Ten Masked Men is a Britishdeath metalcover band who specialize in covering pop songs. The band was formed in 1996 when Mark ("The Mauler") and Dave ("The Chef") Hutson did a cover of Oasis' "Wonderwall" to annoy a friend. The song was much the same as the original, except it was played with distorted guitars and death metal grunts. It was recorded on a 4-track in a bedroom and was soon followed by "Stayin' Alive", "Into the Groove" and "Beat It". These simple recordings were played to friends and in some clubs, and became increasingly popular. There was still no band name at that time but the moniker Ten Masked Men was adopted after hearing a news broadcast about masked terrorists. In addition the band adopted wearing masks as it was felt that a masked appearance would fit in well with the idea of playing covers.
