The Bloodhound Gang Biography


Home > Music > B > Bloodhound Gang, The > Biography


Birth Place: Collegeville, Pennsylvania
Years Active: 1992 – present
Genres: Comedy Rock, Rapcore, Alternative Rock, Punk Rock, Post-punk


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.

In March 1995 the Bloodhound Gang signed a record deal with Columbia Records. They released their first full-length album, titled “Use Your Fingers.” They began touring around the United States. When the tour ended, the deal with Columbia Records was dropped.

In March 1996, the band, complete with a new line-up, recorded their second full-length album, “One Fierce Beer Coaster,” first released on Cheese Factory Records (now Republic Records), and re-released on Geffen Records in 1998. This album contained "Fire Water Burn" which ranked among the top songs on the Billboard Charts in 1997, reaching #18 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and also #28 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.

On February 29, 2000, they released their third album, “Hooray for Boobies.” Powered by the hit single "The Bad Touch", they embarked on two more tours of Europe, where their popularity had increased dramatically ("The Bad Touch" and “Hooray for Boobies” reached #1 in Germany, where "Along Comes Mary" was also a Top 10 hit). They returned after selling over five million albums.

The band's album, “Hefty Fine,” was released on September 13, 2005. The first single, "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo", gained heavy rotation on music video channels. Although the track "No Hard Feelings" recently broke into the Modern Rock Top 50, their second single "Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss" (which is featured in a Blaupunkt, a BGL Grand Wizard ad) has started radio circulation with a music video airing limitedly on a few music channels.

In late 2010 the band released a new song called “Altogether Ooky” which was included on a Greatest Hits album, titled "Show Us Your Hits," also released in 2010.
