Über Bloodhound Gang
Pennsylvania quintet combine the adolescent humor of early Beasties with the Funk Rock tone of mid-1990s Rapcore. Crunchy guitars and furious drums back Jimmy Pop Ali's shout-raps about weed, beer and assorted sexploits. Their proudly obnoxious style won them major airplay for a minute, though once Kid Rock and Eminem blew up, all but the most loyal fans pretty much forgot about the Bloodhound Gang. They released their third LP Hooray For Boobies in 2000, and returned five years later with Hefty Fine, but failed to match the commercial impact of their earlier work.
