    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.

    Crazy Town Says...
    "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."
