Junkanoo stylings, pop sensibilities, and Caribbean feels fuse in this GRAMMY award-winning, multi-platinum family of nine hailing from the Bahamas. Approaching their 30th anniversary as a group, the Baha Men rode a massive wave of success in the early 2000s following the release of hit single, ‘Who Let the Dogs Out’. Featured in major motion pictures and chanted throughout sports stadiums around the globe, the Baha Men unleashed a revolutionary form of Caribbean pop that permeated American pop culture. The hit single would go on to earn the band several awards including a 2000 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording, as well as Billboard Music Awards for World Music Artist and Album of the Year. The group would also win a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award for Favorite Song the same year, then follow it up with another Kids Choice Award for Favorite Band in 2002. Their worldwide success also propelled them into the film industry, where they saw several of their songs featured in movies such as Miss Congeniality, Around the World in 80 Days, Garfield: The Movie, Men In Black II, and most notably, The Hangover. 2003 also saw their hit song ‘Best Years of Our Lives’ featured in the international hit, Shrek.
