Body Count is an American HardcorePunk and ThrashMetal band formed in Los Angeles in 1990. The group was founded by rapper Music/IceT. Ice-T founded the group out of his interest in heavy metal, and took on the role of vocalist for the group, writing the lyrics for most of the group's songs, while the music was written by Ice's high-school friend, lead guitarist Ernie C. The group's self-titled debut album was released on Creator/SireRecords in 1992.

The song "Cop Killer" was the subject of much controversy. Although Sire Records' parent company, Creator/WarnerBrosRecords, defended the single, Ice-T chose to remove the track from the album because he felt that the controversy had eclipsed the music itself. The group left Sire the following year.

After a partial hiatus that saw the group only release one album in seventeen years, in 2012, Body Count signed with Sumerian Records and released their fifth album ''Manslaughter'' in June 2014. After the ''Manslaughter'' tour ended, they signed with Century Media for their sixth album ''Bloodlust'', which was released in March 2017.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: Ice has admitted people tried to dissaude him from forming the band, but he ignored them and debuted Body Count on the first Lollapalooza tour, not telling anyone what he was going to do. Every show, he did half an hour of Ice T, then half an hour of Body Count, which started the band's buzz.
