Remember Big Audio Dynamite?
Big Audio Dynamite, or BAD, almost defies category. This is a group that can rock when it wants to, funk when it needs to, and go reggae just for the hell of it. Don't go telling Big Audio Dynamite what to do or lead singer Mick Jones, formerly of The Clash, will beat your ass. BAD pioneered the rock-meets-hiphop sound before Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit made it wallpaper. Check out songs like "Medicine Show" and Sightsee "MC." Twenty-five years after the release of their first album, Big Audio Dynamite still packs a wallop. BOOM!
