Mystery Skulls is an American indie electronic rock band formed in 2011 by Luis Dubuc. Dubuc first publically announced the existence of the project through Tumblr in August of 2011, just before announcing the end of his former band, The Secret Handshake in September the same year. In 2013, the band signed on with Warner (Bros.) Records.

For a time, their only commercial releases Mystery Skulls had was their self-titled EP and singles for Ghost and Paralyzed, but they still gained a massive amount of popularity through sites such as YouTube and Bandcamp. Their first full album, Forever, was released in 2014, which gained them even more popularity. The project has released their sophomore album, One of Us, on August 4, 2017. In April 19, 2019; their third album, Back to Life, was released.


Note: There are two official music videos for "Ghost" (one live-action and a Flash-animated one by MysteryBen). The tropes pertaining the former are listed on this page; the tropes from the latter can be found at Mystery Skulls Animated.

This band and their music provide examples of:

  • Alternate Music Video: "Ghost" has two music videos; an animated video spoofing Scooby-Doo, and a live action video parodying The Exorcist. The animated one was supposed to be the only video for "Ghost", but production delays for it caused the Mystery Skulls themselves to create their own video in the meantime.
  • Badass Boast:
    • The narrator of "Unstoppable" brags that he's going to curb stomp his enemies who are ganging up on him.
    • "In My Sleep" is an example from one musician to another.
      You can't do this like I do it,
      I fuckin' wrote this in my sleep


How well does it match the trope?
