The best and most original band in the world. This band does not fall under any category of music. They are their own stuff. The music they make is so fucking crazy it makes you want to jiz your pants. After the break up of the band At the Drive-in, mars volta was born. And what a wonderful thing that was.
-Hey bud, whats that stain on your pants?
-Oh shit, I must of been listening to Mars Volta.

The absolute most kick-ass band ever to be around. Their own style of original music. Real music that is shunned by MTV pissers.
What the fuck is that shitty music? Fuck you, that's Mars Volta, greatest band ever.

1. My favorite band.
2. See 'original,' 'visionary,' or 'undefinable.'
I am going to see The Mars Volta on April 17 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Even though they will probably be booed by all the moronic yuppie MTV clones in attendance, I am sure that their show will be mindblowing...

Most amazingly diverse band on earth, full of great fcuking music, actually creating their own genre of music. Look up " At the drive in" for more info
Beware- Mars volta can cause sudden urges to hump or kiss the computer speakers.

Best generic definition is nu-prog, which doesn't do them justice at all. Completely original and imaginative and unlike any of the crap pumped into the mainstream through MTV. Their two albums are about the death of the friend. Deloused in the Comatorium features the mystical journey of protagonist Cerpin Text. Their second album is in essence one track divided into suites, again about the death of their friend. Their lyrics are obscure and non-sensical yet deeply moving. Cedric Bixlar and Omar Rodriguez were previosuly members of At the Drive In. Other members are Flea and John Frusciante of Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
"Oh crap, i just came"
