Crash Test Dummies first emerged in the late 1980s with music that was characterized by clever lyricism and elements of folk rock. The group achieved international success with the release of their second album, 1993’s God Shuffled His Feet. The albums success was backed by their wildly popular single “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm,” which became a worldwide Top Ten hit. By 1994, God Shuffled His Feet earned a multi-platinum certification and had also earned the group three Grammy nominations. Crash Test Dummies have released a total of nine studio albums over the course of their 30-year career. Lead vocalist Brad Roberts has cited XTC and Andy Patridge as his biggest influence. The band has often covered a handful of XTC’s material including the song “The Ballad of Peter Pumpkinhead” for the Dumb and Dumber soundtrack.
