After two albums under the moniker Mariachi El Bronx, Los Angeles punks the Bronx are back with riotous riffs and howling, shout-along choruses on their fourth self-titled LP, which will hit shelves February 5th on ATO. If you can't wait to rock out till then, you can take an exclusive first listen to The Bronx (IV) right now. Kicking off with the pummeling "The Unholy Hand," the Bronx refuses to relent, unleashing hook after earworm hook on tracks like adolescent anthem "Youth Wasted," the powerfully subdued "Torches" and scorched-earth closer "Last Revelation."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
