Music: Urban Dance Squad

Urban Dance Squad is a Rap Rock band. Or rather, the Rap Rock band, having been formed in 1986 and influencing nearly every band that has had anything to do with the genre (Rage Against the Machine, in particular, took a great deal from their sound, and The Beastie Boys toured with them in support of Check Your Head). This Dutch band released its debut album in 1989. Over the course of five studio albums, a live album and a singles collection, UDS continued to play with Heavy Metal, Hip Hop, Reggae, Funk, Jazz and Ska, producing many Ear Worms and classic Rap Rock tracks. The band broke up in 2000, and despite earning higher amounts of critical acclaim than most Rap Rock bands, they never had much mainstream success. They briefly reunited in 2006.
