Though they achieved only moderate success in their homeland, The Outhere Brothers clocked up two big hits in Europe with "Don't Stop (Wiggle Wiggle)
" and "Boom Boom Boom." Both contained tween-friendly eurodance instrumentation and catchy hooks but lyrically they were lewd songs about sex, which provoked a lot of complaints from angry parents.

by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh. "We are very sexual in our songs. The sexual side of us is what everybody sees what music portrays. All of our songs reflect things that we, all friends close to us, have done and things that have been done to us."
