There’s something truly special about Mindless Self Indulgence that brings fans from miles away to see the band every chance they get. The group’s predilection for anything-goes live shows, with livewire performances by band members Little Jimmy Urine, Kitty, Lyn Z and Steve, Righ? have won the group a devoted cult following.

Nearly as unrestrained as their performances, the quartet’s albums fuse trashy punk rock and driving electronic music for a sound recalls, at times, Queen, Marilyn Manson, Sex Pistols and even "Licensed To Ill"-era Beastie Boys. Sexy, funny and often dangerous, Mindless Self Indulgence has supported bands like System of a Down, Korn and Rammstein. Recently, MSI performed at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans with Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and Queens of the Stone Age, and headlined the Coachella Festival alongside Radiohead and the Cure back in 2004.

In March 2006, MSI presented fans with Straight To Video: The Remixes. The single debuted at #3 on the Billboard Hot Singles chart and remained in the top 5 for several months following. (The single landed at #7 for Billboard's Top 10 Singles for 2006 Chart.) Two tours ensued later that summer in which they sold out many venues including The Fillmore in San Francisco and the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. Almost a year later, STV is still on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart!
