Fun Lovin’ Criminals
New York City, New York, United States
Fun Lovin' Criminals is a band from New York City. Their musical style is eclectic, covering styles such as hip hop, rock, blues, jazz, soul, punk, and funk. They are best known for their hit "Scooby Snacks", which features samples from films by Quentin Tarantino, and the song "Love Unlimited", which recalls Barry White's backing vocal group. Their songs often focus on life in New York City, as well as urban life in general. Their lyrics can be gritty or existentialist in nature, touching on topics such as organized crime and urban violence, but they are just as often humorous or satirical. According to Huey Morgan, the band has sold approximately 10 million albums worldwide. The band gained a large following internationally, notably in north-west Europe, around the release of their first two albums in the late 1990s.
