Background Story

The Fat of the Land might have the most energetic intro ever, given that the first track of the album is Smack My Bitch Up. I still remember the exact moment I heard them live and the beat of this track basically knocked us out.

The Fat of the Land is the third studio album by The Prodigy. The album was released by XL Recordings on 30 June 1997.
