Acid Bath was an influential SludgeMetal band from Louisiana, formed in 1991. Their unique musical style combined sludge with elements of BlackMetal, DeathMetal, southern rock and blues-rock. While they are pretty much unknown in the mainstream, they have a significant underground fanbase and are considered a cult band by many.

In 1997, bassist Audie Pitre was killed in a road accident by a drunk driver. The band broke up soon afterwards, having released just two studio albums during their short lifespan. Despite the short career, they are considered one of the major bands of the subgenre, alongside more long-lived bands like Eyehategod and Music/{{Crowbar}}.

!!Tropes that apply to this band:

* BilingualBonus: "Diäb Soulé" and "Toubabo Koomi" are Cajun French (a dialect spoken in very specific parts of Louisiana) for "Drunken Devil" and "Land of White Cannibals", respectively.
* BreakupBreakout: Dax Riggs and Sammy Duet both still work in music as of 2014. Dax went on to front Agents of Oblivion and Deadboy and the Elephantmen before releasing albums and touring under his own name, and Sammy went on to play guitar for Music/{{Crowbar}} and Goatwhore. Out of the two, Sammy is definitely the more successful, as Goatwhore has become a solid upper-mid-level support and general touring machine.
* ContemptibleCover - The artwork they used for their albums was done by several infamous serial killers such as John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez, and Kenneth Bianchi. Also, the cover for ''Paegan Terrorism Tactics'' features a rather macabre painting by euthanasia activist, Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

* OdeToIntoxication: A whole lot of their songs qualify; "Paegan Love Song", in particular, was about an incident on a beach in Florida where someone offered them datura, which they took. The resulting trip apparently lasted for an incredible duration and left them in a haze after it was finally over.

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: The highly varied and disparate nature of the individual musical influences of the members manifested itself in the music which, among other things, had elements of death metal, blues, folk, hardcore, crust punk, grindcore, black metal, country, Southern rock, post-hardcore, stoner metal, and even some No Wave and early industrial.
* OdeToIntoxication: "Paegan Love Song", which was written about an incident where they were offered datura on a beach in Florida, partook of it, tripped balls, and woke up on the beach in a haze after the trip had concluded.
