About Mindless Self Indulgence

Punk, industrial, hip-hop, electronic music—over-the-top synth-punk outfit Mindless Self Indulgence is influenced by everything and sounds like no one else.

∙ Frontman Jimmy Urine explored various styles before he formed the band in 1997 after completing a manic cover of Method Man’s “Bring the Pain” that crystalized his eclectic creative vision.
Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy, Mindless Self Indulgence’s 2000 sophomore LP, featured cover art from Gorillaz illustrator Jamie Hewlett.
∙ Building on the momentum of their outrageous shows, the band found chart success with 2005’s You’ll Rebel to Anything, which hit No. 4 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart.
∙ The group’s 2008 LP, If, reached No. 27 on the Billboard 200, and three singles from the album topped the publication’s Dance Singles Sales chart.
∙ In 2018, Urine—operating under his last name, Euringer—dropped his self-titled solo debut, which featured guest spots from Grimes and My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way.
∙ The debut album from Fuktronic—a long-brewing, gangster-themed multimedia collaboration between Urine and System of a Down’s Serj Tankian—was released in 2020.
