I Set My Friends on Fire (often abbreviated ISMFOF) is an American experimental group from Miami, Florida. The band was formed in 2007 by Matt Mehana and former member Nabil Moo. The group signed with Epitaph Records before releasing their debut album, You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter, in 2008. The band's second album, Astral Rejection, was released on June 21, 2011. They garnered a large audience due in part to MySpace, where their first single, a rendition of Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" (originally entitled "Crank That Cavalry Boy") received more than one million plays. Their third album, Caterpillar Sex, is set to be released before the end of 2015.
