 +'''Lords of Acid''' is a [[Belgium|Belgian]] [[acid house]] band from the 1990s that started as a spinoff of [[Praga Khan]] with the controversial [[New Beat]] single "[[I Sit on Acid]]" in 1988. Created by [[Jade 4U]], [[Praga Khan]], and [[Oliver Adams]]; their debut album, 1991's ''[[Lust (album)|Lust]]'' (along with additional [[single (music)|singles]] "Rough Sex" and "I Must Increase My Bust"), became famous within the [[electronic music]] and [[dance music]] communities for their outrageously [[Human sexuality|sexual]] [[lyrics]] and sound [[sampling (music)|samples]] - perhaps their most popular song, "I Sit on Acid", begins with the [[a cappella]] lyrics "Darling, come here / fuck me up the…" only to be interrupted with a grinding rave beat. Their second album was ''[[Voodoo-U]]'', which featured a more [[industrial music|industrial]] sound. This was followed by ''[[Our Little Secret]]'' (1997), ''[[Heaven Is an Orgasm]]'' (1998) and ''[[Expand Your Head]]'' (1999). In 2000 they released a more [[Rock and roll|rock]]-influenced album entitled ''[[Farstucker]]'' and in 2003, after being in the business for fifteen years, released a greatest hits album called ''[[Greatest T*ts]]''. Their fans formed an online community called Children of Acid.

-'''Praga Khan''' (real name: [[Maurice Engelen]]) is an early [[techno music]] [[musician]]. His [[Belgian]] [[New Beat]] style stems back to the 1980s when techno came out of the [[Belgian underground]]. Praga Khan teamed up with [[Jade 4U]] and [[Oliver Adams]] to form [[Lords of Acid]] (also known as "Digital Orgasm") in the late 1980s. Praga Khan's most famous [[solo (music)|solo]] work is the rave anthem "Injected with a Poison".
