You may think you can karaoke with the best of them, but the real test comes when you ditch the screen with the lyrics and step up to join a live band. That's just what Portland, Ore.'s infamous Karaoke From Hell offers: They play, you sing.

The band has more than 500 songs in its catalog, all classics--some of which aren't even available in typical karaoke books because of licensing reasons or because they're underground staples, not radio hits. At Karaoke From Hell, you can belt out everything from Janis Joplin and Black Sabbath, to songs from the cult hit musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

If you're worried about the lack of screen, don't be. The band's host also serves as a lyrical metronome, chiming in with the vocals to help you get back on track if you get lost.

So when you've seen so many amazing bands that you're filled with the urge to sing, don't head home to your shower. Go directly to the El Korah Shrine and throw your name in the hat for Karaoke From Hell.
