Fun Biography

'Fun Lovin' Criminals (often referred to by their acronym, FLC') is an American-British alternative hip hop / alternative rock group from New York City. Their musical style is primarily eclectic, covering styles such as hip hop, rock, funk, blues and jazz. Their songs often deal with life in New York City, as well as urban life in general. As a band, they cover such issues as organized crime, recreational drug use, violence, poverty and politics. Their songs are often gritty or existentialist in nature, but are just as often humorous or satirical. They are best known for their hit "Scooby Snacks" which features samples from films by Quentin Tarantino, as well as the song "Love Unlimited", which serves as a comical tribute to Barry White (and shares its name with White's backing vocal group). According to Huey Morgan they sold approximately 10 million albums worldwide. The band gained a large following internationally, notably in northwest Europe, around the release of their first two albums in the late nineties.
