shot by the great Matty Labatique

*Also, here’s a FACT SHEET so as to dispel some of the misinformation out there in the world of internets:
-Eazy E died before ever hearing our version. We did our first version in ’98 and this one in 2000. Eric Wright died in ’95.
-Dr.Dre was a part of the process over at Universal/FarmClub with Jimmy Iovine (Interscope). Dre was supposed to make a cameo in the video to help us alleviate any potential tensions between us and the rap community that may not take kindly to our version. His appearance on the video fell through unfortunately. Probably would have hurt his rep. Gotta think big picture.
-Dr.Dre, Ice Cube and the estate of Eazy-E all get royalties from this version. They wrote the lyrics and we wrote the music/melody.
-We have never played the Grammys.
-We grew up listening to NWA, Eazy-E, The Ghetto Boys, Ice Cube, Cypress Hill, Disposable Heroes of Hipopracy, Blowfly, Ice-T, BioHazard, Onyx and D-Nice. We were kids from Texas who were fans of rap.
-We know we’re not hard or tough or gangster in any way, so we turned down every video idea that portrayed us as living out the lyrics to the song. We’re not trying to be Everlast, and would get eaten alive on the streets.
-“Dynamite Hack” is a Caddyshack (1980’s movie by Harold Ramis starring Chevy Chase and Bill Murray) reference to weed. The video is supposed to be a riff on the Caddyshack theme… with us cast as the rich, entitled, argyle sweater-wearing boobs. Hence the golfing and bad clothes.
-We are not The Gourds, Weezer, The Bloodhound Gang, Uncle Kracker or Wheatus
-We did not do the “Gin and Juice” cover. That was The Gourds…also from TX.
-We did a cover version of Ice Cube’s “Today Was A Good Day” on our first album “Pillowhead”. It’s more of a pop-punk version.
-If you LOVE this song, there is the strong possibility that you will not enjoy any of our other music. Our other songs are pop-punk and more recently a bit country. The new stuff will be a mixed bag of country-ish stylings and space rock. So, once again, if this song really does it for you then do not ever try to listen to any of our other music. Except maybe the new stuff. The new stuff is really badass. HTBUAB the album is also pretty killer.
-If you like rap and have no sense of humor, you will definitely not like this song.
-Coolio was mad for years about Weird Al’s “Amish Paradise”. But now he thinks it’s funny. He also likes the royalty checks.
-No one in the band has ever appeared on iCarly.
-We “appropriated” the look, dress and affectations of rich, country-club folks in Beverly Hills. Which is not a part of our people’s culture.
*How to Get Your comment removed: be super disrespectful to others on the message board or say hateful sh!t about Eazy. Talk all the trash you want about us, but keep the rest of your venom to yourself. I also might delete exceptional hurtful things about us. I’m not made of stone.
