Ok, in order to be a novelty band (for the purposes of this thread) one must meet a two criteria:

1. Be in a band.
2. Carry a cohesive "gimmick" through all their songs (this disqualifies Weird Al)

I bring you....

The Upper Crust

RIYL: Old AC/DC, people who like to dress up like fops.

listen to, "Let Them Eat Rock"

1. Lindsay Lohans band in "Freaky Friday"

It just occurred to me that UG attracts a lot of socially isolated male teenagers with questionable psychological dispositions.

Spinal Tap is playing at Live Earth later on. I guess they are then. Probably the best, IMO.

I didn't look through the whole thread, but, has anyone mentioned KISS?

1. They're a band.
2. THEY'RE ****ING KISS MAN!

By that criteria tons of bands are novelty bands. Almost all mainstream rock bands have songs about women and love. Almost all metal songs have a violent theme.

Anyway, the Mentors get my vote.

The Aquabats are a good novelty band.

Other worth mentions are Spinal Tap and Dethklok if they count.

But please don't mention Slipknot
