Boy Hits Car is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, United States, which was formed in 1993.[2]


The band was formed in 1993. After releasing their first album, My Animal, independently in 1998, they went on the Sno-Core Tour and recorded their next album, Boy Hits Car, on Wind-up Records.[2] Their song "LoveFuryPassionEnergy" was used as a theme song for WWE Hall of Famer Lita and was distributed on the WWF Forceable Entry album in 2002.[3] A third album was self released in 2005 called The Passage. In 2006 the band re-released the album in July after signing with Rock Ridge Music as their distributor.

Musical style[edit]

Although initially aimed at the nu/alternative metal market, the band have since moved onto a lighter sound on recent albums and is going more for a pop sound. Each member of the band adds their own style to the mix.[5] The band cite their influences as Jane's Addiction, Primus, Bad Religion, Talking Heads, Quicksand, Led Zeppelin and Helmet, as well as eastern music such as Ali Akbar Khan.[6]
