House of Pain is an American hip hop group who released three albums in the 1990s before lead rapper Everlast left to pursue his solo career again. The group's name is a reference to the H.G. Wells novel The Island of Dr. Moreau, a reference carried further by the naming of their 2011 tour 'He Who Breaks the Law'. The group is best known for its 1992 hit single 'Jump Around', which reached number 3 in the United States, number 6 in Ireland and number 8 in the United Kingdom. The group broke up in 1996 but reformed in 2010 as House of Pain, after the trio had been members of supergroup La Coka Nostra for several years. Everlast teamed up with DJ Lethal and high school friend Danny Boy to form House of Pain.
