(Radio.com) Say hi-dilly-ho to the world's first and -- let's be honest -- only Ned Flanders-themed metal (or, "nedal") band in existence. Okilly Dokilly, the Fresh Outta Springfield metal band (actually out of Phoenix, Arizona) are truly one of a gosh darn kind, and just performed their first show in their home town last month.
