Untitled[edit]

Is it worth mentioning Des Bishop's attempts to translate "Jump Around" into Irish? Renny Barrett (talk) 05:32, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Of course it is. JohanK (talk) 23:41, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Sources for that: Offaly Express Bray People Irish Independent. --candlewicke 01:25, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Name[edit]

How did the group decide upon the name "House of Pain"? Funnyhat (talk) 04:23, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

  • According to the Rise to fame section, it was taken from the book The Island of Doctor Moreau. This currently needs a citation and here's information that might help. There's a video in which Danny Boy plays the song No Spill Blood by Oingo Boingo (which is based on H. G. Wells' novel, and mentions the Moreau's 'House of Pain'). Danny Boy explains he was at a concert of Oingo Boingo and that band was misbehaving by staying on stage longer than was allowed. They said something like 'We might end up in the House of Pain.' In this case jail, but also a reference to Moreau's 'House of Pain' from the novel (where his operating table was). --82.171.70.54 (talk) 15:35, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Amy Winehouse ?[edit]

Can we get support for the assertion that Amy Winehouse sampled the Jump Around baseline for her song You Know That I'm No Good ?

Succesful solo carreer?[edit]

In the timeline section it said something about "after a succesful solo carreer, Everlast launched House of Pain". I deleted that first part, it makes no sense. He had only released one solo album at the time, which was a commercial failure. All his other albums were released *after* the major succes period of House of Pain. In the Everlast article it says this:

"Emerging as a member of the Rhyme Syndicate, Everlast's first solo album Forever Everlasting (1990), largely made possible by MC Ice T, was a disappointment commercially. Following the album's failure, Everlast teamed up with DJ Lethal and high school friend Danny Boy to form House of Pain."

By the way, the anyonymous edit (see history) is mine, I made the edit before I logged in, sorry. Greetings. RagingR2 (talk) 14:19, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
