Collectively, MOMMYGOD has had an obsession with death since their early teens. Their extreme appearance and viewpoints are a direct result of their inability to come to grips with their own mortality. On September 23, 1973, four young men, strangers to each other, simultaneously experienced an inexplicable force, drawing them to the Government Cryogenic Research Research Laboratory at Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica. Upon meeting, their mission became immediately clear. It was decided that in order to correctly fulfill their mandate, MOMMYGOD's identities must always remain a secret, thus allowing them represent all of the Earth's people equally. The band members all share a debilitating form of shyness and stage fright. So obsessed with maintaining their own innocence and purity, the band members will only communicate with the outside world through their own mothers, or through their immortal spokesperson, MOMMYGOD Herself. MAXMILLION lives his life by the philosophy that all men are completely alone and must therefore develop multiple personalities. MAXMILLION believes that the problem with modern man man is the psychological mitosis is stifled. MAXMILLION strives to develop as many personalities as possible, and as a result is quite unpredictable. Narcoleptic and desperately afraid of light, B.O.B. insists that the "O" in his middle name is actually home to several tiny hunting and gathering societies. B.O.B. cites his major musical influence as the sounds his ankle made when he fell asleep and fell down the stairs at Dr. Eugene's house. Armless, legless and unable to see or hear, CRYING DAVID was orphaned at birth and taken in by MOMMYGOD herself. Though he has made a vow of utter isolation, when CRYING DAVID is moved emotionally (as when he feels music), he emits a melodic sound his childhood doctors called "crying". Convinced that a central casting populates and scripts his entire life, "F" begrudgingly accepts the burden of MOMMYGOD. Though his true wish is to lead a quiet and normal life, he is driven onward by visions that posses him. He is scared of new people. He is also scared of the the dark and must go to bed early each evening to avoid the night-time.
