WOLFPAC's musical flavor is hard, energetic, and straight up in your face. They kick it old-school hip-hop style blending beats with a mix of hard-core and metal samples tempered with over the top lyrics that are far from the same old subject matter of the regurgitated rap of today. The hard-hitting group unfurls sundry uncanny topics, from coming back from the dead to exact revenge upon those that have wronged you, to never backing down in a fight

WOLFPAC's origins stem from the Philadelphia area's BloodHound Gang, the group whose massive-selling independent release "Dingleberry Haze" earned them a major label bidding war. After landing a deal with Columbia Records, this wacky troop released "Use Your Fingers", which went on to sell almost 250,000 copies nationwide. After their second album's release, one of the founding members, Daddy Long Legs, left the BloodHound Gang and went on to concoct WOLFPAC.
Soon after "Somthin Wicked This Way Comes", WOLFPAC's debut album released on Chord Records sold out fast to the tune of 15,000 copies without the help or confines of a major label. Instead of a million-dollar promotion push, WOLFPAC focused its growth on building a underground grass roots following, developed through word-of-mouth, touring, the internet, and storming the likes of the "Howard Stern Show" eventually making a fan of Stern himself! Aside from winning over the King of All Media, WOLFPAC have several other notches under their belts like sponsorships from Jagermeister, Crunk Energy Drink and Piecemaker Gear while touring internationally with acts such as Insane Clown Posse, Slipknot, Twiztid, GWAR, and many more.
As for WOLFPAC live, their name is just a hint to how their performance goes far beyond mere music. Their shows are highly interactive, with the MC's in the midst of the mosh pit as often as on stage and their fans are nearly as vocal as the members themselves. "Our fans are like our family," Daddy says adding, "If you're the kind of person who can relate to our music you're the kind of person who can relate to us on a personal level!" Once described as the "Wu-Tang Clan meets the Misfits on crack", WOLFPAC's unconventional approach has found appeal with a fan base that draws from many different walks of life as well as many different demographics. "It's very fresh," Daddy says, adding, "Its all one big dysfunctional family all bound by a common tie, music! After all, isn't that the way its is supposed to be?"
In an age where the music industry as it was is all but extinct, independent artists like WOLFPAC have risen from the ashes of the now barely relevant major labels to enjoy the spoils of their hard work and never-say-die attitude. Never depending upon the support of the mainstream music industry machine, WOLFPAC is the quintessential square peg - not fitting neatly into any label or category. Instead, the crew has broken down the walls to bring its diehard fans unforgettable songs and a live show that is one of the most energetic and unpredictable going today.
WOLFPAC's origins can be traced back to 1996, when the group was founded by Daddy Long Legs, right after he parted ways with the Bloodhound Gang - a highly successful group he started with longtime friend Jimmy Pop. The pair split lead vocals on the Bloodhound Gang's debut EP, "Dingleberry Haze" (1994, Cheese Factory Records), and on its major label full-length offering, "Use Your Fingers" (1995, Columbia Records). With Bloodhound Gang, Daddy toured with Sugar Ray, Lordz Of Brooklyn, Deftones and 2 Skinnee J's. A year later, Daddy Long Legs conceptualized and founded WOLFPAC as a brand new project and a perfect creative outlet for the dark and twisted sense of humor that's very much a part of his lyrical forte. The group played early shows in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania and surrounding states. They've shared bills with Slipknot, Kottonmouth Kings and GWAR. And for many years now, they've toured with longtime friends and associates the Insane Clown Posse and Twiztid. Their touring repertoire is not just limited to the States as WOLFPAC as had great success touring both Japan and the UK with sites on conquering the world some time in the near future. In addition to touring with ICP, Twiztid and other Psychopathic Records artists, WOLFPAC has become a staple of the label's annual Gathering of the Juggalos and continue to produce their long running streaming program The WOLFPAC Super Deluxe Fun Time Variety Show on Facebook Watch!
WOLFPAC concerts have been highly controversial - especially to PMRC types who'd like to censor any and all forms of free expression. Shows have been shut down by the authorities a handful of times, and WOLFPAC is constantly raising the bar - over the years incorporating fire, staple guns, masked men patrolling moshpits in riot gear, and strippers to enhance the in-concert experience. They were the only band to be removed from the stage by police at the Chicago Expo of the Extreme. And their appearance on "Opie & Anthony" - the infamous "Black Wednesday Episode" - is quite possibly the only show to ever be banned in the history of satellite radio. The episode featured comedian Jim Norton, a Jagermeister Tap Machine, and the Girls Of WOLFPAC doing things too extreme to pass even the most open-minded and lenient censors.
WOLFPAC and their ever-evolving sound and performance return continue to bring their "A" game and continue to kick off yet another new and exciting era, let the games begin!
