Type O Negative is a heavy metal band from Brooklyn, New York City. Their dramatic lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four" (in homage to The Beatles' "Fab Four" moniker). On April 14, 2010, lead vocalist, bassist, and principal songwriter Peter Steele died, reportedly from heart failure.
"People laugh at me because I get in the shopping cart and push myself down the aisle, like, knocking over cereals. People are laughing at me. Then I pull over and I’m like [in lowered voice], 'The day will come when you will never laugh again." -- Peter Steele
