Fun Music Information -> Prodigy

This is the most recent information about Prodigy that has been submitted to amIright. If we have more information about Prodigy, then we provide a link to the section where it appears (the actual page whenever possible).


Band Name Origins:

  • The word "prodigy" means to be endowed with exceptional or superior qualities. Obviously their superior ability is their music. I tend to agree with this and feel that it is a very fitting name... And just a note to all you ignorant, annoying grungers/goths/metlers/whatever you want to call yourselves, the prodigy are not a metal or grunge band! Are not, never have been, never will be! They will always be hardcore dance!!! Listen to some of their older songs! Submitted by: Alex
  • Nothing about SAT scores here. Liam Howlett ( Prodigy frontman) was a BIG analog synthesiser fan, and one of the earliest keyboards he had was a Moog Prodigy. Hence the name. Submitted by: EroXenos

Songs That Are Banned:

"Smack My Bitch Up"
Just when you thought the Prodigy had their controversial moment with Firestarter, out they come with a song that apparently promotes violence against women (although they say it's about doing things intensely, such as going for extreme manic energy onstage). When I saw the video for the first time, I didn't see anything explicit about it until the guy went to the strip club. Maybe I'm just unobservant.

"Smack My Bitch Up"
Techno band Prodigy find their new single, "Smack My Bitch Up" results in their CD, "The Fat Of The Land" being pulled from K-Mart and Wal-Mart shelves. The album had been out for almost six months, in 1997, before the single was released. Chain stores that had banned the record had themselves more than 150,000 copies of the record without receiving a single customer complaint.
