Blindside

The title given to this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. The correct title is blindside.

blindside is a hardcore band from Stockholm, Sweden. They formed in 1994 as "Underfree" and kept that name for two years before releasing their debut EP in 1996. All members are Christian, and it is evident in their lyrics ("I thought about Your love"; "I caught a glimpse of Your eye"), among countless other examples.

In 1997, Solid State Records got a hold of the EP, and signed blindside to a record deal. The first album, which was self-titled, was released to American audiences. In 1998, Tooth & Nail Records issued a new EP, titled Empty Box.

In 2000, A Thought Crushed My Mind was released. It was their final album for Solid State, after lackluster sales of the two albums. P.O.D. soon started endorsing blindside (actually, they were doing so since 1998) and signed them to Elektra Records under the imprint, 3 Points.

2002 saw the release of blindside's next album, Silence. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album.

Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. In late 2004, it was announced that blindside were leaving Elektra Records per the band's request.

In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004).

However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had.

First, their tour bus crashed, and was in disrepair, so they were forced to rent a van. Second, their last show in Bartlesville, OK had to be cancelled. They went in to a restaurant after their show in Dallas, TX, and when they came out, they found every thing in their rental van stolen, including their passports and whatever money they had. Its original title, Heavy Flow, was scrapped when it was noticed that fellow musician Moby had a song with the same name. However, the headlining tour was marred by a couple of incidents. The band's next album, Hefty Fine, is due for release some time during late 2004 to early 2005. blindside sold out five of the shows they headlined this Summer (2004). In 2003, the band released a DVD entitled One Fierce Beer Run, which chronicles their One Fierce Beer Coaster tour of 1997. Warriors are doing more than enough to help out. The album also featured a song about porn star Chasey Lain, and A Lapdance is So Much Better When the Stripper is Crying.

Thankfully the Blindside Union and P.O.D. Hooray for Boobies included the hit single "The Bad Touch" which featured the chorus "You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel." Due to its happy melody and instrumentation the song is one of the most played songs in German Adult contemporary radio stations. Therefore, the label couldn't support them anymore. "Fire Water Burn" became a major hit and enabled the band to record a successful follow-up, Hooray for Boobies in 2000. In 2003, the Warner Music Group was sold to private investors, and employees lost jobs as a result. The album was a flop and the group lost their record contract but then signed to Geffen and released 1996's One Fierce Beer Coaster.

The band formed in 1994 and released the Dingleberry Haze EP, then signed to Columbia Records for the full length debut, Use Your Fingers.

It has generated a minor hit in All of Us. A common theme in the band's lyrics are elaborate metaphors, similes and puns, such as "you came twice last year like a Sears catalogue," "like Times New Roman, you know the type." or "Like the Jim Jones cult, I'll take you out with one punch" Perhaps the group's best known hit is "Fire Water Burn" which contained the memorable and much reproduced chorus of "The roof/The roof/The roof is on fire/We don't need no water/Let the motherfucker burn/Burn motherfucker burn." In 2004 it was featured in the film Fahrenheit 9/11 anecdotally as a song popular with American soldiers fighting in Iraq. Then in 2004, About a Burning Fire was released. Known for humorous, obscene, and often offensive lyrics, the Bloodhound gang makes jokes about taboo subjects from race to child abductions and incest in bizarre, stream-of-consciousness hip-hop influenced lyrics. In 2003 they toured with Hoobastank in support of the album. Spanky G left in 1998. It generated minor hits in "Sleepwalking", "Pitiful", and "Caught a Glimpse". The group formed in 1994 (see 1994 in music) and currently consists of Jimmy Pop (born James Franks), DJ Q-Ball, Evil Jared Hasselhoff, Lüpüs Thünder and Willie the New Guy.
