Similar comedy style and length, bursts of hilarious moments throughout each episode of each series.
Both are slice of life shows dealing with music. The main characters are kind of similar and they are also members of bands. There is more drama and romance in BECK, while D. M. C. has more comedy.
Rock n Roll and crazy comedy, kind of like FLCL.
Finally something that has the same type of humor. Great anime. Watch it!
very damn funny. wether u like metal music or not, u won't be able to stop laughing. & the episode is like 10 min.
Both are parodies full of gross and dirty jokes. Also, both have 2 stories per episode and a lot of nonsense that somehow works in the plot's favor.

Some crazy sense of humor.

Even though one of them is about music and the other one is school life, the humor is about the same where a pure heated guy gets into the wrong situation in some funny way
You may like The Legend of Black Heaven if you have seen Detroit Metal City other way around I don't know as Detroit Metal City feature very bad language and sick humour.

But both animes contain music in rock genre, the main characters also have two kind of life style or personality and they have some problem with their relationships too while they performing or what ever it calls.

If you liked gintama for its lame but awesome comedy, you'll love DMC!
Both have similar fast-paced styles of crrude humor. However, the episoides in DMC follow an actual plot, whereas Gyagu Manga Biyori tends to resort more to randomness.

Very crude humor featured in both titles though DMC is much more extreme.
Probably the two funniest anime I've seen. Even if you don't care about school life and music themed anime (I don't) both are definitely worth watching if you like inappropriate humor. Suitable for adults.
Dark comedy with simple but outrageous animation and pictures, mentoined similar topics like sexuality, aberrations. + using metal/rock music
Both of them have a kilograms of black humor and misunderstanding between characters.

Both are very funny. Think of Seitokai Yakuindomo as DMC's lighter counterpart :D
Both anime are crazy, full of expression, action and vulgar jokes.
Also, they have short episodes.
Both are filled with comedy, although of vastly differing genres, but the biggest similarity between the two remains the big draw of in show music, and this is where both shows sign. K-ON has sort of half over detailed concert/music video, while DMC has the crowd's reactions to unusual stage events, which remains the funniest thing about DMC. Fans of these probably won't overlap, with K-ON picked up by S-O-L fans and DMC by fans of Cromatarie or metalheads, but while DMC is pure untampered awesome, K-ON's awesome-ness doesn't really show until you think about how much you are enjoying a story about 4 girls in high school with musical aspirations and somehow, words like "badass" can get thrown around, esp with Sawako.
The setting might be different but the fact that they are both hilarious shows and are somewhat short anime, DMC being only about 12 minutes and Senyuu, only about 5 minutes, but can leave you laughing up until the end are what makes these show interesting.
Main Hero have some similarities
-Had the Unexpected Life
-Had same Problem,that's "Dream "
-funny moments when they came out can always make smile and laugh
-Had someone they love
Both hilariously random with episodes comprising of many short segments.

DMC focuses over the life in a death metal band while DKNN focuses on the lives of highschool boys. DMC is also a little bit more vulgar.
DMC, what can you say about this show? It's weird nasty and frickin hilarious. Level E can get a little gory at times but I think if you like the dumb funny in either you'll at least enjoy the other.
Both animes are totally random and hilarious, feature great short scenes and are rather fast paced!
Both quite silly, but in the end so damn funny. Detroit Metal City is a lot more offensive, but if you watched Yondemasu yo, Azazel-san without any crying about it being offensive thet you'll be fine with Detroit Metal City.
Despite having different approaches, both shows focus on music. Each of them has a character who likes The Sex Pistols. While NANA has more romance, DMC has more comedy.
Wanna try another anime with crude humor? Try Detroit Metal City.

While the music is nowhere near similar, both DMC and Sexy Commando have a fast paced and absurd sense of humor that makes you laugh so hard you have to pause and rewind the show to catch what you missed.
Both are insanely hilarious.

Both are of these hilarious comedies have short episodes and know no shame.

Short episodes with similar sense of humor.
Berserk= gore & death DMC= music bout gore & death
Both are comedies with random humor that make fun of social groups and their values. Detroit Metal City has a more well-defined history, while Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei has more intelligent jokes and social analysis.

Both shows have the same black comedy sense of humor, and the main character in both series is an anti-hero came from the depths of hell to rule this world with all his epicness!

Bastard and Detroit Metal City are from different genres. But both pays a homage to heavy metal icons and sub-culture.

They both have the same style of "in your face" humour, and both main characters have inexplicable motivations (why does Negishi keep singing for DMC? / how the fu*K did Excel end up working for Ilpalazzo?)
Negishi is Kasuga in an alternate universe where his corrupter extraordinaire (Nakamura) is his band manager.

Here, his love for verbose literature is an affinity for Swedish pop. His blossoming perversion is a shameless alter-ego. His crush on an actually-totally-attainable-if-it-weren't-for-plot idealized girl is a crush on an actually-totally-attainable-if-it-weren't-for-plot idealized girl. Some common themes: moral deterioration and distress it causes.... yes, even when played for laughs. To quote Aku no Hana's MC himself (paraphrasing) "comedy and horror are similar in that they both stem from the element of surprise."

The cherry on top? Same director.
The both are very funy!
