3 GWAR GWAR Gwar, often styled as GWAR, is an American heavy metal band formed in Richmond, Virginia, United States, in 1984, composed of and operated by a frequently rotating line-up of musicians, artists and filmmakers collectively known as Slave Pit Inc.
4 Alestorm Alestorm Alestorm is a heavy metal band originally from Perth, Scotland. Their music is characterized by a pirate theme, and as a result they have been dubbed a "pirate metal" band by many critics and their fanbase.

If pirates would make metal, then they would be Alestorm, great music, great humor! Sometimes you can picture whole movies with their songs, 'cause they are so atmospheric and descriptive. I also like other bands like Korpiklaani, Megadeth, Tenacious D, Gloryhammer, Green Day, Bloodhound Gang... but Alestorm, as far as combination of music and humor go are far the best from the bunch in my opinion

The singer is dreadful but they are really very funny (folk/pirate metal).
Songs: Drink, Shipwrecked, Keelhauled. - Metal_Treasure

5 Steel Panther Steel Panther Steel Panther is an American comedy glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics, as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical 1980s "glam metal" lifestyle.
