About White Trash

Early-'90s rockers White Trash never quite fit into any sort of genre, which eventually sunk their career during the alternative rock explosion of 1992. Initially labeled as a hair metal band, they actually cultivated a sound that fit somewhere between Nazareth and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This funk rock style caught on for a short time, giving bands like Mind Funk and Atom Seed a short period of popularity among the metal community. But it was this same genre jumping that confounded listeners when bands like the Chili Peppers actually erupted into the mainstream. Listeners were already being turned off by the stale hair metal scene, and despite the momentary success upon their arrival, soon White Trash was dropped from their label with only one album, an eponymous release in 1991. The band kept going, even contributing the theme song to MTV's John Stewart Show in 1993. But they never did quite reach any more success, releasing material under independent labels until 1994 when they disappeared from the music scene altogether. ~ Bradley Torreano
