Ladies and gentlemen, meet my new favorite band: Mac Sabbath!
They’re a Black Sabbath parody band featuring evil mirror-universe versions of McDonald’s characters:
- “Ronald Osbourne” on vocals, as a gene-splice of Ronald McDonald and drugged-out Sabbath-era Ozzy Osbourne,
- a modified Mayor McCheese with tusks on guitar, taking Tony Iommi’s role,
- the Hamburglar on drums, filling in for legendary alcoholic rhythmatist Bill Ward, and
- my personal favourite, an evil version of Grimace, taking over for Geezer Butler on bass.
They don’t just dress up as McDonald’s characters; they also twist Sabbath’s tunes into odes to fast food. In their (presumably greasy) hands, Paranoid becomes Pair-a-Buns, and Iron Man becomes Frying Pan:
A sample of the lyrics:
Heavy longing for bed
Fry these cows until you’re fed
Throw out your raisin bran
Frying pan lives again
I’d love to hear their version of Supernaut — perhaps it’s called “Coffee’s hot”?
Enjoy your Saturday with Frying Pan…
And here’s Pair-a-Buns:
