Win BODY COUNT's New DVD 'Smoke Out Festival'!

Eagle Rock Entertainment, the leading independent source for high quality music audio/visual programming, will release 'Smoke Out Presents: Body Count', a DVD presentation of a rare live performance from legendary rapper Ice-T’s hardcore punk-thrash metal band. Body Count appeared for San Bernardino’s Smoke Out Festival in 2003, in the wake of the worst fires in California history.

Ice-T, who is also known for his work as an actor, including his role on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU,” was already one of the most famous rappers in America when, in 1992, he unveiled Body Count. The band was his tribute to punk/metal bands like Motorhead and Suicidal Tendencies. Almost immediately following the release of their debut, Body Count was denounced by President George H.W. Bush and then-NRA chairman Charlton Heston due to the self-evident sentiments of the song “Cop Killer.” During that election year, Ice’s record label, Sire, severed all ties to the rapper. Shot in high definition and recorded in Stereo with 5.1 Surround Sound, the dvd runs 60 minutes and lists for $11.98. Body Count’s Smoke Out appearance is incendiary despite technical problems and an unsympathetic stage crew. The crowd goes bananas when the band (and Ice’s son Lil’ Ice) launches into “Cop Killer” like it’s 1992 all over again.

'Smoke Out Presents: Body Count' will be released into stores on October 4.
