FORMED: 1990, Braintree, Essex, England

The most successful holdover from the early-'90s rave/hardcore scene, the Prodigy initially scored with the 1991 U.K. hit "Charly" and became one of the decade's best-selling dance acts with a string of hit singles. Organized and fronted by Liam Howlett, the group also recorded acclaimed album works and toured the LPs with a stunning live show, which approximated the incendiary spirit of a rave better than any Techno act.

Howlett (b. 1971), the prodigy behind the group's name, was classically trained on the piano while growing up in Braintree, Essex. Later, he began listening to rap and DJed with the hip-hop act Cut to Kill before moving on to Acid-house in the late '80s. His first production, the EP What Evil Lurks, became a major mover on the fledgling rave scene. After Howlett met up with dancers Keith Flint and Leeroy Thornhill (both Essex natives as well), the trio formed the Prodigy in late 1990. The group gained a contract with XL Records and re-released What Evil Lurks in February 1991.

Six months later, Howlett issued his second single "Charly," built around a sample from a children's public-service announcement. It hit number one on the British dance charts, and then crossed over to the pop charts, stalling only at number three. "Charly" also spawned the copycat craze that launched the Smart E's "Sesame Street," one of the first rave singles to chart in America. Two additional Prodigy singles, "Everybody in the Place" and "Fire/Jericho," charted in the U.K. during late 1991 and early 1992.
