One rock band is creating a niche in the world of McDonalds themed heavy metal. Mac Sabbath rocks out with their McDonald’s themed spoofs. With jams, like Frying Pan, Sweet Beef, Pair-Of-Buns and Chicken For The Slaves, the band turns Black Sabbath hits into “drive-Thru metal.”
Clad as Ronald McDonald, Grimace, the Hamburglar and Mayor McCheese, the group has been playing underground shows and recording tracks. Digital Spy reports that the happy meal-themed characters take over the personas of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler. Only recently has the group allowed their manager to take the band public with a Facebook page.
A message, written by the band’s manager, on the group’s Facebook profile page reads, “Mac Sabbath has been a truly underground entity for sometime now playing secret shows only in locations I am not allowed to mention.”
The manager continues:
“I have recently convinced Ronald Osbourne and the gang to come out of hiding and play some above ground shows and allow me to bring them into the light personally through Facebook for starters. “As their manager I have agreed to a no photo or video policy at shows, as Ronald insists that they have traveled here through a very delicate part of the time space continuum and that this will damage society as we know it.
“I am working on how to get around that. But no cell phone use is permitted and will be punished in a non negotiable manor (sic).
“If anyone is interested in letting me book this project in a legitimate venue, let me know. Keep in mind, since this will be the first (and possibly only) above ground show for ‘Mac Sabbath’ in the US, the money and circumstances will have to be right.”
Book your show now, hungry fast food fans. Mac Sabbath is ready for a ‘super sized’ spotlight.
