The 10 Best Aqua Teen Hunger Force Musical Guests

Aqua Teen Hunger Force, also known by its alternate titles Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1, Aqua Something You Know Whatever, and Aqua TV Show Show, has been one of the most bizarre and ubiquitous shows in television history. As an 11-minute animated feature on Adult Swim, it's been enormously successful, spawning a film and ten seasons and counting.

It's crazy how popular the show has been and how long it has survived, especially given that every other show it debuted with in 2001 has since ended or been canceled. Nevertheless, Aqua Teen survives and has a massive cult fanbase.

Since show creators Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis are both musicians and big music fans, it should come as no surprise that they've managed to attract some big names to their obscure, weird TV show. Some of the best episodes, in fact, have centered on the latest rock star or rapper to show up and wreak havoc in the Aqua Teens' world. Today, let's take a look at the ten best of the bunch.
