Thunderdikk

Magnum Love

Review by Rick Damigella

When was the last time you had fun listening to a band? I’m talking about real fun. I don't mean sort of fun. I mean the kind of fun that makes you want to stand up (even if you are driving) and play an unabashed air guitar solo or pump your fist at an air audience while singing into your air microphone like you were part of the band. Magnum Love, the debut album from Thunderdikk delivers that kind of fun in an extra-large package. Thunderdikk rocks in the traditional five-man formation, with dual guitars for maximum head banging effectiveness. While we have featured Thunderdikk here in a previous edition of MSJ, it makes sense to remind you, dear reader, of who Thunderdikk is: Vocalist Dikk Thunder (no, really, that’s his name), lead guitarist Sleaze Paladino, rhythm guitarist Johnny Razor, Mickey Brunswick on bass and Snake “Skin” Paladino on drums. Should you find yourself becoming a fan, be proud in the knowledge that you are officially a Dikkhead in the eyes of the band.

At first glance and listen you might be tempted to say "oh, they're doing an 80s metal shtick.” And you couldn't be more wrong, because Thunderdikk plays with more musical talent than two dozen forgotten Sunset Strip metal bands combined. They back up their declaration of being "the last living rock band" with well-placed riffage, blistering guitar solos and sing-a-long choruses all packed into songs that you want to hear over and over again. I'm not exaggerating by saying I spun the album three times in a row during my first listen. Two things that elevate Thunderdikk well above bands that play in a similar mode are its vocalist and lead guitarist. Dikk Thunder is a true front man who knows how to command a stage. By the end of a live performance he and the band can have the entire audience, even first timers, rocking out and having a really good time. Lead guitarist Sleaze Paladino has guitar chops that most wannabe axe slingers could only dream of having. He plays with the passion and authority of someone raised in the golden age of metal, but who, instead of just emulating his heroes, carved out his own niche in the six-string spectrum. Throughout the album, Paladino proves with his playing that there are still unexplored riffs and solos to be played; something many of his forebears seem to have either forgotten or eschew for lack of their own creativity.

Before we get into the track-by-track; a word of caution. Thunderdikk is NSFW, Not Safe for your mom, not safe for small animals and not safe for your girlfriend if you take natural male enhancement. Ok, kidding about that last part, sort of anyway. There are overtly naughty themes in their lyrics and song titles with words you wouldn’t say in front of grandma. If you aren't easily offended and don't mind hearing about Dikk Thunder’s horizontal exploits then, great! You are ready to find out why this should be considered the party album of 2011 or at least what makes listening to Thunderdikk the most fun you can have standing up.

Track by Track Review
Magnum Love

This all-killer, no-filler album kicks off with a blazing riff wrapped tightly around an ode to extra large condoms and breaking beds. The shout along chorus and the first of many solos worthy to be played on your air guitar set the tone perfectly for the further debauchery to come.

I Am The Thunderf***er

Not only does this song have instant earworm factor; its killer riffage is of the kind that all other bands of Thunderdikk’s ilk that came before should be ashamed of themselves for not thinking of first. This is among the most sing-along-able songs on the album, it also features a searing lead guitar section.

The Dikk Abides (If The Ladies Provide)

In yet another rocking example of a welcome earworm, Thunderdikk proves there are still catchy, hook laden riffs to be found upon the fret boards and vocal lines that make you want to sing like you are a part of the band.

Bad Hands
There’s nothing like a greasy western-tinged guitar riff to kick things off. From the school of slower paced sleaze rock, the melody chugs along with a near drunken groove, and a down and dirty guitar line throughout.

Bra Off Party On

Here’s the band’s break out hit. Snake Paladino’s cowbell and drum intro segues into a bacchanalia of guitars and “Heys!” setting the mood for this ode to the body part with more euphemisms than you can shake a pair of them at. In what some would call cross-marketing and others would say was being smart, Thunderdikk released this song on the Rock Band Network for your plastic guitar fingering pleasure. Someday this will only be played live after their audiences demand an encore.

