Body Count

  • Who Body Count Is: the ferocious and fearless breakneck thrash-metal band fronted by gangsta-rap pioneer Ice-T
  • Its Legacy: it jumpstarted the rap-metal movement and stirred up national controversy in the process due to Ice-T’s brazen lyrics
  • How Brazen: “Cop Killer” stoked the collective ire of Charleston Heston, Dan Quayle, Tipper Gore, and President George H.W. Bush
  • The Irony: Ice-T has now made a career out of playing a cop on Law & Order: SVU
  • Your First Body Count Experience: on Ice-T’s 1991 hip-hop game-changer, O.G. Original Gangsta, when the band hijacked the record at track 18 with its headbanging theme song
  • Your Next Body Count Experience: seeing Ice-T bellow, howl, and pummel his mic live while co-founder Ernie C strips the varnish off his guitar with shredding solos
  • Tracks to Expect: favorites such as “There Goes the Neighborhood” and tracks from the latest album, Manslaughter
  • Why Get There Early: to see Suffocation, Stray from the Path, and Tension heat up the stage until you can fry an egg on it

The venue buzzes with a true rock 'n' roll vibe, beaming with a nocturnal color scheme decorated with whimsical local art and exposed brick walls.
