    My sister bought Fat of the Land when she was 13, when I was 11, and I fell in love with it. I remember listening to it over and over again on a road trip my parents took from Wisconsin to Georgia.

    I'm listening to it again today. Stands up. Breathe makes me want to play Mortal Kombat 3 for some reason.

    RIP...he was a true icon in electronic music. Without The Prodigy I doubt you see acts like Excision, Bassnectar, etc. They made it possible for electronic music generated by a DJ/producer to have a menacing, aggressive edge.

    Between this and Luke Perry, today sucks.

    I'm lucky enough to have seen this band many times live, the amount of energy Keith Flint puts into every performance is nothing short of incredible. A damn shame and a great loss, will definitely be spinning Fat of the Land in his honour.

    Terrible news. RIP Keith. Music for the Jilted Generation was my first introduction to any kind of dance music and that album still blows my mind (thanks dad).

    I've had the privilege of seeing them twice in my life and both times rank in my top 5 shows of all time. And such a huge part of what made them so rad was Keith just being his bonkers self. RIP dude, hope you start a fucking hell of fire wherever you go next.
