Bloodhound Gang

Redirected from The Bloodhound Gang

The Bloodhound Gang are a 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 Ali[?], Q-Ball[?], Evil Jared[?], Lupus[?], and Spanky G[?]. Known for humorous and often blatantly offensive and obscene, making jokes about taboo subjects from race to child abductions and incest in bizarre, stream-of-consciousness hip hop influenced lyrics, as in the group's best known hit, "Fire Water Burn" with its memorable chorus of "The roof/The roof/The roof is on fire/We don't need no water/Let the motherfucker burn/Burn motherfucker burn", which then launches into a series of verses making fun of a character who is white but has adopted many elements of black culture.

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.
