Mac Sabbath is an American parody heavy metal tribute band formed in Los Angeles, California in 2014. The self-appointed founders of Drive Thru Metal , the band is primarily a parody of English heavy metal group Black Sabbath, utilizing lyricism and imagery centered on fast food. Musically, Mac Sabbath performs faithful covers of Black Sabbath’s songs with only the lyrics humorously re-written and re-arranged. For example, the band's repertoire includes such parodies as Pair-a-Buns” (“Paranoid ), Frying Pan ( Iron Man ), Sweet Beef ( Sweet Leaf”), Never Say Diet ( Never Say Die ) and Zipping Up the Uniform ( Symptom of the Universe’) Although all of the band's lyrics focus on the umbrella topic of fast food, Mac Sabbath takes a decidedly satirical and condemnatory perspective on the corporate food industry, addressing areas such as fast food’s negative health effects and lack of nutritional value as well as genetically modified food, consumerism and low wage McJobs.Mac Sabbath is visually inspired by characters from McDonaldland, the fantasy world which fast food restaurant McDonald's uses in its marketing campaigns geared towards children. Performing in elaborate costuming, the band's line-up consists of vocalist Ronald Osbourne, guitarist Slayer MacCheeze, bassist Grimalice and drummer the Catburglar, alternately known as Peter Criss Cut Fries .
