About Mr. Bungle

Mr. Bungle's sound and approach are a unique mix of the experimental, the abstract, and the absurd. Commencing in 1985 as a neck-snapping death metal outfit, the Northern Californians underwent a full sonic lobotomy in the 1990s, operating under the influence of ska, heavy metal, disco, thrash, funk, and avant-garde jazz, often in the same song. After vocalist and founding member Mike Patton achieved unlikely mainstream success with Faith No More, Mr. Bungle issued a trio of acclaimed and idiosyncratic albums throughout the '90s: Mr. Bungle (1991), Disco Volante (1995), and California (1999). Mr. Bungle ceased operations in 1999 but reconvened decades later for a series of shows and released a re-recording of their 1986 demo, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny, in 2020.
