Pre-Weird Al funny music band from Detroit that started as a joke and blossomed into one of Detroit's music legends from the '70s. Originally took local bands' lyrics and changed them to funny lyrics but began writing creative and hysterical songs of their own in short time like "Sliders & Fries", "Ivan The Putski", "Summer Camp In Moscow", "Scream Bitch!", to name but a few. Formed by two of Detroit's eastside delinquents, The Despicable Mikey Moe Hawk and The Insatiable Tommy Hawk, they lasted together as a musical and movie project until 2007 when the retired the "Mohawk Bros." officially, but still remain best friends to this date. Look their name up on Google or whatever search engine becomes more popular eventually, and you'll get a taste of some sick individuals with guitars in their hands. Kind of like a Detroit punk version of Alice Cooper & Frank Zappa, but very original too. These guys wore SKI MASKS onstage to protect their real identities and are rumored to have committed crimes after their shows in their stage costumes.
That Reruns band and the Polish Muslims completely ripped off The Incredible Mohawk Bros. who did it all a lot sooner than they did.
