Nightstick are a sludge metal band from Weymouth, Massachusetts, who are often compared to Black Sabbath or Monster Magnet.

The band was formed by ex-Siege drummer Rob Williams.

Nightstick are well known for their unique stage shows which feature a dancing clown called Padoinka. Padoinka the clown is widely considered to be the fourth member of the band and has featured heavily on the art work of all three full length albums. The Padoinka persona has been adopted by several people due to heroin addiction.
