Alternative Hip-Hop gets picked up in the mainstream

Flobots are an Alternative Hip Hop band from Denver, Colorado, formed in 2000. To date, they have released two albums (counting Onomatopoeia) and one EP. Flobots found mainstream success with its major label debut Fight with Tools (2007), featuring the single “Handlebars”, which became a popular hit on Modern Rock radio in April 2008.

“Handlebars”

Gotta give it up to this alternative hip-hop group for being on a major label (Universal Music Group) and focusing on real lyrics.  Support real hip-hop and not that bullshit on the radio!
