** On their eponymous first album, Eddie the Head has a comical "Huh? Wha?" expression on his face, like his mom caught him masturbating or he just woke up from a screaming coke bender and found himself in a group therapy circle. His fuck-you sneer debuted on the second album, ''Killers'', and hasn't gone away since.

The band takes its name from a fabled medieval torture device, allegedly used to dish out {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}s to witches and the similar, as an alternative to [[BurnTheWitch burning at the stake]]. If you're ''really'' interested in how it worked, all we're going to say is that it involves a human-sized canister with a hinged lid, and SpikesOfDoom on the inside of the lid. [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice You know where this is going]].
