Goblin Cock is a heavy metal band from San Diego, California started by Rob Crow of the band Pinback. Musically, they play a form of doom metal/drone metal with rather unusual lyrical subjects, including pop culture songs about the films Godzilla's Revenge, Billy Jack, and the Snuffleupagus from the TV show Sesame Street. All members of the band have taken on stage names. The band is currently signed to Joyful Noise Recordings and has released two albums on the Absolutely Kosher record label. They went on tour for the first time in 2006 and played at the 20th annual South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX.[1] They also performed on September 15, 2005, at the College Music Journal's annual music festival.[2]

Their first album, Bagged and Boarded, was nominated for a 2006 PLUG award for Metal Album of the Year. Their music video for the track "Stumped" directed by Matt Hoyt was also nominated for music Music Video of the Year at the 2006 PLUG Independent Music Awards as well. [3] The album cover [4] is a literal depiction of the group's name, which could also be considered a double entendre. The lyrics in the liner notes are written in runes.[5]
