Hot Action Cop is an American alternative rock band.
The group released their self-titled debut album on Atlantic Records in 2003. Rob Werthner (vocalist/songwriter/frontman) formed the band back in the 1990s with bassist Luis Espaillat and drummer Kory Knipp. With many musical influences (including the Bloodhound Gang, Eminem, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Limp Bizkit), he came up with plenty of songs with funky beats and lyrics about sex.
The name of the band comes from the irreverent nickname that Werthner gave the boyfriend of his ex-girlfriend after she and Werthner broke up in the early ’90s. He was an NYPD officer with a feathery out-of-date haircut.
Their song ‘Fever for the Flava’ was featured on the soundtrack of a few films, most notably the American Wedding and Grind soundtracks (as well as appearing in episodes of the shows King of the Hill and The Man Show); a version with custom lyrics (about cars instead of sex) appeared in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2.