Love Fight

And you thought all the songs were going to be about sex. This one is a page torn from the hair metal playbook of songs about long haired boys and girls not getting along despite being in love, but it’s no whiny lighter ballad. Instead this piece is crunchy and quick paced with a gnarly guitar solo and plenty more opportunities to sing as you listen.

Sister Dolores

For the best example of Sleaze Paladino’s guitar abilities, you need only listen to this track. Now, just ignore the lyrics about Dikk’s school boy adventures with a naughty nun for a minute and let the music sink in. Beyond the killer chord progression put down by Sleaze and rhythm guitarist Johnny Razor, lies a whip-blistering solo which likely left Paladino’s guitar doing Hail Marys in its case after it allowed such sin to be born of its strings.

Nightfire

Bassist Mickey Brunswick gets to pluck off some down and dirty four-string action to intro “Nightfire.” This was among the three tracks which appeared on their original EP, and has benefited greatly from a re-recording for this release.

Route 69

This is an innocent little number about a man and his motorcycle driving down the highway. Yeah, right. With a title leaving little to the imagination of what this song is really about, it delivers on all cylinders, from the opening chords to the closing siren wails.

Hot Zombie F***

Opening on a pulsating bass line, the guitarists tear into their lowest tunings on the album for a pounding riff which drives this musical dedication to girls with daddy issues and spider web tattoos who work part time at the mall. Thunderdikk pounds out one of its best numbers with this one.

Ride My Lightning

Here’s a full tilt rocker, improved upon greatly since its initial iTunes EP release, which carries on the proud tradition of entendre in your face. Funnily enough, the selective self-editing of obvious rhymes makes this one of the cleanest songs on the album!

Ocho (The Eighth Wonder Of The World)

Anyone else extolling the virtues of how great they are at the horizontal mambo would just sound silly, but when Thunderdikk does it, it makes perfect sense. Sleaze Paladino unleashes a face melting solo.

My Name Is Dikk

Truly epitomizing the Thunderdikk experience, consider this their theme song or calling card, if you will. Like every track on Magnum Love, this should be experienced at appropriately obnoxious volume. This particular number is two and a half minutes of full-fledged awesome, with a guitar solo that just might leave you with a burning sensation. - Music Street Journal


Given all the double Ks and penis references involved in Thunderdikk's debut album, you may mistake them for wig-wearing mock-rockers, á la Steel Panther and the like. Well, you would be wrong. The ugly/awesome truth is that not everybody is in the glam-metal game for yucks- some folks actually believe in the enduring power of one-night stands, seven-day weekends, and guitars shaped like the letter 'V'.

Straight off of the gold-gilded streets of LA (naturally) and led by the leather-lunged Dikk Thunder (also naturally), Thunderdikk pay reverent homage to their flash metal forefathers, from Steeler to Skid Row, with all the squealy-guitared excess you'd expect. Plus, every single song is a pornographic wonderland of back-alley sexual antics and free-flowing rock debauchery, from the sleazy come-ons of the fabulously titled "Bra Off Party On" to the hardcore horrors of "Hot Zombie Fuck."

If Caligula had a house band (and electricity and some manner of amplification, I suppose) it'd most certainly be Thunderdikk.

When Fender released Rock Band 3's Squier guitar, there was a lot of talk about how you could use the axe as a video game controller, but what about the opposite? How is the Squier when used strictly as a guitar, with no video game involved?

X-Play's resident rocker J.P. Shub and sleaze metal-extremists Thunderdikk put the guitar to the test with a blistering live version of their party anthem "Bra Off, Party On." If you like it, you can download the track in The Rock Band' Network music store.

