The Bloodhound Gang
Then: 1999 was the year that Tom Green's "Lonely Swedish (The Bum Bum Song)" went to number one on MTV's TRL, showing that America was ready to embrace the silliest of novelty songs. They had another chance that summer, when the Bloodhound Gang released "The Bad Touch" from an LP titled Hooray for Boobies. If the title doesn't ring a bell, the chorus probably will: "You and me, baby, ain't nothing but mammals/So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel."
Now: The goofball group never matched the success of "The Bad Touch," but they've lasted a lot longer than anyone thought. While their most recent album came out seven years ago, they've managed to hold onto a fan base in Europe – where they landed in hot water after allegedly urinating on one another onstage in 2006. The band is reportedly working on a new album.
