  • Destroy All Monsters war eine US-amerikanische Band. Sie bezeichneten sich als Anti-Rockband, die mit einer „Menagerie aus Wörtern, Bildern und Tönen“ gegen den vorherrschenden „Zirkus aus Rockstar-Bullshit und musikalischer Leere“ antraten. Als Vorbilder nannten sie Man Ray, The Velvet Underground and Nico, The Hairy Who, Silver Apples, Captain Beefheart, Stanley Mouse, Sun Ra, Comics, Stooges, Beardsley und MC5. Ihre Show war geprägt von „einem Gefühl von Schwermut, Desaster und Apokalypse gemischt mit Anflügen von Anarchie, Comedy und Absurdität“. (de)
