Author Existence Failure: Ice-T and Ernie C. are the only two of the five original members still living (Mooseman was killed in a drive-by shooting, while Beatmaster V and D-Roc both died of cancer).
Award Snub: Body Count was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Metal Performance" in 2018 for the song "Black Hoodie". Like with many past awards, name recognition would usually play a huge part as many metalheads predicted that Body Count would earn the Grammy solely because Ice-T is the band's frontman. Unfortunately, that was not the case as Mastodon won the award instead.
Creator Backlash: Ice-T wasn't too happy with how Murder for Hire turned out, saying that it was rushed out the door. No tracks from the album have been played live since its release.
Ensemble Dark Horse: While they aren't near-universally respected like, say Iron Maiden or Slayer, they are quite a bit more popular among metalheads than one might expect.