When was the last time you had fun listening to a band? Real fun. I don't mean sort of fun. I mean the kind of fun that makes you want to stand up (even if you are driving) and play an unabashed air guitar solo or pump your fist at an air audience while singing into your air microphone like you were part of the band. Magnum Love, the debut album from Thunderdikk delivers that kind of fun in an extra large package.

Before we delve into this disc, a word of caution. Thunderdikk is NSFW, Not Safe For Parents and probably not safe for small mammals. There are some overtly naughty themes in their lyrics. Their song titles have words that you wouldn't say in front of grandma. If you played it in front of your mom she would either wash your ears out with soap or run off and become a groupie for the band. Since it would be wrong to throw *** over the titles, you are getting this review uncensored, just as it ought to be. If you aren't easily offended and don't mind hearing about the horizontal exploits of lead vocalist Dikk Thunder, then crank your speakers up and find out why this should be considered the party album of 2011.

Thunderdikk rocks in the traditional five-man formation, with dual guitars for maximum head banging effectiveness. At first glance and listen you might be tempted to say "oh, they're doing an 80's metal shtick". And you couldn't be more wrong, because Thunderdikk plays with more musical talent than two dozen forgotten Sunset Strip hair bands combined. They back up their declaration of being "the last living rock band" with well placed riffage, blistering guitar solos and sing-a-long choruses all packed in songs that you want to hear over and over again. I'm not exaggerating by saying I spun the album three times in a row during my first listen.

(Ok, last warning; the Dikk jokes are about to start in earnest). Magnum Love comes loaded with songs the band have tempered in the heat of their live performances in the L.A. club scene. “Bra Off Party On” could arguably be called their break out hit. Snake “Skin” Paladino’s cowbell & drum intro segues into a bacchanalia of guitars and “Heys!” which set the mood for this ode to the body part with more euphemisms than you can shake a… oh you get the point. In what some would call cross-marketing and others would call being smart as hell, the band made this song available on the Rock Band Network for your plastic guitar fingering pleasure.

Other tracks like “I Am The Thunderfukker” and “The Dikk Abides” have an instant earworm factor. Once you hear them it is hard to get them out of your head, but in a great, great way. Bassist Mickey Brunswick gets to pluck off some down and dirty 4-string action in “Nightfire,” the previously mentioned “Bra Off Party On” and (don’t forget, I warned you) “Hot Zombie Fuck”.

(Clearing throat) Yes, you read that song title right folks. I know, I know. It’s ok. It really isn’t as gross as you think. In an utterly filthtastic musical dedication to girls with daddy issues and spider web tattoos who work part time at the mall, Thunderdikk pounds out one of its best numbers with this one.

But let’s set all that aside for a minute. Two things that elevate Thunderdikk well above other bands who play in a similar mode, are its vocalist and lead guitarist. Dikk Thunder is a true front man who knows how to command a stage. By the end of a live performance he and the band can have the entire audience, even people seeing them for the first time, rocking out and having a damn good time.

The second thing is lead guitarist Sleaze Paladino, who has guitar chops that most wannabe axe slingers could only dream of having. He plays with the passion and authority of someone raised in the golden age of metal, but who instead of just emulating his heroes, carved out his own niche in the six-string spectrum. Throughout the album, Paladino proves with his playing that there are still unexplored riffs and solos to be screamed from fret boards; something many of his forebears seem to have either forgotten or eschew for lack of their own creativity.

For a perfect example of his abilities, you need only listen to "Sister Dolores". Now, just ignore the lyrics about Dikk’s school boy adventures with a naughty nun for a minute and let the music sink in. Beyond the killer chord progression put down by Sleaze and rhythm guitarist Johnny Razor, lies a whip-blistering solo which likely left Paladino’s guitar doing Hail Marys in its case after it allowed such sin to be born of its strings.

Thunderdikk is also deserving of kudos for not only putting together an all-killer, no-filler rock album, but for actually making it an album, complete with multi-page liner notes packed with photos, all the song lyrics and thank you's to people you've never heard of but who are very deserving.

