Band: Arnocorps

Home Page:

The band combines a militaristic appearance with a musical style rooted in skate punk and heavy metal. Describing their music as Action Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll, the focus of the band is on energetic live performances which feature interaction with the audience. Attendees and fans are referred to by the band as "Goddamn Heroes."
ArnoCorps' lyrics refer almost exclusively to the films of Arnold Schwarzenegger, with particular emphasis on his action roles from the 1980s such as The Terminator, Predator and Total Recall, with many of the lyrics paralleling movie dialogue and plots, similar to The Misfits' lyrical focus on horror films and B-movies.
The band's stage show sees all five members dressed in combat fatigues and camouflage paint (most likely inspired by Predator and Commando) and address the audience in false Austrian accents. Each band member uses a pseudonym and they also claim to have six deceased former members.
As a further part of their act, ArnoCorps claim to be inspired by ancient folklore and mythology originating from the alps of their "native" Austria. ArnoCorps went further to charge several Hollywood movie studios with "stealing" the lore and mythology of Austria for plot material and dialogue in the films they have parodied. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the band attempted to launch a class-action lawsuit against the studios on behalf of the Austrian people in 2004, which failed to make it to court.
