Having gotten their start in 1993, Stuck Mojo was always an easy target for criticism, if not for their use of fusion of metal and rap -- "overdue" or "generic" were the most common jabs -- and even bigotry from those unable to accept their African-American frontman Bonz. Regardless of the negative or demeaning heckles when they first started in their home base of Atlanta, GA, Stuck Mojo continued on and eventually scored a deal with Century Media Records in 1994. With the accompaniment of guitarist Rich Ward, Corey Lowery on bass, and Bud Fontsere on drums, the release of Snappin' Necks debuted in 1995 with a plethora of touring to follow within the next year. Hitting the road with such acts as Machine Head and Slapshot, Stuck Mojo found their new living quarters in the (dis)comfort of their rented van. With this constant living on the road in full effect, 1996's Violated EP, followed by their second album, Pigwalk, helped fuel this lifestyle. Come 1998 without the problem of having to go out and get a real job or an apartment, Stuck Mojo released their third album, Rising, which vividly themes the group's second favorite passion outside of going on tour: wrestling. HVY1 followed a year later, and in mid-2000 Stuck Mojo returned with Declaration of a Headhunter. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi
