Just because you think a band sucks doesn't mean the band is weird.

I'm a metal fan but screaming n growling doesn't make a song metal. This band is so overrated as heavy metal pioneers but I can listened to only three of their songs.

Disgusting music, horrible masks, STUPID MAGGOT, THEY ARE SUCK!

I call there brand of metal Pedo-metal cause it's so damn creepy.

Screw you. You have no idea what Jonathan Davis went through and what he's going through right now. I bet you never had the experience of being molested as a child.

47Van Der Graaf Generator

So weird they make Jethro Tull and early Genesis sound positively mainstream. Unusual in that they had no guitars in most of their line-ups, but they did have wailing saxophones. Peter Hamill's vocals are interesting to put it mildly. I am surprised that Comus aren't on this list!

Definitely one of the weirdest-sounding 70s bands, with heavy saxophone and growling organ (! ) instead of lead guitar. Plus Peter Hamill's crazy vocals. They make early Genesis sound positively mainstream!
