He gets nervous and Pickles gives him a "special pill" that "slows down your heart" but has Speed, Angel dust, a hint of coke, and a splash of acid to counteract the low.

While watching an episode of "Where are they now now? [sic]" Pickles discovers that his former band, Snakes 'n Barrels, has reformed with a new lead singer, Rikki Kixx, and are preparing for the SOBERTOWN USA No Drugs Allowed Sober Rock and Roll Show. Kixx owns a Rehab center for celebrities, including Leonard Rockstein (formerly Dr. Rockso), who is hosting show. Murderface plans to register the name of his band, Planet Piss, so he doesn't end up like Pickles. The tribunal then reveals that Kixx' takeover of Snakes 'n' Barrels is a result of the intentional malleability of the band resulting from the consumption of the mind-control agent "Totally Awesome Sweet Alabama Liquid Snake." The drug also has another side effect; it causes blue phosphorus snakes to shoot from every orifice of the user's body, causing them to go mad with rage, when they are exposed to bright lights, loud sounds, and pyrotechnics. Later, Toki registers every internet domain for "planetpiss." It is then revealed that Rikki Kixx is not really passionate about sobriety, it was forced on him legally, and his only motivation for promoting it is to deny the world the pleasures he can no longer enjoy. He details this to a servant before brutally murdering him. Dethklok travels to LA to attend the concert so that Pickles can confront his former band. At the concert, Toki is harassed by an annoying Snakes 'n' Barrels fan while Murderface discovers that Toki has taken all the Planet Piss domains. Pickles bribes his way to Snakes 'n' Barrels but is unable to convince them not to perform with Kixx. Rockso is tempted by drugs and has to face his inner clown. As the concert ignites the phosphorus snakes in the band, Toki starts beating the annoying fan and Rockso epicly relapses. Murderface confronts Toki about the domain names, but after witnessing the savage beating the fan just got, decides to let it go. The phosphoros snakes cause disturbing spectres at the concert. Rockstein after finding a stash of drugs confiscated from fans is again tempted by his clown persona to use the drugs and gives in, the result being "Dr. Rockso" is back.The audience after hearing Rockso shout "I DO COCAINE!" drinks furiously in response, defeating the purpose of the SOBERTOWN USA No Drugs Allowed Sober Rock and Roll Show. (Note: This is the first half-hour episode of the series.)Guest voice: Mike Patton, Warrel Dane, Michael Amott, Steve Smyth
18 38 "Dethrecord" Mark Brooks, Jon Schnepp Tommy Blacha, Brendon Small August 31, 2008 218 A group of terrorists steal a 10 megaton nuclear bomb and threaten to detonate it unless there was word of a new album soon. Dethklok, under great pressure, rushes to complete the album. They run into difficulties, such as buzzing whenever Skwisgaar touches his guitar while on the ground. On Dick Knubbler's suggestion, Skwisgaar records his album while free-falling from a helicopter before parachuting to the ground. Toki, who is studying music production so that he can record a song with Murderface, accidentally deletes Skwisgaar's recording, forcing him to do it all again. Nathan attempts to enhance the metalness of his vocals by wearing a medieval suit of armor. Toki and Murderface record a song "Takin' it easy" and attempt to pitch it to the band. Fortunately it is decidedly unmetal, and soundly rejected. The band then continues working on the Dethklok album, and fueled by French toast, they complete it in time to save the world from catastrophe. It is announced to the world through smoke emitting from Mordhaus' chimney, a reference to the Papal election process. 19 39 "Dethrelease" Jon Schnepp, Chris Prynoski Tommy Blacha, Brendon Small September 7, 2008 219
Toki and Skwisgaar are looking at a video, that Nathan recommended, of a man sucking his own penis. They conclude that everything they do is really an attempt to get someone else to do that for them, and if they could do it themselves, they would retire from music. Murderface interrupts this discussion with a fire drill, as he was recently promoted to Fire Chief of the band in a clean sweep (unopposed) election. We then see Mr. Selatcia and Vater Orlaag discussing General Crozier's recent promotion to chief of all US military operations. Orlaag refers to Selatcia as "master" before asking what they will do about Crozier, to which Selatcia responds, "I will enlighten him." Then, a meeting of world leaders gets briefed on Dethklok. Dethklok is now the world's 7th largest economy and the underdeveloped countries are dependent on the band to release their new album to stimulate those nations' economy again. This is threatened by a terrorist group called The Revengencers who General Crozier promises on his life to stop. While the Klokateers prepare for the release of the new album, the members of Dethklok attempt to suck their own penises. Meanwhile, the Revengencers form an alliance with Lavona Succuboso. Offdensen tests the defenses of Mordhaus, including a new energy shield around Mordhaus. He also readies an elite squad of Klockateers for battle. Then, immediately before the release, Offdensen finds each member of Dethklok in his room, laying on his shoulders attempting to force his own penis into his mouth. After the concert, the band holds a party at Mordhaus, which is ended by the Revengencers' attack. They use an energy weapon against the Mordhaus shields and then against Mordhaus itself. Offedensen launches his squad of Klokateers while Murderface uses his extensive experience as Fire Chief to lead people inside Mordhaus to safety. Pickles and Skwisgaar rush to save the master copy of the record they just recorded and Nathan starts dragging a thoroughly drunk Toki out to safety. The Revengencers send their brainwashed minions into Mordhaus. The minions start indiscriminately killing Dethklok fans and attack Pickles and Skwisgaar. General Crozier watches the chaos from a helicopter. Lavona attacks Nathan while Offdensen rushes to take out the energy weapon. Skwisgaar and Pickles successfully fend off the minions using their instruments as weapons. Nathan kisses Lavona before she knees him in the crotch. Just before she can use the Loin Extractor on him, Toki smashes one of his vodka bottles on her head, leaving her unconscious. Offedensen's charge on the energy weapon takes heavy casualties but successfully destroys the weapon. He then attempts to escape on a hover-cycle with the Metal Masked Assassin in hot pursuit. The nameless teenager shoots Offdensen with a crossbow. He lands on the ground, incapacited. Crozier then knocks out the teenager with the butt of a shotgun, before being confronted by Orlaag and Selatcia. Selatcia then says, "I'm going to show you something because you need to know" before placing his hand on Crozier's forehead. We then see through Crozier's eyes flashes of five planets and stone tablets representing the five members of Dethklok, as well as a figure reminiscent of Selatcia wearing elaborate bone armor, while a voice ominously says, "You are mine now." Selatcia and Orlaag disappear, leaving Crozier whose eyes are now glowing red. Edgar Jomfru corners Skwisgaar and Pickles with a shotgun, prompting Pickles to admit that he managed to suck his own penis and because of this he is prepared to die. Edgar remembers his life before his brother's death, when he lived for Dethklok and is unable to pull the trigger before being set upon and mercilessly beaten by Klokateers. Meanwhile, Offdensen is being furiously beaten by the assassin, who does not kill him immediately, explaining, "I want you to stay alive as I torture you, I want you to feel the pain." Nathan incapacitates him with a flaming log, saying, "That's my bread and butter you're fucking with." The band has survived, but Offdensen's injuries may be too severe for him to survive, and Mordhaus is burnt to the ground.

