Body Count

Body Count is a heavy metal band, best known for being fronted by Ice T and causing a furor with the release of "Cop Killer" from their debut album, Body Count[?]. Besides Ice T, Body Count included Ernie-C[?], Mooseman[?], Beatmaster V[?] and D-Roe[?]. A few months after Body Count was released, parent groups and other advocates began protesting "Cop Killer". After months of intense pressure, Warner Brothers took the song off the album. Ice T left the company soon after. Ice T's own Priority Records[?] released Body Count's follow-up, Born Dead[?]. Sales were slow, and Mooseman left the group. Violent Demise: Last Days[?] (1997) received better reviews than ever before, but sales were still low.
