Keith is the creator of a style he refers to as "Pornocore", and also claims to be the creator of {{Horrorcore}}. TheProdigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" is built around an altered sample of Keith's voice from the Ultramagnetic [=MC=]s song "Give the Drummer Some" (The original lyrics were: "Switch up change my pitch up / Smack my bitch up like a pimp"), and he returned the favour by guesting on the track "Diesel Power". Keith also appeared in a few Sprite commercials. However, despite all of this, he is still largely underground, because most of his music is too strange for mainstream audiences.

* BlackSheepHit: ''Dr. Octagonecologyst''.



* CreatorBacklash: As the result of the popularity of his album ''Dr. Octagonecologyst'', Keith created Dr. Dooom, and released the album ''First Come, First Served'', in which Dr. Octagon is killed by Dooom, a serial killer with a fondness for pet rats and Flintstones chewables. Keith later decided to bring Dr. Octagon back, but was unsatisfied with the final result, ''The Return of Dr. Octagon'', and brought Dooom back for ''Dr. Dooom 2''.

Keith first gained notice as a member of the HipHop group Ultramagnetic [=MC=]s, which formed in 1984. Although praised for his lyrics, his contributions to the group's songs were not particularly weird, especially compared to Keith's solo albums. Keith has also been a member of the Analog Brothers (with IceT), Masters of Illusion, Thee Undatakerz (a {{Horrorcore}} group) and The Clayborne Family.

Kool Keith, real name Keith Thornton, is known for a number of things, including his skills as a lyricist and rapper, the fact that he has more aliases than any other rapper in the industry, and, finally, that a lot of his songs are fucking weird.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Sex Style'' was something of this as a way of scaring off the white hipsters who had taken to ''Dr. Octagonecologyst''; when ''that'' didn't take, he made ''First Come, First Served'' and the Dr. Dooom persona as a way of creating the hardest, most hipster-unfriendly album he could think of.
