One of the most original hard rock/heavy metal bands to rise up from the United States underground; The original and most prominent lineup featuring Page Hamilton on guitar and vocals, Henry Bogdan on bass, John Stanier on drums, and various background guitarists. Their original sound was based around heavy guitar distortion with droning riffs, outrageous guitar shredding and solos (influenced by bands such as Sonic Youth, Void and Killing Joke as well as many jazz musicians), loud chuggy bass lines, heavy snare drumming, and background guitars to create a "wall of noise" sound.

In 1992 they blasted into the mainstream with their second album "Meantime", which featured their most known song "Unsung". The band also released "Give It" and "In the Meantime" as singles, but both songs flopped in sales and didn't receive as much attention as "Unsung". Helmet's two albums "Strap It On" and "Meantime" were both so groundbreaking that it spawned many watered down imitator bands that ripped from Helmet's sound, the most prominent three being Korn, Deftones and Tool. This move infuriated and disgusted the band, giving them the desire to do something much more experimental to alienate themselves from their imitators.

In 1994, Helmet released their third album "Betty"; a much more melodic album which owed more to bluesy and jazzy heavy metal, which featured the songs "Wilma's Rainbow" and "Milquetoast", both of which became minor hits on modern rock radio. Helmet have gone on to release 3 more albums and still remain a favorite of Modern rock, Hard rock and Heavy metal fans today.
HELMET are a very great, but HIGHLY underrated band.

1. the top of a man's penis, or a hermaphodite's penis I guess as well. Also reffered to as a purple helmet.
2. A condom, as worn on the head of your penis, perhaps a more accurate term.
3. A kevlar, or plastic covering for your less important head, as worn while riding a motorcycle or visiting a construction site. Or oddly, enough, while exploring actual caverns. See spelunking.
Timmy, what have I told you about playing indoor sports without a helmet? Naughty boy!

an individual who is in need of a helmet, for their mental capacity is so small that thoughts floating around can hurt their head, causing their brow to furrow. a slight tilting of the head is also common.
that guy over there is such a helmet. he told me that he would rather have the weekend in the middle of the week, because it would be nice to have a break.

an often unappreciated and overlooked alternative rock band from the early to mid 1990s.
Helmet, sure put on a great show at the club last night!

n. A parasite. Specifically a college guy you don't know who comes to your party early with lots of his helmet friends. They bring enormous cups for beer drinking and knock out half of the keg before anyone else shows up. They are nitwits. When women arrive, they cock block you either by talking directly to the women and making them think they are your friends, thus branding you a helmet, or acting like such idiots that they ruin the party and your rep, or by kicking the keg just as the women show up. Then they leave without pitching in for the next one.

Root: suggested root is the helmets football players wear; helmets show up at a party and behave much like a football team made up of losers and dorks.
Look at this f*cking helmet puking on my carpet. His beer is warm and flat because his cup is too big. He tried to rape my girlfriend in the bathroom. He broke the coffee table trying to dance on it. Now everybody is leaving. F*cking helmet.
