Clouddead (almost always stylized cLOUDDEAD) is an experimental/{{hip hop}} group consisting of rappers Doseone (Adam Drucker) and Why (now known by his real name, Yoni Wolf) and DJ Odd Nosdam (David Madson), although all three take turns on production and mic duty. To put it in very simple terms, cLOUDDEAD are a bunch of weirdos, making music for weirdos. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, influences as far-flung as 60's psychadelia, indie rock, and ambient electronica can be heard in their music, making the whole ordeal sound like a trippy mish-mash of styles. Upon the release of their debut album -''cLOUDDEAD''- (which was itself a compilation album of six separate two-track [=EPs=]) was alternately hailed as a work of genius and "smartass surrealism"; the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. The group released one more album -''Ten''- and a split EP with BoardsOfCanada before disbanding, though the members reunited for the Themselves song "[=Rapping4Money=]" in 2009.

* NightmareFuel - The group pretty much has this in every song, some even seem specially designed to make any listening LSD users have a bad trip. For example ''Dead Dogs Two''.



* StealthParody - [[WildMassGuessing Some have theorized]] that the entire project is a parody of pretentious "art music" in general. If it is, it's working ''spectacularly'' thusfar.

* TooGoodToLast - ''Two albums?'' '''''WHAT?'''''
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible - As an extension of the MindScrew mentioned above.
