorsement no one less than Ozzy himself.

Then there’s Arizona’s Okilly Dokilly, which is a metal band whose members all look like Ned Flanders from The Simpsons. They call their music “heavy nedal.”

If you watch The Simpsons, you may have seen Okilly Dokilly play the closing credits for an episode this past season.

In what may be the dream matchup of the 21st century, Mac Sabbath and Okilly Dokilly will hit the road together on The American Cheese Tour 2019. They will also play the annual Gathering of the Juggalos in Springfield, Indiana.

Who’s with me?
