4. House of Pain
Major Hit: "Jump Around" (1992)
Other Hit: "Shamrocks and Shenanigans" (1992)
House of Pain had infinitely more cred in hip-hop than most other white rappers (Everlast had been ushered into the game as part of Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate). So when "Jump Around" went to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, it wasn't like some random guys infiltrating the culture a la Vanilla Ice. Nor were they one-hit wonders. Although the sheer enormity of "Jump Around" may have obscured the fact, House of Pain hits like "Shamrocks & Shenanigans" as well as the title track to the Who's The Man soundtrack kept them on the charts. Since then all the group members have gone on to become successful individuallyâ€”Danny Boy as a streetwear aficionado, DJ Lethal as a member of Limp Bizkit, DJ Muggs as a producer, and Everlast as an alternative rock vocalist. One hit wonders? Nah.
