“Me and Shifty got into a little scuffle, but it’s all good. We’re brothers.”
Crazy Town’s recent gig in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, became a crazy town after co-vocalists Seth Binzer (aka Shifty Shellshock) and Bobby Reeves landed blows into each other on Sunday night.
According to TMZ, the fight began after Binzer didn’t arrive to perform at the concert until after the show ended.
Consequence Of Sound reports that Reeves apparently forgot the words to the group’s chart-topping hit, Butterfly, and later in the show, expressed his disappointment with his co-vocalist, telling the audience, “I’m so mad at fuckin’ Shifty right now.”
Reeves showed off his black eye in the below footage shared with TMZ – he’s bruised and swollen, and in another video captured on YouTube, the two trade sucker punches and further blows before someone else breaks up the fight.

Reeves later posted to his Instagram stories, “Me and Shifty got into a little scuffle, but it’s all good. We’re brothers.”
Crazy Town’s close sources told TMZ that the fight happened as soon as the group went off the stage.
In 2012, Binzer addressed his experiences with addiction. A source close to him said at the time, “Seth has completely changed his life around and has checked into a highly regarded drug and alcohol treatment center [sic] where he will be working with them to restructure his life over the next 2 years.”
Crazy Town toured across Australia in December 2019. The US rap-rock outfit put on shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, The Gift Of Game.
While the album sold over one million copies in the United States alone, Butterfly proved to be Crazy Town’s biggest hit following its release in 2000 and hit #1 in multiple countries across the globe.
