Bloodhound Gang Tickets for Sale

The Bloodhound Gang are an American post-grunge rock-and-roll band, originally from King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. The group formed in 1994 (see 1994 in music) and currently consists of Jimmy Pop (born James Franks), DJ Q-Ball, Evil Jared Hasselhoff, Lüpüs Thünder and Willie the New Guy. Spanky G left in 1998. Known for humorous, obscene, and often offensive lyrics, the Bloodhound gang makes jokes about taboo subjects from race to child abductions and incest in bizarre, stream-of-consciousness hip-hop influenced lyrics. A common theme in the band's lyrics are elaborate metaphors, similes and puns, such as "you came twice last year like a Sears catalogue," "like Times New Roman, you know the type." or "Like the Jim Jones cult, I'll take you out with one punch" Perhaps the group's best known hit is "Fire Water Burn" which contained the memorable and much reproduced chorus of "The roof/The roof/The roof is on fire/We don't need no water/Let the motherfucker burn/Burn motherfucker burn." In 2004 it was featured in the film Fahrenheit 9/11 anecdotally as a song popular with American soldiers fighting in Iraq.

From King of Prussia, PA, the Bloodhound Gang hit the alternative charts in 1996 with a blend of obnoxious sexual innuendo and apolitically correct stoner wit reminiscent of the early Beastie Boys — mixing punk rock with hip-hop much as the Beasties had done. Frontman Jimmy Pop Ali and Lupus produced the band's first release, the 1994 Dingleberry Haze EP. A year later, the duo was signed to Columbia for their debut album, Use Your Fingers. After it flopped and Columbia dropped their contract, Ali and Lupus added bassist Evil Jared, drummer Spanky G and DJ Q-Ball for second LP One Fierce Beer Coaster. The Bloodhound Gang released the album in mid-1996 on the tiny Republic label, but moved back to a major label (DGC) later that year, thanks to MTV and alternative-radio airplay of the single "Fire Water Burn." The oft-delayed Hooray for Boobies followed in early 2000.

The band formed in 1994 and released the Dingleberry Haze EP, then signed to Columbia Records for the full length debut, Use Your Fingers. The album was a flop and the group lost their record contract but then signed to Geffen and released 1996's One Fierce Beer Coaster. "Fire Water Burn" became a major hit and enabled the band to record a successful follow-up, Hooray for Boobies in 2000. Hooray for Boobies included the hit single "The Bad Touch" which featured the chorus "You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel." Due to its happy melody and instrumentation the song is one of the most played songs in German Adult contemporary radio stations.

The album also featured a song about porn star Chasey Lain, and A Lapdance is So Much Better When the Stripper is Crying. In 2003, the band released a DVD entitled One Fierce Beer Run, which chronicles their One Fierce Beer Coaster tour of 1997. The band's next album, Hefty Fine, is due for release some time during late 2004 to early 2005. It's original title, Heavy Flow, was scrapped when it was noticed that fellow musician Moby had a song with the same name.