And while you, a mere mortal, could never truly fill the bulge in Dikk Thunder's denims, by listening to Magnum Love at appropriately obnoxious volume, you can at least pretend you are for a while, and have the most fun you've had while standing up.

Thunderdikk's Magnum Love is out now and available from iTunes, Amazon MP3 and CDBaby. - @LinerNotes


Band names have gotten so convoluted, it's hard to recall the straightforward glory days when Gary Lewis and the Playboys were just Jerry Lee Lewis's son and some single dudes, and Buffalo Tom was just an upstate bison named Tom who loved music. Paying homage to the days when bands were what they said they were: Thunderdikk.

Playing a CD release show at the Viper Room (of course!) this Friday, Thunderdikk's exactly what you'd expect from their name: a gritty, dirty, leather and jean-jacket clad, hard-to-tell-if-they're-serious metal band fronted by teased-blonde-wigged, presumably sexually advanced singer Dikk Thunder, who hits on anything that moves, until they inevitably bolt. Consistently ridiculous songs are exclusively about Thunder's prowess, w/ highlights including:

Sister Dolores: Dikk's obviously true power-ballad about losing his virginity to an actual nun, which if you're not careful, could really turn into a full-blown habit.

Bra Off, Party On: After repeating the hook upwards of seventeen times, TD transition to "First your top, then your thong" and then something about having "three shots of Thunder for you", though what kind of pansy drinks Thunderbird out of a shot glass?

The Dikk Abides (If The Ladies Provide): This hard rocker lets you know that "Dikk does as Dikk pleases" but he "doesn't abide by Dikk teasers", which is kind of harsh considering Vitale is only trying to get you to watch BYU - San Diego State. Jimmer Fredette, baby!

Thunderdikk's website also features a compendium of Chuck Norris-esque "ThunderFacts" about the band, including "Thunderdikk''s Rose does not have a thorn" and "Thunderdikk -- proving Nirvana didn't ruin everything," which must be true, because really, how much can you destroy with plush throw pillows and a sitar, anyway?

Mention Thrillist for a monster discount at the door and half-off CDs the night of the show; check out the whole album and more about Dikk at Thunderdikk.com

Harmonix flung open the virtual doors of the Rock Band Network's beta to the public today, giving legions of musicians the chance to create their own tracks for Rock Band and Rock Band 2. Right now, there's no firm date for when Network-created tunes will be available to consumers, but expect an announcement in "the near future."

How well does the thing actually work? I tracked down Sleaze “Bag” Paladino, guitar shredder for L.A.'s "Last real ROCK band" Thunderdikk, to get the word on how the Rock Band Network works in real life. Between groupie-laden “rehearsals” and rocking L.A.’s clubs scene, Sleaze is working on bringing Thunderdikk to Rock Band. "As a gamer and a musician, I’m insanely excited about what Harmonix is doing here," Sleaze said.

By all accounts, publishing your garage band's masterpiece to Rock Band will involve a certain amount of dedication. "It's not for everyone," Sleaze told me, "If you’ve never worked with a professional audio program before, you won’t know what's going on... but it's doable. Just be prepared for a sh*t-ton of work."

According to Harmonix, the average work time will hover around 40 hours per song, although your mileage may vary. "They say it’s takes 40 hours if you know what you’re doing," Sleaze said, "I say it will probably take us more than 70 hours for our first track--- but our song is five minutes long, not three, and there’s a gnarly, face-melting guitar solo that will take forever to transcribe."

Each individual track must be run through a couple of different music programs on PC (Reaper, for creating the tracks and Magma for encoding them), and then the actual game charts have to be created, which is a hugely time-consuming process.

"The part that's going to trip up a lot of indie bands is the vocals," Sleaze said, "You have to program the note stream of the vocals through midi, and lots of indie bands/singers will have problems with this step. How many of them know how to play their vocals, exactly, on a keyboard?"

