In their live sets, the Coffin Caddies incorporate the technical underpinnings of punk and innovative twists. Singer/songwriter Rei Horror believes that real life is too difficult to write about and that fictional subjects are more entertaining. As a result, the band's lyrics are based on videogames, comic books, and movies discussing Michael Myers and Spider-Man. When the Coffin Caddies perform covers, they make sure the tunes are rarities blended into their always-changing set lists, consisting primarily of their 21 original numbers. Re-creating the stage personas of the Misfits and the Ramones, the boys use simple three-chord progressions with short, simple melodies and haunting vocals. Oh, and the Coffin Caddies' energy-driven concerts are loud. Very loud.
