Fortunately, the drinks are cheap and stiff at Atlanta’s most surreal setting, the fallout shelter/basement called the Clermont Lounge. At KARAOKE TUESDAYS, you’re going to need a few shots to numb the terror of watching someone who could be your grandma get nekkid and sing Kelly Clarkson. Add a few more if you plan to build up the courage to perform in front of the abusive but funny host, Rotknee. less...

Are you ready to rock? Or are you ready to shout along lyrics with a drunken slur from the audience as others belt out rock tunes? Either way, 10 High's METAL-SOME MONDAYS helps fulfill rock-star fantasies for the musically challenged. Now 2 years old and still going strong, the karaoke night features a live group (dubbed the, gasp, Metal-Some Monday band) that backs eager singers who belt out tracks from AC/DC to Zeppelin. Big hair is optional, but don't shout into the mic. The band hates that. less...

Tucked beside the lanes at Buford Highway's INTERNATIONAL BOWL AND ARCADE are a hallway of private, by-the-hour rooms from which emanate all kinds of moans, groans and guttural noises. But these aren't sex scenes, it's karaoke! With the right amount of reverb in the resounding stereo and a background of Thailand rice patties on the big screen teleprompter, anyone can sound like Usher ... if he were in a car wreck ... underwater. But who cares? Cheap pitchers of beer are the great equalizer, and your entire party can take it as a challenge to one-up each other without anyone giving you shit. Karaoke here can be serious fun, and seriously funny. less...

Charlie Chaplin may have been a silent film star, but that doesn't prevent the Roswell bar that bears his name from whooping up one helluva holla. We're here to sing the praises of singing at CHAPLINS. On Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, folks find their three minutes of infamy in this welcoming venue just off the Roswell square. You could hear Roberta Flack or Reba McEntire, Blondie or Clint Black, Train, Poison or Green Day, or at least an off-key version of them. "555 S.

Given the cross-section of tattooed and subcultural humanity that shows up, MONDAY NIGHTS AT THE LOCAL can sometimes resemble the L.A. karaoke club on the now-defunct "Angel" - the one populated by demons, vampires and other assorted creatures of the night. But don't worry, the only thing supernatural at this chummy Ponce de Leon neighborhood hangout is the, er, "otherworldly" versions of favorite songs you're likely to hear warbled by the bar's inhibition-challenged patrons and staffers. Bring either a high threshold for pain or earplugs. "758 Ponce de Leon Ave., 404-873-5002." less...

Sunday night karaoke isn't pretty at THE CRAZY HORSE BAR & GRILL. Then again, it's never really pretty over there. But if one thing reigns true at the Crazy Horse, it's the consistency of their clientele. People always seem to be having fun - no matter what time of day. On karaoke nights, that adds up not only to drunken singing, but half-ass karate kicks, dancing in grind-train formation and yes, even falling down and spilling beer - just the way sloppy drunkenness was meant to be.

The karaoke experience at INTERNATIONAL BOWL AND ARCADE ain't just OTP - it's out of this world, with weekend cosmic bowling, bouncy video games, french fries to fried rice, even import domestics (you'll never look at a Bud the same way after you wrap your fingers around IBA's curvaceous bottles). And did we mention the karaoke? There's plenty of authentic video karaoke along Buford, but International Bowl rents private rooms by the hour. So the only people who have to suffer are your nearest and dearest. less...

1287 Glenwood Ave. 404-624-4411 If you walk by Mary's in East Atlanta late Tuesday unaware that its karaoke night, you might just think you're walking by a great party. Though it's a gay bar, karaoke night draws a mixed crowd that's always supportive when performers dig into all corners of host CJ's vast song library. When the right singer picks the right song, the mood just lifts off. Often, that performer is CJ himself, whose skill with anthemic Diana Ross songs stirs the crowd enough to make everything right in the world, if only for a few minutes. less...

Crazy Horse Bar & Grill (Permanently Closed)
It seems that the word "karaoke" is Japanese for "Hey, look at me."

It seems that the word "karaoke" is Japanese for "Hey, look at me." While the fad may have lost a bit of its trendiness in the past year or two, there are still several bars where the spectacle of drunken fools attempting to sing popular songs continues in all its deconstructive glory. Few of the places have the uniqueness of the Crazy Horse, a blue-collar watering hole with a particularly interesting clientele. Where else can you find a mix of Cabbagetown natives, Hispanic migrant workers, ugly-ass hookers and some of the orneriest down-and-outers in the city basking in their few minutes of fame on Thursday and Sunday evenings? Whether screaming their way through Guns N' Roses, slurring a Merle Haggard classic or destroying an already insufferable Celine Dion power ballad, the patrons give it their all. You will laugh so hard you will cry, or vice versa. less...