# Title Directed by Written by Original Airdate Production Code 40 "Renovationklok" Jon Schnepp Brendon Small November 8, 2009 301
Dethklok faces life without Offdensen, who has passed away as a result of his injuries at the hands of the Metal Masked Assassin. Mordhaus is now a floating fortress and is undergoing heavy renovations to repair the damage from the Revengencers attack, but due to the band's inability to manage their finances they find themselves in a financial crisis. The band plans the most expensive concert in history to herald their return, but run afoul of their record label's president's son, who wishes to get revenge for an incident at the beginning of Dethklok's career, in which Nathan Explosion punched him over a verbal insult. The concert begins as planned, but the CEO's son literally pulls the plug on Dethklok and refuses to let them continue until they renegotiate their contract on terms much more favorable to the label. Just as Nathan prepares to sign the new contract, Charles Offdensen appears, apparently back from the dead, and tells Dethklok that they should continue with the show and that he will take care of the contract. After the band finishes their concert, Offdensen explains that he had himself pronounced dead at the scene (at the end of Season 2), and that there was something he had to do, and that he will tell Dethklok about it when the time is right.

Trying to distance themselves from celebrity status and re-connect with normal people, Dethklok decides to join Thunderhorse, in the process kicking out all the original members.

42 "Dethhealth" Jon Schnepp Brendon Small, Kristofor Brown November 22, 2009 303
After a near-death experience, Dethklok must face the brutality of going to a doctor. They attempt to get good checkup results by cleansing their bodies by drinking bleach, giving Nathan horrible nightmares about his teeth. Nathan visits a dentist while the rest of Dethklok goes to the doctor. During the visit, Murderface accidentally ejaculates on a doctor's face. Afterwards, the checkup results show that Pickles has a terminal illness. Murderface then confronts the doctor about his experience, and finds that the doctor is flirting with him, establishing that the doctor is gay and thus nullifying any possibility that Murderface is gay. Nathan finally gets his teeth worked on by a suicidal dentist. More lab results come back and reveal that Pickles is not dying as he switched his urine sample with Murderface who switched his pee with Skwisgaar who switched his pee with Nathan who switched his pee with Toki who switched his pee with his cat, which is actually dead. The band entombs the cat in a gigantic feline statue and places it next to the Great Pyramids of Egypt. The sand gives way under the enormous metal figure and it falls over on top of the Sphinx, crushing it. Finally, Nathan befriends his dentist and goes on a hunting trip with him. Then the dentist says, "Check this out", before placing his shotgun in his own mouth and blowing his head off.Guest voices: Ace Frehley

