• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

no reason to live but we like it that way


"Like my scrotum, here it is in a nutshell!"


Formed in 1991 in Pennsylvania, the Bloodhound Gang are a rap/metal group; although they originally began doing hip-hop, they evolved into a more traditional rock band format while still retaining a DJ. Their style tends to be a little all-over-the-map as a result, but it's tied together by their lyrics. Usually considered more of a comedy band than anything, the Bloodhound Gang specialize in off-color humor, dick jokes and many, many, many puns.

Their Discography includes:
  • Dingleberry Haze (1994)
  • Use Your Fingers (1995)
  • One Fierce Beer Coaster (1996)
  • Hooray For Boobies (1999)
  • Hefty Fine (2005)
  • Fishin' For Hookers (to be released in 2012)

Bloodhound Gang provides examples of the following tropes:
  • Album Title Drop: The hidden track from Hooray For Boobies sees two opera singers do just that.
  • Anti-Love Song: "No Hard Feelings" is pretty cold.
  • Ballad of X: "The Ballad of Chasey Lain".
  • Boastful Rap: "The Inevitable Return Of The Great White Dope" is a great example of Jimmy Pop's unique talents in this field.
    • Completely averted in many, many of their self-deprecating songs.
  • Brick Joke: "I Hope You Die" gets a great one in.

I hope you flip some guy the bird,
He cuts you off and you're forced to swerve
In front of the Beatles' tour bus
A Bookmobile and a Mack truck...

    • It goes downhill from there. And sure enough, in the last verse...

And when you finally regain consciousness,
You're bound and gagged in a wedding dress,
And the prison guard looks the other way,
'Cause he's the guy you flipped the bird the other day!

  • Contemptible Cover: Hefty Fine, which has a naked obese man.
  • Cover Version: They revived Run DMC's "It's Tricky" for the rap-metal era.
    • They also did a punk rock version of "Along Comes Mary" by The Association.
    • And they vastly improved 'Weekend' by Scooter.
    • They also covered the theme song for Kids Incorporated in a punk rock theme on Use Your Fingers, the same album that saw a similar rendition of Kim Wilde's "Kids In America."
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Double Entendre: Some of their lyrics may as well be single entendres.
  • Fag Hag: 'I Wish I Was Queer So I Could Get Chicks'
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" was played on the radio pretty regularly for a while.
  • Greatest Hits Album: Show Us Your Hits.
  • Hurricane of Puns: Any of their songs ("Times New Roman, you know the type!").
  • Intercourse with You: Their dance songs are infamous for this, notably "The Bad Touch."
  • Joisey: They are not fans.
  • Listing Cities: "Going Nowhere Slow," until the addendum: "But nowhere in New Jersey, that's the only place we won't go!"
  • Loony Fan: "The Ballad of Chasey Lain", about a fan of said porn star which eventually kidnaps her as she doesn't reply his letter.
  • Madness Mantra: "THE DRUMMER FROM DEF LEPPARD'S ONLY GOT ONE ARM!!" is screamed several times on "Why's Everybody Always Picking On Me?" It's as weird as it sounds.
  • Motor Mouth: Jimmy Pop is capable of some serious tongue-twisters.
  • Prison Rape / Black Comedy Rape: From "I Hope You Die":

"I hope he grins like Jack Nicholson/And forces you to play a game called "Balls On Chin"/And whatever happens next is all a blur/But you remember "fist" can be a verb..."


"Yeah, well I sing like an amputee, though."
"Cuz... can't hold a note. Can't carry a tune."

    • Nearly every song has some insulting reference to Jimmy Pop, or the narrator of the song.
  • Signature Song: "The Bad Touch".
  • Stupid Statement Dance Mix: "Ralph Wiggum," made up entirely of Ralph Wiggum quotes. And one Chief Wiggum quote. And Yvan eht nioj!
  • Take That:
    • "Did you like the movie Malcolm X?" (On a list of why you should kill yourself.)
    • The song The Ten Coolest Things About New Jersey, which is absolute silence.
      • "Were you born and raised in New Jersey?" (on the previously mentioned song listing reasons to kill yourself.)
  • Take That, Critics!: "Shut Up," which is also a Take That towards... well, everything that moves.
    • "I hate Spin Magazine, 'cause they never ever plug me."
  • Three Minutes of Writhing: The video for "Screwing You On The Beach At Night," although the bikini girl's antics are completely offset by Jimmy Pop being... well, Jimmy Pop. The video is actually a parody of the infamous "Wicked Game" video by Chris Isaak.
  • Toilet Humour
  • Two Hit Wonder
  • Unusual Euphemism: The lyrics to "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo" are mostly a string of... inventive euphemisms for male and female genitals.
  • Wildlife Commentary Spoof: "The Bad Touch" begins with a sample from one such commentary, discussing "the act of mating."
