Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the violence depicted in this late-night cartoon (it's part of the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up) is explicit. Characters are shown bleeding from their eyes, having their skin burned off by scalding-hot coffee, and getting mangled in the blades of a helicopter, among other catastrophes. The show also manages to reinforce just about every negative stereotype imaginable about long-haired, leather-clad heavy metal bands. These guys play and party hard, spend their spare time with busty women, and drink alcohol like it's water, prompting one of them to declare, "I'd rather chop off my ding-dong than not drink." Indeed.

Sexual Content

A music video depicts a band member having sex with a voluptuous woman. Although nipples and private parts aren't shown, just about everything else is.


For starters, one of the band members is named Murderface. Other gruesome animated imagery involves people's faces being literally blown off, exposing flesh, blood, and bone. In a music video, a band member's skull is split with an ax, while another gets shot with a flaming arrow.


Adolescent potty talk like "douche bag," "dildo," "dick," and "prick" abounds, but "f--k" is always bleeped out. One band member calls an elderly woman a "GMILF," which he explains is short for "Grandmother I'd Like to F--k."

Social Behavior

Dethklok isn't a band you'd want your children idolizing. Case in point: After their personal chef is caught in the blades of their private helicopter and cut into a million pieces, they put him on life support and have him stitched back together so they can write a song called "Sewn Back Together Wrong."


No specific products are hawked, but the band does agree to record a jingle for a fictitious coffee company.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Like many rock stars of their caliber, members of Dethklok drink excessively. When they go to the grocery store, they stock up on hard liquor instead of food.
