Bloodhound Gang is a Collegeville, Pennsylvania-based American comedy alternative/punk band, although it began as a rap group and gradually changed their genre throughout the years. Their songs typically have humorous and off-beat, satirical lyrics that often deal with sexual subjects and contain many puns and innuendos.

They are best known for their hit singles "Fire Water Burn" and "The Bad Touch". Formed in 1992,[1] Bloodhound Gang has sold more than 6 million albums.[1][2]

History

Early days

The Bloodhound Gang began as a small alternative band called Bang Chamber 8. It consisted of Jimmy Pop and Daddy Long Legs, both graduates of Perkiomen Valley High School. They released an eponymous tape before changing their name to the Bloodhound Gang, a reference to "The Bloodhound Gang", a segment on the 1980s PBS kids' show 3-2-1 Contact that featured three young detectives solving mysteries and fighting crime. Unable to book shows anywhere else, the Bloodhound Gang first performed an extra room at Evil Jared Hasselhoff's house, in exchange for Schlitz, Marlboros, and a chance to hand out their first demo tape, entitled Just Another Demo.[1] When the floor caved in one night, they began performing every month at CBGBs in New York City. When asked about the band's tenure at the club, Jimmy Pop was quoted as saying, "I've seen cavemen with better clubs."[1]
