Okilly Dokilly is a metalcore band from Phoenix, Arizona that plays "Nedal" music; a subgenre of metal music themed around the animated character Ned Flanders from the television series The Simpsons. All five of the band's members perform dressed as Flanders, and the majority of the lyrics to their songs are quotes of his.
The band members go by the names Head Ned, Bled Ned, Red Ned, Thread Ned and Stead Ned. The unusual concept behind the group has resulted in worldwide attention. The lead singer, Head Ned, said that Nedal music is "Not as fast as Bartcore, and a little cleaner than Krusty Punk”, references to hardcore punk and crust punk, respectively.
As of June 12, 2017, the band has acquired over 49,000 likes on Facebook. The band's first studio album, Howdilly Doodilly, was released on November 11, 2016. They announced their first nationwide tour via YouTube on February 5, 2017. On March 3, the band announced on instagram that Stead Ned and Thread Ned would be replaced on the upcoming tour by Dead Ned and Cred Ned on lead guitar and bass, respectively.
On the 31st of July the Band announced that Bled Ned, Red Ned, Cred Ned and Dead Ned left the Band and will be replaced by Shred Ned (guitars), Dread Ned (drums) and Zed Ned (synth) with the only remaining original Member being Head Ned. The Band also announced in the same news that they are working on their second Studio Album with the current working title Howdilly Twodilly.