The Rock Band Network offers a ton of different customization options to make sure your on-screen avatars rock out correctly, including control of the handedness of musicians, the ability to customize character animations--so your drummer won't look like a robot for instance-- you can control pyrotechnics, crowd cheers, overdrive sections and more.

As for who is working on tracks to be released when the Network ships, I can't tell you, but if you're into non-mainstream music, I'll bet you've heard of some of these bands... which is the point. Rock Band Network is the perfect place for fans of more obscure music to meet the makers of obscure music.

"A typical indie rock band -- and even the mighty Thunderdikk -- would never have a chance in hell of getting a song in Rock Band, and here we are, programming a song," Sleaze said. "It fits totally into the DIY ethic. The days of needing thousands of dollars to get a professional recording are long gone, and this is an extension of that."

I'll keep you updated when I hear anything about this, but I gotta ask: Which obscure/semi-obscure band would you like to see take advantage of The Rock Band Network?

Here at RealTVAddict, we focus a lot on TV. Sometimes, we dabble in movies. And though we don’t focus on music regularly, sometimes there are bands that are just totally influenced and a part of those cultures. Thunderdikk is one of those bands. This LA based band is a totally self aware act that manages to rock hard as well as market themselves as a unique brand in today’s multimedia world. This might be the first time you hear from Thunderdikk, but it won’t be the last.

We did an interview with the elusive lead singer of the group, Dikk Thunder.

Tell me about Thunderdikk. How did you guys get together and what are you all about?

Thunderdikk songs chronicle the wild times of my life and provide the soundtrack for a never-ending head banging party. We play so people can let loose, dance and get crazy. When I called the other guys and told them the band was called Thunderdikk and the songs were about girls, partying and rock and roll, they jumped on it.

What, so far, has been your biggest break?

We’ve gotten our music on several TV shows, played some key shows and been on the radio but in my mind our greatest achievement was a glowing review in Classic Rock magazine. They said Thunderdikk was “clearly the greatest rock band to emerge from LA since Van Halen”. Think about that for a minute.

How did it work out that you got a song on The Bad Girls Club?

Well, the girls needed a wild night out and someone told them to come to a Thunderdikk show. So they filmed an episode where the girls came to our gig at the Viper Room and danced, drank and got down with the band. We had a lot of fun with those crazy girls. Best moment – our guitarist Sleaze making out with one of the girls in their booth while soloing one-handed. Never missed a note.

Also, fans can play your song on Rock Band. How exactly did you guys pull that off?

Rock Band Network now allows users to download their software and program your own songs to be playable on Rock Band. It’s not easy and it goes through a lot of scrutiny before it is available to the public, but it is worth it when I think of our song ”Bra Off, Party On” disseminating throughout the world. It’s just one more way for us to bring the party to the people.

How would you describe your sound?

Like the best night ever that ain’t gonna end till you get laid. Informed by AC/DC, Motley Crue and other great rock bands who knew what it meant to write a song that could stop a train and start a riot. And by riot I mean orgy.

What is next for you guys? More multimedia, more live shows, new album etc?

We are currently finishing up our first full-length release, Magnum Love. I wanted to write a record that would make you feel like a bad-ass while you are blasting it in your car, flying down the freeway singing along. It should be out by late summer and we will be touring to support it. We will have the new CD, new shirts, and new songs. In the meantime you can find a taste of our sound on iTunes. The Bra Off, Party On EP is a great introduction.

Where can people find out more about you guys?

www.thunderdikk.com has all the details but for a real education catch one of our live shows. That’s where the action is. Plus, our music is being used in a new World Cup reality show called Bud House. Check that out too.

