 "Don't quote me, boy": Dynamite Hack covers NWA's "Boyz-N-The-Hood" Popular Music and Society - ...
In 2000, Dynamite Hack, a white indie-rock band, covered NWA's "Boyz-N-The-Hood." Hack's cover complicates earlier assertions that rap songs cannot be covered, and it speaks to histories of white artist covers of fl RandB groups in the 1950s, as well as 1970s punk covers and their parody of rock performance.
I argue that Dynamite Hack is careful not to parody hip hop, and that instead the group uses the gangsta imagery of NWA's lyrics to parody their own whiteness its distance from hip hop credibility.
Twelve years later, I heard Dynamite Hack's cover of NWA's song "Boyz-N-The-Hood." I was teaching writing in a computer classroom at the University of Louisville, and a student found the song on Napster, the new high-tech version of the dubbed cassette passed in the hallway.

 Rolling Stone : Dynamite Hack: Superfast : Music Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The catchiest tune on this Austin quartet's debut is the one that Dynamite Hack have grafted onto a Third Eye Blind-style cover of Eazy-E's gangsta standard "Boyz-N-the Hood." The song plays up the suburban-power fantasy that N.W.A partly became.
It's a cute idea, if also pretty tasteless -- lines like "I grabbed the stupid bitch by her nappy-ass weave" aren't improved by the fact that Dynamite Hack are snickering at them -- and radio stations that would never dream of playing actual hip-hop are pumping it.
But leading with a novelty cover screams "one-hit wonder," and, anyway, Sissy Bar's singalong version of "Gin and Juice" beat these guys to the joke five years ago.

Dynamite Hack : Superfast - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Dynamite Hack occupies that well-trodden segment of punky post-grunge rock in which bands can't decide whether to concentrate on smirky novelty humor or more introspective songs about collegiate romantic angst.
Accordingly, their debut album Superfast is about evenly divided between these two wildly contrasting tones, sometimes mixing them in the same song.

It's been a while since I've heard a song that completely hooked me, and that's what "Anyway" did.
It should have been a hit long before the now cliched "Boyz-in-da-hood." I really think Dynamite Hack never really got their shot since their number one single was a cutesy rap cover.
I know I wrote them off as soon as I heard it.
