Music Video Fridays - The Bloodhound Gang

I guess that I am feeling a bit like a teenager, because I re-watched a bunch of Bloodhound Gang videos the other night and damn if they still don't crack me up. No accounting for maturity on this here blog.

Like a lot of folks, the first time I encountered The Bloodhound Gang was in 1996 and their second album "One Fierce Beer Coaster". A friend of mine introduced me to it and we cracked up to the lyrics in "Fire Water Burn". Be warned...the video is a bit NSFW.

"I'm not black like Barry White, no I am white like Frank Black is"

After 1996, they kinda disappeared for a while. But they were back in 2000 with their biggest hit and their best album. The album was "Hooray for Boobies" and the hit was "The Bad Touch". Great song and even better video. I'm positive you've heard this one.

"Love...the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket"

The last video is from their last album in 2005 called "Hefty Fine". "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" busts on the boy band videos that seemingly ruled the airwaves for a little while. The album, by the way, also had a song called "Ralph Wiggum". That makes me laugh a little. Anyway, the embedding of this video has been disabled on Youtube, so I am going to attempt to embed the video directly from MTV.com. That'll learn 'em.

"Put the you know what in the you know where"

UPDATE: FUCK! That didn't work either. Just go here to watch it. Crap. Can anyone tell me why Youtube disables the embedding on some videos but not on others? Anyone? Bueller?

That's enough silliness for today. Have a great weekend.

WLC - Nah...just a nice wholesome song. They say right in it that they don't wanna beat around the bush. ;)

Slyde said...

i havent heard of these guys in a long while....

p.s. turning embedding off is the choice of the poster.

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - so it has nothing to do with the record company or the artist? Really? Because some artists have ALL of their videos disabled for embedding. I dunno man. Maybe the poster is contacted to either disable the embedding or have their privileges taken away. Something like that. I just don't understand it. If it's already on Youtube, you should be able to embed it.

I remember the CD art for "Hooray for Boobies."

It was a Boobie.

B.E. Earl said...

Ookami - appropriately.

Disabled embedding is the sign of an asshole. Use Mozilla Firefox & download helper.

B.E. Earl said...

Heff - I use Firfox already, but the videos are disabled on Youtube itself. Nothing to do with the browser.

The drummer for Def Leopard's only got one arm!

B.E. Earl said...

DG - NICE! The embedding is disabled on that one too or else I would post it here.

The Bloodhound Gang is the flippin' best!

Dr Zibbs said...

I love their fire water burn song.

B.E. Earl said...

Paige - they are an acquired taste, I believe.

Zibbs - that's the first video up there. Whatcha reading this from your phone or something? ;)

Jimmy Bastard said...

I could quite happily listen to these fellas.

Bloodhound Gang is pretty cool. Jimmy Pop is pretty damn funny on some of the interviews I've seen him on.

"Fire Water Burn" is a great song.
