The Wacky Ding Dongs are characters played by The Birthday Boys. They were a non existent comedy rock band formed in 1995 that appeared in a shared dream/nightmare between Scott Aukerman and Marc Maron. They write and perform original comedy songs and several parodies such as "Lazy Train", which took 5-10 months to write, and a parody of Micheal Jackson's Beat It, the only change being the words "seat it" in place of "beat it".
In the five years they were together, they gathered a following who called themselves "Dongheads", some of whom thought the band was oblivious and saw their music as "so bad, it's good". One such fan claims he had followed them prior to the bands' formation and pushed the creation of the band because they where idiots.
In episode 54: The Wacky Ding Dongs the band ambushed the studio during an interview and held everyone hostage, demanding that the band's demos finally be played on the air. After hearing the demos, producer Stu Gordon of Silly Billy Records offered a record deal on the condition that they remain on the air until he got there, seeing as he got lost.
After some discussion and a few calls from fans, the undercover police arrive and an altercation ensues which ends with the police using tear gas. Scott and Marc slowly wake up to The Birthday Boys trying to awaken them and realize the whole episode was just a long nightmare.
