Video: "A Dangerous Man"

Foxy Shazam is an American rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio that formed in 2004. The band name originated from a term that was used by the students at singer Eric Sean Nally's high school which was a slang for "cool shoes." On February 7, 2010, their single "Unstoppable" was featured in Super Bowl XLIV.

Many media outlets compare the band to Queen and Meat Loaf because of their use of theatrics and over-the-tops lyrics. The band themselves have noted the similarities but believe that they are just all influenced by the same things. It's not always music that influences the band, it could even be a smell that triggers a memory.

Nally has said an album that influenced him was Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill. The magazine, Alternative Press, has compared the band to bands like Queen, My Chemical Romance, and the Darkness while also believing that the band has a very unique sound that should best be seen live.
