Hey everyone, for lack of a better word that I can think of, I'm looking for "weird" music. When I say this I mean anything from Mr Bungle to jazzy stuff to more popular stuff like Meatloaf

heres some examples:

might not be much of a help but you can probably see im not really confined to metal or any genre in particular.

Dog Fashion Disco,more like a heavier version of Mr. Bungle meets SOAD

The Battles,experimental math rock

Genghis Tron,they say it's "cybergrind",i call it some "core" mixed with electronics,i don't know why,but i like it
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqGU6YuBjOc

Yakuza,experimental jazz metal,post metal
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkNQ8_mw ... re=related

Bloodiest,sludge-post rock hybrid featuring members from Yakuza,very nice

Les Discrets,this being one of my latest obsession.This french band combines post rock,shoegaze and black metal,always with clean vocals though.It's not really "weird music",it actually is very beautiful and intense music.

that's all i can think of from the top of my head right now.

EDIT
Zamla Mammas Manna,70's prog from Sweden

If you're still looking for weird music, then. There's always http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwXGyZQI9rE


Listen to the whole song, and tell me it's not at least a bit weird. Though in my opinion it's very good.

King of Parody and all that is Weird. "Weird Al" Yankovic...Polka rock genius! Check out his original material...always totally amazing. Genius In France, Albuquerque, Stuck In A Closet With Vanna White, Young, Dumb & Ugly..tons of good original weird rock material and he makes fun of songs that kinda just sucked beforehand...usually about food items. His band has been with him for all 13 albums since 1983..check out their genius solo work as well (Bassist/composer - Stephen Jay, Guitarist - Jim Kimo West, Drummer - Jon "Bermuda" Shwartz) really awesome band in the end, makes his albums and live show quite amazing. I like to listen to them when Im not listening to metal or hard rock.
