Get Thee Hence

Get Thee Hence on American Super Talent Havers

"Get Thee Hence" (or GTH) is a nu metal band signed by Murderface & Toki (as the first signed band of MurderTooth Records). They are a band who despite beginning relatively unknown, are even more irresponsible and full of themselves than the members of Dethklok. They are introduced in Dethsiduals as the main antagonists.


GTH are first seen playing their music for American Super Talent Havers. Toki and Murderface, who are celebrity judges on the show, are impressed and in turn recruit them for their new label MurderTooth Records. Although Toki and Murderface like their performance, all the band members of that band turn out to be too lazy, arrogant, and selfish, moreso than Murderface himself. Throughout the course of the episode, they are abusive to Murderface and treat him like a servant (demanding things like an exorbitant advance, a place to stay, to be furnished with drugs and alcohol), but for unknown reasons they seem to get along with Toki.

Murderface quickly discovers they are extremely hard to work with and proved to be more trouble than they are worth keeping. After an all-night party the members of Get Thee Hence are rendered too intoxicated with heroin to do anything so he and Toki are forced to make Get Thee Hence's debut album on their own. Tired of the abuse he suffered at their hands, Murderface desperately and genuinely begs to let him and Toki be let back into Dethklok after their rowdy behavior had gotten them both kicked out. They even convince Dethklok to let the band open for a Dethklok concert (something which is rarely done according to a television news reporter). Despite all of Murderface & Toki's hard work, Get Thee Hence gets all residiuals as Toki filled out the paperwork in Norwegian. However, in typical Curse of Dethklok-fashion, Get Thee Hence is brutally attacked (and likely murdered) on-stage by angry Dethklok fans as the members of Dethklok watch, horrified by the brutality of the event.

Despite the on-stag mauling, Get Thee Hence make a brief appearance in Writersklok during Abigail's introduction, implying that the band survived the attack, but have since broken up.


  • Nathan despises Get Thee Hence due to them being a combination of rap and nu metal, a style of music he views as outdated.
  • Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, and Troy Sanders of Mastodon and Ace Frehley voiced characters in this episode.
  • Their only track played during Dethsiduals is a parody of Papa Roach's hit single, "Last Resort".
  • Being a parody of nu-metal bands, Get Thee Hence's designs were based variously on real life nu metal musicians:
    • The lead singer is directly based on the late Shifty Shellshock of Crazy Town. His tattoos are inspired by that of Daron Malakian of System Of A Down, while his "STD" tattoo mirrors an "HIV" tattoo owned by Jonathan Davis of Korn.
    • The bassist is a parody of nu-metal bassists, who frequently don shaved heads and goatees (Steve Benton of Drowning Pool, Ryan Martinie of Mudvayne, Robert Garcia of Spineshank, Shavo Odadjian of System Of A Down, etc). Design-wise, however, he appears to be a direct caricature of Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, though he also bears a resemblance to Odadjian. He plays an Ibanez bass, similar to Korn bassist Fieldy.
    • The DJ wears a tracksuit, similar to the members of Korn or Slipknot. His dreadlocks resemble those worn by Korn's members.
    • The guitarist appears to be a mix of Korn members Davis and Fieldy. He bears a facial resemblance to Davis, but his dreadlocks resemble Fieldy's.
    • The drummer sports a mohawk similar to one previously worn by Slipknot singer Corey Taylor. He also wears a white wifebeater, which Shifty often wore as part of his signature look.
