Regretting The Past: Crazy Town – The Gift Of Game

I don’t know what game this is but it sounds disgusting.

Crazy Town is an American rap rock band, formed in 1995 by Bret Mazur and Seth Binzer. Crazy Town is best known for their 2000 hit single, “Butterfly“, which reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and helped their debut album, The Gift of Game (1999) sell over 1.5 million units. Their follow-up album, Darkhorse (2002) failed to achieve the same level of success, contributing to the band’s break-up in 2003. Mazur and Binzer reformed the band in 2007, and released their third album, The Brimstone Sluggers, in 2015. In 2017 Mazur left the band and Binzer changed the name of the band to Crazy Town X.

The Gift of Game is the first album by Los Angeles band Crazy Town. It was released on November 9, 1999 in the U.S. by Columbia Records. The album yielded the band its biggest hit to date with “Butterfly” which reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on March 24, 2001.  Worldwide the album sold more than 2.5 million units, with more than 1.5 million in the US alone.
