Violate This: 10 Years of Rarities 1991-2001
Released: 2001, Century Media
I was under the impression that Stuck Mojo was history, but it seems they are "on indefinite hiatus" as they all indulge in other projects (Slick Speed / Fozzy / 420 Monks). I've never been a big Stuck Mojo fan, liked a few songs here and there, but never a full release. But you gotta give credit where credit is due as Stuck Mojo have paid their dues. They combined traditional metal with rap looooong before it became popular and developed a 'scene' of sorts. VIOLATE THIS is a collection of unreleased tracks, rarities, demos, alternate versions and covers (MAIDEN'S "Wrathchild" and the CRUE"S "Shout At The Devil") that haven't been made available until now. Could be seen as a move by a band who likes to give something back to the fans, or a move by the record company to get a little more mileage out of a band that's done. You be the judge.
