L�p�s Th�nder is the umlaut-using, head-banging, devil-worshipping guitarist for the Bloodhound Gang. L�p�s Th�nder also runs the Bloodhound Gang Artificial Cerebral Palsy Home Page all by himself. Although it is a time consuming endeavor that has completely replaced social interaction with other human beings, it seems to have paid off. Currently, www.bloodhoundgang.com receives over one million hits per month.
Evil Jared Hasselhoff is the bassist for the Bloodhound Gang. If Rowdy Roddy Piper, Lee Majors and Dee Dee Ramone could somehow fornicate and produce offspring, it would be really vile to watch. But, it would also spawn Evil Jared Hasselhoff. Evil Jared Hasselhoff also puts together the Bloodhound Gang Hate Club Hate Chronicle.
Besides wicky wicky wackin' for the Bloodhound Gang, D.J. Q-Ball guest deejays at clubs throughout the world in the hopes of, "runnin' on ups, in all da bizotches guts." Needless to say, D.J. Q-Ball is a card-carrying wigger. He also looks after the Bloodhound Gang Hate Club.
After winning "The Hot Dog Eating Contest", "The Magnum P.I. Trivia Challenge" and "The-One-Hundred-Push-Ups-In-One-Hundred-Seconds-Competition", Willie The New Guy filled the void that was left by a community-college-bound Spanky G as drummer for the Bloodhound Gang. But since he is the new guy, nobody really cares about him.
Fred Durst is not in the Bloodhound Gang but we thought if we mentioned him, you would keep reading our biography.
Drawing thoroughly on his vast repository of American popular culture knowledge and his affinity for lowbrow humor, Jimmy Pop's lyrics are one-half wit and one-half half-wit. Jimmy Pop's so-called lyrics also produce the continuity between the so-called songs on "Hooray For Boobies". His bandmates supply music that is diverse, to say the least. Heavy Metal riffs, Electronica chirps, Punk Rock chords and Hip-Hop beats combine to create music that is reminiscent of everything from Slayer to Crystal Method to NOFX to the Wu-Tang Clan.
Since none of the clubs in Philadelphia would book the Bloodhound Gang in the early days (club owners had this silly notion about attracting patrons), they played at Evil Jared Hasselhoff's house just about every other weekend. That lasted until one evening when the first floor caved into the basement. In search of a new stomping ground, the Bloodhound Gang began performing at world-famous C.B.G.B.s every couple of weeks. When asked about their tenure at the legendary venue, Jimmy Pop was quoted as saying, "I've seen cavemen with better clubs."
That was in 1993. The band went on to produce a couple of demos; "Just Another Demo" and "The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack To Hitler's Handicapped Helpers" which eventually led to 1994's "Dingleberry Haze" and 1995's "Use Your Fingers". After "Use Your Fingers" failed miserably the original Bloodhound Gang disbanded, leaving Jimmy Pop and L�p�s Th�nder alone to meet obligations for an American tour. So in the fall of 1995, Jimmy Pop called on his friend Evil Jared Hasselhoff who he met at Temple University, from which Evil Jared Hasselhoff had received a degree in Business and Jimmy Pop had received a degree in Mass Communications and a minor in History. Having just graduated, Evil Jared Hasselhoff was spending his days "downing sixes of Milwaukee's Beast, watching the Duke Boys and fraudulently collecting unemployment" so he was willing and able to do back-up vocals and entertain Bloodhound Gang crowds. Evil Jared Hasselhoff's vision of 'entertainment' included eating live mice, drinking his own throw-up and allowing audience members to throw darts into his back for a prize.
A few months later, the Bloodhound Gang added D.J. Q-Ball who was recommended by his cousin, a Kinko's customer service representative that just happened to take the Bloodhound Gang's new passport photos for a European tour in 1995. The first half of 1996 was spent recording the now legendary "One Fierce Beer Coaster" which was released in September of 1996 on Republic Records. Within a month, "Fire Water Burn" became the most requested song at alternative radio in the United States of America and propelled the band to global notoriety. Suddenly, the band went from being nobodies to being nobodies appearing on television with Howard Stern, Jenny McCarthy, and Riki Lake and partying with the likes of Corey Feldman, Kato Kaelin, and Larry "Bud" Melman. Loser anthems "Why's Everybody Always Pickin' On Me?" and "I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks" followed "Fire Water Burn" as singles that drove over two million people around the world to discover the Grammy-nominated "One Fierce Beer Coaster".
Unlike most bands, the Bloodhound Gang write the treatments for their music videos. This includes such cinematic masterpieces as "Kiss Me Where It Smells Funny", "Fire Water Burn", "I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks", "Along Comes Mary" and "The Bad Touch", all of which will be featured on the long length video releases, "One Fierce Beer Run" and "Hooray For Groupies".