Metal/Prog Metal CD Reviews

Thunderdikk

Rock Out With Your Dikk Out EP

Review by Rick Damigella

It is as obvious as a Marshall stack set on stun that we are currently in a metal renaissance in 2K9. Seemingly everyone from Whitesnake to Anvil is back together, touring and recording. Kids who weren’t even born when Master of Puppets was released are rocking out as a new generation of fans. And somewhere out there, in the vast miasma of wannabe bands cluttering the Internet, are a new breed of rocker, carrying the metal torch, playing it loud and proud, the sound of old school metal in the new century. If you like big hair, bigger solos and singers who don’t sound like Cookie Monster swallowed a bucket of whiskey soaked shrapnel, then allow me to introduce you to Thunderdikk.

Who is Thunderdikk you say? First of all, there are five of them, which as you all know it is written in the 10 commandments of metal that thy band shall consist of five. The lead singer’s name is Dikk Thunder (no, really, it is). Lead face melting is handled by Sleaze Paladino, one of those rare guitarists in the world who isn’t afraid to solo and has the fingers and the skills to back it up. Rhythm guitar is played by Johnny Razor, with Mickey Brunswick on bass and Snake “Skin” Paladino on drums and douchebaggery. Appropriately, the band refers to their fans as Dikkheads.

Thunderdikk’s first recording is a three track EP available via iTunes which is well worth the three bucks to download. The band plays a classic-cum-modern style of sleazy metal that is pure rocking fun to listen to. Indeed, these guys could very easily revive the down and dirty Sunset Strip metal scene given half the chance.
Track by Track Review
Nightfire
A throbbing bass guitar riff oozes from the speakers as the intro to my favorite song of the three. A mid-paced twin guitar crunch riff kicks in and quickly picks up the pace in the chorus. Dikk Thunder belts out his vocals with a purpose and that purpose is to rock you, with lyrics like this couplet: “Come a little closer, I won’t bite / Well of course I will, cause that’s what you like.” Sleaze Paladino’s solo proves he is in fact a time traveler who is here from the metal past to remind the listener what guitar solos are supposed to sound like!
My Name is Dikk
Lock up your daughters, sisters, even your moms, because Dikk wants them to come feel his thunder. This one is two and a half minutes of full fledged awesome, with a killer tribal drum break and a guitar solo guaranteed to leave you with a burning sensation.
Ride My Lightning
Pulling no punches in its singer-on-the-prowl lyrics, this full tilt rocker carries on the proud tradition of entendre in your face. This song truly epitomizes the Thunderdikk experience: a band who rocks, has a sense of fun about them and knows what heavy metal is supposed to be. Check them out on Twitter by following @Thunderdikk and you will get an even better sense of why, if you call yourself a metalhead, you need to be rocking out with your Dikk out. - Music Street Journal


Surely this one has to be worth a listen for the band’s name alone? Sleazegrinder talks you through the merits of the fantastically monikered, Thunderdikk! Click here for previous Tracks Of The Day.

So, sometimes bands send me t-shirts. It’s one of the perks of the job. T-shirts and backstage passes. It almost makes up for the crippling poverty. Anyway, I’ve received three of them so far this year. One’s from Zodiac Killer Records. It’s got a picture of the Zodiac Killer on the front. He killed a bunch of people in the early 70’s. The second is from Steroid Freak Pussy, a Zodiac Mindwarp-esque sleaze metal band from Leeds. The third, as you may have guessed, says Thunderdikk on it. Where am I supposed to wear these things? Weddings? Funerals? Jury duty?

So yeah, Thunderdikk. They’re from Hollywood, and they play crotch-stuffing headband metal. If you’re thinking Steel Panther or Bang Camaro – or Spinal Tap, or even Motley Crue – you’re right about all of it. Quite simply, they are Boner Gods from Planet 1987.

It is fruitless to explain their backstory, because it’s jam-packed with mythology. The only true statement I can confirm is that at least two of ‘em were in Devo for awhile. Devo! Otherwise, it’s all sex-with-chicks-in-coffins and briefcases of coke and 3AM flights to Greenland. The usual, really. For example, let’s ask frontman Dikk Thunder what a typical Thunderdikk fan is like.

