Bruno Munk London (born June 5, 1975), better known as Jimmy London, is a Brazilian musician, lead singer and co-founder of the hardcore punk band Matanza. In addition to his musical career, he was also the host of Pimp My Ride Brasil and the voice of "Fornalha", a character in the cartoon The Jorges, both appearing on MTV Brasil. He has also acted as a record producer, including the EP of garage rock band De'la Roque, whose drummer, Jonas, also plays in Matanza.

Controversy[edit]

He earned a reputation for having an explosive temper after two distinct incidents. In the first, he had a misunderstanding which nearly turned into a fight with the lead singer of NX Zero, Di Ferrero, at a football match. In the second, he got into an argument with the hosts of the program Rockgol, Paulo Bonfá e Marco Bianchi, live on national TV. This was viewed by some as a possible marketing ploy designed to promote Pimp My Ride Brasil, which he hosted.[1][2]
