HOUSE OF PAIN
A one-hit-wonder to some, a trend-setter to others.
1992, a new breed of hiphop was in full effect in America, bringing all nations together. Along with CYPRESS HILL and FUNKDOOBIEST ...HOUSE OF PAIN are not just typical West-Coast posses.
After the gangsta-rap craze of the late-80s-to-early-90s, a fresh movement was taking place. Less violent, no guns, but still plenty of hooks to kill. Some of these acts even teamed-up with metal-bands on the audacious project for the 1993 Judgment Night movie-soundtrack. Another rocknroll milestone that no-one tough could've been possible a couple years earlier ...thank you ANTHRAX & PUBLIC ENEMY !
After HOUSE OF PAIN, mainman Erik Schrody, known to the world as Everlast went solo, went country and went Platinum ...talk about being a true 360° artist !
Later in 2006, the story heats-up again as a reunion under the new name, the heavier LA COKA NOSTRA, picks-up some more street creds.
...put on your shit-kickers and kick some !