After many paternity lawsuits, Skwisgaar decides that he should find his father. Several thousand men came forward, claiming to be Skwisgaar's father as they had sex with his mother, but DNA testing finds no match. Meanwhile, much to Pickle's jealousy, Murderface steps up to be a father figure to Skwisgaar. He then receives a message from his mother, Surfetta, saying she found his father. Skwisgaar quits the band and moves back to Sweden. There, he discovers that Surfetta was referring to his new stepfather, as opposed to his biological father. He becomes annoyed at their constant making out, and eventually snaps. He shoves his stepfather onto a glass table, shattering it. Back at Mordhaus, the band seems to crumble without having Skwisgaar there. They decide to go to Sweden and get Skwisgaar back. In Sweden, Skwisgaar apologizes to his stepfather, and begins working in a lumberyard with him. Later on that night, Skwisgaar is at the pub when the other members of the band walk in. He says he is not coming back, and that he is finally happy. Before they leave, Nathan tells him that he is a god and he won't be able to live with regular people. When going home that night with his stepfather, they walk in the house to find Surfetta having sex with two men. Skwisgaar's stepfather runs away, and when Skwisgaar feels that he is without a dad again, he runs into the forest. He realizes that what Nathan said is true, that he isn't a regular person, but he is a guitar god. He runs back to the band, saying he's coming with them. Murderface begins acting like a father again, and told Pickles "Get out, you belong in a garbage can", much like Pickle's real father told him many years ago.

On the show, they judge a nu metal band known as Get Thee Hence and like the group so much that they decide to start their own record label called MurderTooth Records and sign Get Thee Hence as their first and only band. While Toki and Murderface learn the horrors of managing a band, Pickles, Nathan, and Skwisgaar are unhappy with their new 47 songs because it lacks negativity.

Toki tries to reunite Rockzo's band, and make his life more successful by investing all of Dethklok's vacation fund into the ultimate Zazz Blammymatazz reunion. Dethklok becomes actively engaged to the success of the concert due to the fact that Toki wasted all of the band's vacation fund for their trip to Disneyland on the concert. It is revealed that this is at least the 4th attempt to reunite Zazz Blammymatazz. The other reunion concerts were canceled for a multitude of reasons, usually revolving around Rockzo's drug addictions. We also learn that Toki has an irrational fear of bicentennial quarters, and why he is so forgiving of Rockzo. The band tries everything to get people to go to the concert, including putting up posters, setting up interviews with the media, and Murderface even scalps tickets. During one final interview, Dr. Rockzo's past is revealed, his original fall was caused by a love affair he had with a 14 year old girl named "Dory McLean" in 1981. This causes Rockzo to run away, and hide in a crackhouse. Toki as a result falls into a deep emotional depression. Rockzo attempts suicide by snorting a powerful drug, but the band manages to find and save Rockzo from certain death. Rockzo plays the concert; everything runs smoothly until Murderface shows Toki all the money he got from scalping tickets (consisting mostly of quarters). Toki freaks out and accidentally sets fire to the stage. Many die, but in the end Dethklok make their money back, and Rockzo is reunited with Dory Mclean.Guest voices: Laraine Newman
49 "Doublebookedklok" aka "The Dead Man" Jon Schnepp Brendon Small October 24, 2010 310
Growing annoyed with Offdensen's neglecting them in favor of work, Dethklok unwittingly double-books a gig in both Israel and Syria, putting the entire world in danger. Offdensen gets visibly angry and yells at the band for the first time in the entire series, going so far as to order them out of the room while conducting a planning session trying to fix the mess the band has created. The Tribunal initiates its "Falconback Project", and it is revealed that Offdensen witnessed Mr. Selatcia brainwashing General Crozier in "Black Fire Upon Us" and may know not only of the Falconback Project, but Selatcia's true identity. The band runs away, but Offdensen goes after them. They reconcile, and Dethklok plays the show, using Offdensen's plan to use 3D holograms to play both concerts and avert a war. In the final scenes Offdensen is hinted to have some connection to Selatcia and is revealed to be holding Edgar Jomfru prisoner for his own plans.Guest voices: Dave Grohl, Kirk Hammett, Malcolm McDowell, Victor Brandt and Laraine Newman
