    I can see that, but at the same time, I've always thought that a band that would sing "wake up and smell the cat food in your bank account" is a bit odd.

    Nice! I have an assload of Frank Zappa in my collection, I've seen Ween a few times, and...well...the Dead Milkmen... I have a LOT of Dead Milkmen stories.

    Never heard of Cornbugs, though. Guess I should check them out, if they're in the same sentence as the rest of those artists/bands.

    Daniel Johnston is one of those artists that I enjoy some of his works, but others are just too out there. I'm just glad that he's able to keep his mental illness under control nowadays.

    Have you ever listened to R. Stevie Moore? If you liked Daniel Johnston, you should give R. Stevie Moore a listen. He's been doing home recordings since the late 60's, and still does even today. His music is a little out there at times, but a lot more together and produced than Daniel Johnston's self produced works.

    Here's a few songs of his that I really like:
    R. Stevie Moore - Conflict of Interest (1980) - YouTube
    R. Stevie Moore - Little Man (1976) - YouTube
    R. Stevie Moore - Another Day Slips Away (2006) - YouTube

    One of my friends has that song as her ringtone for whenever I call her. Needless to say, we both like to quote that song whenever we've had a few beers.

    @Satoshi-kun; Hahah! Don't Let's Start is an awesome song. They have weirder lyrics though "wake up, put on my makeup and pick the rake up and rake my hair"
    What I love about them is that at face value their lyrics seem random and stupid but often they are very clever.

    I have a lot of Frank Zappa albums myself. Cornbugs aren't really good but they are very weird xD Link

    Daniel Johnston has a lot of songs, they can't all be winners :b
    I think he's a really interesting person, because of his mental illness and how he uses his music and art to express himself.

    I have heard of Stevie Moore actually! I used to watch a show on MTV. I forgot what it was called but it used to feature 'out there' bands and music videos. He looks as quirky as the Milkmen xD

    I've always thought "Frontier Psychiatrist" by The Avalanches was an odd song, as is "Since I Left You" by the same band, but I love both music videos. Haven't listened to any more of their stuff but I do like it.

    They are quite good. Well constructed songs.

    They are made up of bits of other songs stitched together. And an excerpt from Polyester.

    So I've noticed, after finally deciding to listen to a few more of their songs XD I absolutely love "Electricity." Definitely a band whose music I will be exploring for a while.

    Sadly Since I Left You is the only album they currently have, though word has it that we might finally be seeing a second one within the near future.

    Probably The Hazzards, a ukulele band that is best known for their hit single "Gay Boyfriend". The song was originally written for the ukulele, though now they usually use the dance remix.
