Comedy metal troupe the Dave Brockie Experience consists of vocalist/bassist Dave Brockie (also a member of GWAR), guitarist Mike Derks, and drummer Brad Roberts, who endeavor to splice the disparate strains of hard rock and metal with comedy. After debuting with 2001's self-explanatory Diarrhea of a Madman, the group returned two years later with the equally humorous Songs for the Wrong.
The Dave Brockie Experience or DBX is formed of three of the current members of Heavy metal band Gwar. The band is composed of David "Oderus Urungus" Brockie (vocals/bass), Brad "Jizmak Da Gusha" Roberts (drums), and Mike "Balsac the Jaws of Death" Derks (Guitar). DBX is a pet project of Gwar and shows some of their earlier punk roots from the "Death Piggy" era. At their shows they play some original DBX songs as well as some tunes from Death Piggy, Gwar, and X-Cops. The band enjoys a following mostly made up of Gwar fans. Dave Brockie has hinted at the possibility of the band's breakup in the past due to the exhausting nature of lower-budget touring. In February 2008, several sources reported that the band would be touring as an opening act for the reunited Green Jellÿ. Dave Brockie has since stated, on his website, that this is not the case and there have been no official discussions concerning the tour.
DBX played two reunion shows in August 2009. In a recent interview with Dave Brockie he explained a new DBX album is "possible" but his main priority now is Gwar.
