Screaming Mechanical Brain (formerly known as Screaming Monkey Boner, abbreviated as SMB) is a four-piece metal/synthpunk band based out of the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. Their signature style combines elements of the heavy-metal, electropunk and at times even “circus music.”

SMB fuses every kind of music from throughout history using both digital and standard instruments into a seamless blend of mind blowing rock. There are no walls, there are no boundaries. This band has proven that you can think outside of the box, and still get in people’s heads.

Since the band released The Process of Assimilation in 2004, SMB has played hundreds of shows across the USA and sold thousands of records to fans all around the world. In 2005 SMB released The Museum of Barnyard Oddities, a collection of b-sides, covers and remixes that has attained legendary status. In 2006 There Is No God In Space dropped- the band’s most daring album to date-and all hell has broken loose.

    "I cannot even fathom why a band with a name as awesome as Screaming Monkey Boner would change names" At least they didn't grow huge vaginas and a taste for penis like Rainbow Butt Monkeys (now Finger Eleven.)

    I don't like the new one. Too much metalcore, too little fun.

    So I've just started listening to them and I really love them, except for the Fun With Poop album, that was pretty much shit.
