MÚSICA6: MÚSICA DEL SIGLO XX: THE BAD TOUCH. BLOODHOUND GANG. The Bloodhound Gang es una banda estadounidense de Rock comico. La base de sus canciones es, principalmente, el humor. Fue fundada en Quakertown, Pennsylvania, en 1992 por Jimmy Pop y Daddy Long Legs. "The Bad Touch" is the first single by the Bloodhound Gang off their 1999 album Hooray for Boobies. It was released in 1999 internationally and, a year later, in the U.S. and UK. The song was also remixed by God Lives Underwater and Eiffel 65. The music is based on the Pet Shop Boys song "In the Night"[citation needed] (the B-side of the "Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)" single from the album Please), and was supposedly written in 1986 by then-fourteen-year-old Jimmy Pop, despite the song’s reference to The X-Files, which premiered in 1993. Like much of the Bloodhound Gang’s other music, the song contains a wide variety of sexual colloquialisms.

"The Bad Touch" is the first single by the Bloodhound Gang off their 1999 album Hooray for Boobies. It was released in 1999 internationally and, a year later, in the U.S. and UK. The song was also remixed by God Lives Underwater and Eiffel 65. The music is based on the Pet Shop Boys song "In the Night"[citation needed] (the B-side of the "Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)" single from the album Please), and was supposedly written in 1986 by then-fourteen-year-old Jimmy Pop, despite the song’s reference to The X-Files, which premiered in 1993.

Like much of the Bloodhound Gang’s other music, the song contains a wide variety of sexual colloquialisms.

The sleeve for the single features a photo of two zebras in sexual intercourse.

[edit] Music video

The song’s video, shot during the summer of 1999, features the band dressed in "MonkeyRat" costumes with oversized ears, in various locations in Paris (including the Place de l’Estrapade, Avenue de Saxe, and Champ de Mars), and the Eiffel Tower is visible in many shots. During the video, the band uses blowguns to shoot tranquilizer darts into the buttocks of four passing young women who are dressed in black with short skirts and stockings, then carrying them away. They then use a fishing rod to dangle a croissant in front of a group of French chefs, enticing them to follow. The band members dance around for a few seconds and then lure three chefs into following them. The band members swallow several mealworms, before finding two stereotypically effeminate gay men in a café, who are then beaten over the head with baguettes and knocked unconscious. A dwarf mime artist (Peter Dinklage) is captured in a net and then thrown into a cage with the four women, three chefs and the gay couple in a clear parody of animal collectors capturing frightened specimens. The band leap around the cage taunting their captives. As the song draws to an end, the prisoners are released and all dance together in formation in the street. The mime artist escapes and is run over by a speeding Renault 5 car driven by Lüpüs Thünder.

The uncensored version of the video shows the band playing with and eating a brown semi-liquid food, with the implication that it is feces, and a beginning which features them feigning sex in a doggystyle position rather than dancing as in the clean version. The violent capture of the gay couple is also missing from some versions.

The video reached #11 on MuchMusic’s 50 Most Controversial Videos for references to zoophilia, furry fandom, sexual lyrics, insulting French people, gay people and chefs.
