Crazy Town frontman Seth Binzer has died at the age of 49

The medical examiner has indicated that he died on June 24, 2024, but the cause is unclear.
Binzer, also known as Shifty Shelshuck, founded Crazy Town in 1995 with Brett Mazur. The band released their debut album The Gift of the Game in 1999.
At first he was unsuccessful. The band's prospects looked bleak, especially after they pulled out of Ozzfest in 2000 after Binzer was arrested for throwing a chair out of a window while intoxicated.
However, in the fall of 2000 they released a third single, Butterfly, which sampled the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Pretty Little Ditty. The song climbed the US charts and reached No. 1 the following year; in the UK also peaked at #3.
"Everybody loves Butterfly. The female audience loves it, and at the same time I think we kept our integrity with it," Binzer said in an interview years ago.
In 2002, they released a second album, Darkhorse, which failed to reach the same heights, causing the band to go on hiatus from 2003 to 2007.
In 2004, Binzer released a solo album, Happy Love Sick, under the pseudonym Shifty Shelshuck.
The group got together in 2007, and in 2015 released their third album, The Brimstone Sluggers, but it failed to enter the charts. After Mazur left the band in 2017, Binzer renamed it Crazy Town X and toured until 2023 | BGNES
