Mindless Self Indulgence
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.
