Formed in 1976, the Mentors are a Los Angeles-based shock-rock band know for their offensive, chauvinistic lyrics. Self-proclaimed inventors of heavy metal subset “Rape Rock,” The Mentors influenced many other bands like the Murder Junkies and the MILF Hunters. The band made headlines when lead singer Eldon “El Duce” Hoke died unexpectedly in 1997. Today, The Mentors continue to tour and record new music with singer/drummer Marc “Mad Dog Duce” DeLeon.
