(həd) Planet Earth is a Punk Rock band from Huntington Beach, California. Their style of music, dubbed "G-Punk", draws mainly from Punk Rock and Hip Hop, touching upon Hardcore Punk, Reggae, and occasionally Funk, Jazz and Heavy Metal.Their lyrical subject matter is quite diverse, ranging from some of the more frivolous subject matter of Gangsta Rap (pot smoking, sex, etc.) to more political topics. Vocalist Jared is also heavily interested in conspiracy theories, like government cover-up of alien life, the Illuminati, etc.; because of this, Hed PE is often overlooked or downright condemned, despite the diversity of their music.Members:note The band has had manyline-up changes over the years; this list may or may not be the current line-up.
Tribal Face Paint: Often worn by Jared since the band's formation, this has recently extended to the rest of the band, especially when playing for Juggalo audiences, and comes into play heavily on some music videos, like "Here And Now".
Arc Number: The band often refers to the year 2012, and draws lyrical themes from various theories surrounding the year.
Intercourse with You: Quite a few of Hed's songs are about this. And not in a subtle or metaphorical way, either. "Work On This", for example, contains a female vocalist singing the lyric "I don't wanna love you, I just wanna fuck you".
Bonus Material: Each of their albums has bonus tracks on international releases, usually on the Japanese editions. New World Orphans was originally released in three different versions, each containing unique bonus tracks; when it was reissued on iTunes, its only bonus track was the single "Here And Now". Fans who preordered Truth Rising received a Skull and Bonus CD, which contained exclusive songs, remixes and an interview with Jared in which he discussed the 9/11 Truth Movement.
Their self-titled album contains one dubbed "Tits, Clits and Bong Hits" by fans
Broke has some studio outtakes
Insomnia has audio of a newsreport involving an explosion at a THC extraction lab operated by then-Methods of Mayhem leader and former Hed PE member Tim Murray. The most revealing part of the audio is when the reporter specifies that manufacturing marijuana is more illegal than selling or possessing it.
