Based in New York, White Zombie was originally a noise rock band. White Zombie are better-known for their later heavy metal-oriented sound, with lyrics heavily influenced by horror films. The group officially disbanded in 1998 shortly after the release of singer Rob Zombie's solo album “Hellbilly Deluxe.”

In 1992, White Zombie released “La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1,” the album which launched them into mainstream recognition. By the end of 1993, the album had been certified gold by the RIAA and by the time the tour in support of the album ended it had gone platinum.

In 1995, “Astro Creep: 2000” was released, featuring "More Human than Human" which would soon become a big hit. In 1996, an album of remixes was released under the title “Supersexy Swingin' Sounds,” but the band broke up in 1998.