“Awhile back I got a letter from an inmate at a women’s penitentiary,” he tells me.

“She had seen us play a few times before she got thrown in, and she wanted to know if there was anyway we could play a show in the pen for the ladies there. She promised it would be a night to remember. I did recall her from the picture she sent, because she had a Siberian tiger tattooed across her back with the claws digging into both butt cheeks. The last time I had seen that tattoo I had her bent over behind a dumpster on Sunset. Well, apparently she was not the woman of high standards that I initially had taken her for because she ended up getting thrown in the clink for assaulting a police officer with a broken beer bottle.”

Mr. Thunder pauses dramatically. There’s a clinking sound in the background. Ice cubes, most likely. Perhaps handcuffs.
“I do like my women wild. Perhaps we will play that show in the pen after all.”

Thunderdikk is in the studio as we speak, crafting their first album (tentative title: Rock Out With Your Dikk Out), and they have graciously offered up one of the tracks, Nightfire, to CR readers.
“Nightfire is about undeniable sexuality and power,” says Thunder.

“The feeling that every woman in the room wants to fuck you when you walk through a crowd. Those nights when the air around you is electric with sexual tension because you are unstoppable. Raw, unchecked desire, so explosive that it could combust at any moment and the air itself could catch fire.”

What more could possibly be said? Here’s Nightfire, courtesy the band.

Enjoy, and if you like what you hear, head over to their Myspace page: www.myspace.com/thunderdikk

If you’re lucky, and you’ve got something good to offer ‘em, you might even be able to score one of their tasteful t-shirts.

I dunno, I feel like a "Behold!" is in order; something like "Behold the ass-cracking Gods of Boner Metal!" Thunderdikk are clearly the greatest rock band to emerge from LA since Van Halen, and their supersonic cock'n'roll is equal parts Buckcherry and Ron Jeremy. It's like a hot-tub party for your ears.

Bio

Classic Rock Magazine (May 2009) declares: "THUNDERDIKK are clearly the greatest rock band to emerge from LA since Van Halen, and their supersonic cock'n'roll is equal parts Buckcherry and Ron Jeremy. It's like a hot-tub party for your ears."

Rock n roll used to be tough. It was about booze and women and having an appetite for destruction. In these self-aware times, one band will rise above and return rock music to its partying past. That band is THUNDERDIKK. Their full length debut, “MAGNUM LOVE,” features 13-tracks of sonic debauchery, guaranteed to provide nothing less than hot aural pleasure for even the most discriminating ears.

Formed in 2007, THUNDERDIKK is hell-bent on delivering authentic Hollywood Sleaze Rock to the fun-starved masses. Lead by vocalist Dikk Thunder, THUNDERDIKK is heavy on sing-alongs, solos, and superhuman feats of rock ‘n roll strength.

THUNDERDIKK has taken their rock assault to any form of media that can handle it. They’ve been seen performing on television’s "The Bad Girls Club," the Oxygen Network's highest-rated program, and their music has been licensed to ABC's "Extreme Makeover Home Edition," USA's "Burn Notice," G4's "X-Play," and internet-based reality show "Bud House." And proving that they are unafraid to embrace new technology, their single "Bra Off, Party On" can be found on Harmonix’s Rock Band Network, where it continues to be downloaded by plastic instrument wielding gamers across the globe.

Thrillist.com gets it- "Thunderdikk's exactly what you'd expect from their name: a gritty, dirty, leather and jean-jacket clad, hard-to-tell-if-they're-serious metal band fronted by teased-blonde-wigged, presumably sexually advanced singer Dikk Thunder, who hits on anything that moves, until they inevitably bolt. Consistently ridiculous songs are exclusively about Thunder's prowess."

With rock n roll in need of a new champion, why would you look anywhere else?
