Biography

The Thunderkatz are the best thing to happen to music since stereo systems went hi-fi. This group is exactly what the music industry has been looking for. A band with an exciting edge of your seat sound, capturing the "Teen Spirit" Nirvana beautifully brought to life. Similar to the combination of feel good vibes that the smash, Outkast song "Hey Ya" moved the whole world with... this is what the Thunderkatz sound like. A fun loving, explosive version of today's American culture.
The Thunderkatz are a mix between superstar rock band Greenday and N.E.R.D. It could be said the band's diverse, universal sound is the bastard child of hip-hop's irreverence, R&B's smoothness, the improvisation of jazz and the pureness of rock. Just like the cartoon characters, the Thunderkatz have joined together to start kicking ass and taking names with their debut album "Don't Let The Rollie Fool U", scheduled for release on Wall Street Entertainment. As soon as people hear their infectious single "Pop Lock" it's over. The Thunderkatz are destined to be the next big thing!!!
With their strong personalities and individual quirks, the Thunderkatz name iconic sixties group The Monkee's as their closest musical peers. That goofiness and open minded attitude towards life and music is what gives the group that extra OOMPH!!! The members of the group are: XO, softly killing the keyboard, jUnO murders the Skins with power and grace, Benjive drops the bottom on the Bass with smooth lines, Just Jon the ultimate guitar afficianado, Levelz the hypest hypeman/back vocals, and finally Dell aka 080 putting it down as MC/lead singer. They are all producers and pop culture connoisseurs. 080, the lead singer explains it best; my MC name, 080 stands for a zip code in the south New Jersey suburbs. We want to show that there is no stereotypical black music. Thunderkatz represent a new counter culture. The Thunderkatz have worked with everyone from Seven Aurealis (Ashanti and Murder Inc.), Lady Patra, Poster Boy, Sire Castro, Tony Sunshine (Terror Squad) and Star Trak (N.E.R.D). Writers, musicians, producers, engineers, Thunderkatz do it all.
No longer do music fans have to toggle between classic rock stations at lunch, Top 40 at drive time and the hip-hop station at night, you can find it all wrapped up in one with the Thunderkatz. o8o says that besides making music to move the asses of the masses their mission is, "To show that hip-hop is the new rock that really rocks".

Pop Lock Lyrics

Written By: Dell Harris

(Verse 1)
She Came Straight off the cover of a magazine
She told me she wasn’t down for the late night creep
I told her no worries girl
Cuz I’m not really that fly
I’m an alcoholic poser loser dope headed guy

Oh girl forget about me
You can do it with out me
Sky is the limit
Push like a blender
And get from round me

Im really down as it goes
Doing 20-dollar shows
Cuz I ain’t Sh__
So forget it cuz…
Everybody knows

(Chorus)
Pop Pop Lock Shake
Pop Pop Lock Shake
Pop Pop Lock Shake
Pop Pop Lock Shake

(Verse 2)
She told me love wasn’t something that you just give up
I told her sorry but my truck wasn’t big enough
For The egos and the games
Cuz my friends are really lame
They just sit around and think about the things they never
DID

Oh girl I beg your pardon
You rock like Dolly Pardon
Maybe we could get this cracking
Our actions spread like gardens

I don’t wanna come of fly
I just wanna get you high
Maybe you can be my girl and
I CAN BE YOUR GUY

(Solo)
(Chorus)
(Outro)
Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yea Yeah

Now Now
Now Now
Now Now Now
We’re gonna make it Now
Now
Now Now
Now Now Now
We’re gonna make it Now
