Sadgasm was a grunge band formed by Homer Simpson during the 1990s.

Years active: 1990s (Split)

Biography

The band was originally formed in the 1990s as an inoffensive, urban light, hip hop, smooth grooves outfit. After Homer sees Marge and one of her professors from her university together, Homer changes the band's direction into a wholly different type of music: Guitar Rock Utilizing Nihilist Grunge Energy or "grunge". The band is then named Sadgasm.

Their first public performance was at Springfield University. Some of the band's best songs include Margerine, Shave Me (later made into Brain Freeze, a parody song by Weird Al Yankovic) and Politically Incorrect.

The group broke up sometime after the release of their album Desolation Hatchback because, according to Kurt Loder, Homer holed himself up at his mansion when rumours swirled about an out of control narcotics addiction, which turned out to be insulin because he became diabetic from drinking too many frappuccinos.
