15 years ago today the #1 in the USA was Crazy Town with 'Butterfly'.
The track was the third single from their debut album 'The Gift of the Game' and proved an international breakthrough hit. The track would reach the #1 spot in the USA, Austria, Germany, Norway & Switzerland, whilst reaching the top five in Australia, the UK, Finland and New Zealand.
The track sampled the 1989 Red Hot Chili Pepper's track 'Pretty Little Ditty' with that oh-so memorable guitar riff throughout. Whilst the music video featured the band in a forest, with a tattooed topless Epic Mazur at the forefront.
As 'Butterfly' became their only international hit, Crazy Town live on as one of the most popular one-hit wonders of the noughties.
I heard this while out a few months ago and lost my mind in public wildly and animatedly singing the chorus. Maybe it's the guitar riff or the one listen chorus or the fact the rapped verses are actually so on point but this is a near perfect song. Hurt You So Bad was good too.
