December 28, 2018 — Tonight Mac Sabbath was playing at The Fonda along with The Dickies, PPL MVR, and Captured by Robots. If you are unfamiliar with Mac Sabbath, they are a parody metal tribute band that formed in Los Angeles in 2014.

They are a parody of Black Sabbath, but with a unique twist with lyrics and imagery centered on McDonalds fast food. When I had the opportunity to review and shoot this show, I couldn’t resist. I recently saw where Ozzy Osborne had the opportunity to meet the fast-food themed Black Sabbath parody band. You can see this recent meet up HERE.

The band finally took the stage around 11:15. On guitar they had Slayer MacCheeze, Grimalice on bass, the Catburgler on drums, and Ronald Osbourne on vocals. While their set was not too long, it certainly was not lacking in musical talent or even in acting. The singer Ronald sounds and acts just like Ozzy, but instead looks like Ronald McDonald. They band played fan favorites like “Frying Pan” (Iron Man), “Sweet Beef” (Sweet Leaf), and they even had Stan Lee of The Dickies join them on stage for their version of “Pair-a-Buns” (Paranoid).

Definitely a night to remember! See photos of the red headed Ronald and crew below.
