There are at least five artists with the name Tripod:

1. An Australian comedy band (active from 1997 to present)
2. A Norwegian grunge/stoner rock band (active from 2002 to present)
3. A Serbian easy listening / pop band (active from 2007 to 2009)
4. A US prog rock band (active from 1998 to 2007)
5. A French metal / hardcore band (active from 2001 to 2005)

1. Tripod is an Australian musical comedy trio formed in 1997, specialising in improv, parody and satire. The band comprises Scod (Scott Edgar), Yon (Simon Hall) and Gatesy (Steven Gates). The trio cover a wide variety of performance styles, from soft ballads to hard rock, performing these songs with only the aid of Scod (and, at times, Gatesy) playing acoustic guitar.

Prolific recording artists, Tripod have released ten full-length albums and four DVDs. In 2005, Tripod received the Best Comedy Release ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Award for their album Middleborough Rd.

Their most recent album is Men of Substance, released in February 2013.

They’re well known for their ‘Song In An Hour’ challenges on Australian radio station Triple J. Once a week they appeared on the morning show with Wil Anderson and Adam Spencer and were given a list of ‘ingredients’ from the listeners. They would then have only an hour to write a song containing all those ingredients.

Fun Fact: Tripod were immortalised by being name-checked in the Star Wars novel Force Heretic II.

    Yep, they need to be separated. I wonder how that's even possible. Maybe through genre tags?

    Tripod is a musical band of Australian comedians ! :D But I do agree that there really needs to be a way to separate bands with the same name o.O

    I LOVE their cover of Paranoid Android, I saw them do it live in Edinburgh at the Fringe last year and it was incredible.

    Their best song is their cover of Paranoid Android. Nearly brings me to tears when I hear the "Rain Down" movement. Gatesy is an amazing singer.
