  • Notes

    • The initial character design for Dethklok band member, Pickles, the drummer, appeared to be modeled after Devin Townsend, frontman for the extreme metal acts, Strapping Young Lad and the Devin Townsend Band. In fact, the original similarity was so strong that it was addressed at the message forum for Townsend's record label, HevyDevy Records. Devin's own wife Tracy responded and seemed very upset that a character so similar in appearance to her husband would be depicted as a "violent idiot". Strapping Young Lad's management took action and negotiated to have the character design changed so the similarity was not as blatant.
