    Crazy Town Gets Its Start

    Not to be confused with O-Town, Crazy Town from Los Angeles, California was formed by Shifty Shellshok and Epic Mazur, who've been rapping together since they were kids. Wanting to start a rock band they rounded up two guitar players, Anthony Valli and Rust Epique and bass player Faydoe Deelay. When Crazy Town first started out they called themselves the Brimstone Sluggers. They managed to record some music, but never put out their own album because they were too busy helping other people like Divine Styler, who are now known as the Black Eyed Peas.

    Crazy Town's Big Break

    Finally the guys decided it was time to break out and do their own thing, so they focused on starting a hip-hop group with a full line-up of instruments to back the rapping. In 1999 Crazy Town released their first CD called The Gift of Game. Even though two singles were released from the album it went virtually unnoticed until the latest song Butterfly was released in early 2001 and became a huge hit. In 2001, Crazy Town has released their album Darkhorse.

    "I grew up listening to hip-hop and punk rock. I wanted to incorporate rap and rock like it had never been done before. No matter what kind of music you liked, I wanted you to enjoy something about it."

    A child asked his father, "How were people born?" So his father said, "Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on." The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, "We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now." The child ran back to his father and said, "You lied to me!" His father replied, "No, your mom was talking about her side of the family."
