Default RIP The Prodigys Keith Flint

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-47442312

The Prodigy star Keith Flint has died aged 49.

Instantly recognisable for his fluorescent spiked hair and incendiary performances, the musician sang lead vocals on both the band's number one singles, Breathe and Firestarter.

He was found dead at his home in Dunmow, Essex, on Monday morning.

The band, who were due to tour the US in May, confirmed his death in a statement, remembering Flint as a "true pioneer, innovator and legend".

In a post on The Prodigy's official Instagram account, bandmate Liam added: "I can't believe I'm saying this but our brother Keith took his own life over the weekend.

"I'm shell-shocked, angry, confused and heart broken."
****.

Damn. I listened to his music in high school. Pretty intense coming from my car stereo.

Enjoyed Breathe and Firestarter.

Also, TIL that the band is called The Prodigy and not just Prodigy.

Sucks to hear.

I was never a huge fan, but I have to give credit where credit is due. The Prodigy and Daft Punk were this suburbanite's first introduction into the world of electronic music, and for that, I am grateful.

I remember when they banned the Firestarter video in the UK cause it scared children lol....

Also it seems their most controversial vid for Smack My Bitch Up is only really on Vimeo by The Prodigy. Banning tune & awesome vid.

NSFW btw.

I remember some girls did a talent show dance to Smack My bitch Up, but they thought the line was "Take my picture". And so they danced around and everytime the lyric came they pretended to take pictures of each other in different poses.

I was the only one sitting in the audience who was like "omg what the **** is going on". Still laugh to this day they got that played in front of hundreds of kids/teachers.

No

The chorus line came from an Ultramagnetic MC's song called "Give the Drummer Some" where Kool Keith says "change my pitch up, smack my bitch up"
