Basehead is an AlternativeRock and AlternativeHipHop group from Washington, D.C. usually comprised of Michael Ivey and whoever he can get to play with him. Ivey's 1992 release as Basehead, ''Play With Toys'', was recorded by Ivey, who played the guitars, sung and contributed skit vocals on the album, and any musician friend that happened to drop by his house, contributing other instruments and DJ scratching. The album, whose lyrics focused on subjects ranging from [[TheAlcoholic drinking]] and [[TheStoner pot smoking]] to heartbreak, politics and philosophy and [[AllMenArePerverts sex]], was critically acclaimed and a cult hit, and soon after became a full-on band, which included DJ Clarence Greenwood, who would later switch his turntables for a guitar and found a successful solo career as Citizen Cope. The band's [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly open-ended style]] gave them tours with bands like Music/BeastieBoys, Music/StoneTemplePilots, and Music/{{Ween}}.

After ''Not in Kansas Anymore'', Ivey became a born-again [[UsefulNotes/Christianity Christian]], and beginning with the album ''Faith'', Basehead began transforming into a ChristianRock band, and the change was solidified with the release of ''In The Name Of Jesus'' in 1998. Over the years, however, the band has once again become a little more secular, although Christian themes still exist in Ivey's lyrics. Ivey himself was never too happy with the Christian music market, and had qualms with being termed a Christian himself, due to his disagreements with other Christians.
