"Renegade" from the album New World Orphans


While California-based hardcore pioneers (hed) p.e. have enjoyed successful albums, and even registered a Top 30 Modern Rock single, they are now embraced as one of the top underground acts on the independent scene.
“When I first started making records, I was mostly writing party music, and some subject matter with social commentary,” says frontman Jared, referring to his ... Read more in Amazon's (Hed) Pe Store

Editorial Reviews

From a band worthy of worship by Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Papa Roach fans, (hed)'s second album is a dozen-song collection that's personal, versatile, and eminently listenable. Much of Broke's dark yet surprisingly melodic and memorable charm lies in the portentous and chaotic musical climate the band creates. The well-crafted tunes explore a gamut of styles within the loosely defined hip-hop/metal genre, moving from the primal groove of "Killing Time" to the lively, Van Halen-inspired "Feel Good." The sextet includes a turntablist in DJ Product c. 1969, plus two guitarists, allowing the lineup to create a massive sound rife with subtle textures. From the psychotic vocals of "Pac Bell" to the epic rock chorus and hip-hop verses of "Bartender," (hed) seamlessly weave close-to-the-bone angst with commensurate musicality. This on-the-rise Orange Country band have definitely delivered the goods with this one. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars I'M BROKEN August 22, 2000
By Dahruma
Format:Audio CD
ive been listening to this cd for about two monthes now because a friend of mine hooked me up and its a pretty damn good sophomore release,not quite as good as the first but its definatley still hed (planet earth) theres no doubt about that.mcud uses his voice with alot more range displaying his vocal ability better than on the first which is very evident on such tracks as feel good (with serj from SOAD and morgan from kittie singing together in the chorus) where mcud goes from a really laid back style of rapping into a furious scream or on pac bell where he sings in the most demented tone ive ever heard him use.also on crazy legs they do a cover of the chorus from hypnotize,an old notorious big song with a twist on it in the traditional hed pe flavor.hopefully this will get hed a little more exposure and recognition because they deserve it alot more than some other bands who recieve more coverage,but i know this cd wont go unnoticed or ignored because its too good for that.if you liked hed pe's last cd or just like rapcore then i definately recommend this to you and also be on the look out for linkin park,a good upcoming rapcore band-later

1.0 out of 5 stars Censored? Are you serious? September 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Note: This review is for the censored MP3 album.

Broke by (hed) P.E. is a fantastic album. That's why I bought it and downloaded the MP3 version from Amazon. Unfortunately what Amazon doesn't tell you is that this version is CENSORED. And I don't mean it's a cleaned up version. They literally just blanked out all parts of the songs where there is cursing. So that means some songs cannot be listened to because so much of them is cut out. In my opinion that makes this otherwise wonderful album completely worthless.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is As Good As A Mix In Rap Rock You'll Find March 7, 2001
By Calvin
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this cd "Broke" because I liked Hed (pe)'s self-titled first album. I origianally purchased the first album due to recomendations by friends and after seeing them perform live.
I must explain I am not a big fan of rap music or mixes of rap n' metal. But this cd rocks. Plenty of variance throughout the album. Hed (pe) has a formula that is not only entertaining, but sounds great. The music is metal in nature, the voice is in the rap-like styling. But it is not simply a series of bad rhymes set to metal. The singer does have a true voice and can sing, croon, and growl. All of which will visit your ears.
I cannot help but like this band. The guitars can be heavy, but not overflowing. The bass is very distinct and ambiguous. There are some very interesting bass lines keeping rhythum. The drums are at best average, but they keep the beat.
The highlight tracks are the opener Killing Time, Feel Good, Swan Dive, and the filthy and antagonizing Crazy Legs. Some of the songs were written obviously for concert situations, and lose some of thier luster recorded.
There is not much in the way of ground-breaking going on here in this gangstermetal mix, but they do much better than most. Fans of Korn should be pleased, aggresive fans of rap should be pleased, but if you can not stand the idea of rap/hiphop influences in music then stay far away.
Believe it or not this is worth your time and your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A flash of brilliance October 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Oh yes - this is the good stuff! A much more focused effort compared to their debut with some great arrangements, terrific sounds, excellent vocals and unique beats - what else could a white, middle-class, self-confessed metal-head want?! (hed) really came into their own with this album. What I particularly like are the computerised beats and sudden flourishes of human drumming over the top - really creative and, if I can get away with saying this, showing something akin to what Peter Gabriel did live with Manu Katche on the Secret World Tour. The two songs on Broke I'm referring to here are `Pac Bell' and `Jesus (of Nazareth)'. Everyone goes on about the song `Bartender', but I don't rate it as high as some other stuff on here. I can't really fault any of the tunes on `Broke' but I do particularly like `Killing Time', `Boom', `Swan Dive', `Stevie' and `Jesus'. The thing I've learned most to admire about this band is Mawk's sparse basslines. Most players would lace these songs with monstrous riffs, but his playing shows some damn fine maturity. I'd recommend this album to anyone because it's not overly obtuse, and it showcases a band that is top of their tree. To be honest, I don't think much else compares in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars diverse strong and relatively intelligent November 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Was completely blown away by Hed's second record (selftitled) which was extremely intelligently written, pushing the heavy/rap into a clever and diverse way and having a dramatically powerful vocal presense at all times.

At the time Broke came at first I was a little dissapointed as the sound had changed but that soon gave way to appreciation that they had gone for something a bit more diverse than before - not quite as far as say Mr. Bungle type diverse but more in that direction than the previous album - which is a lot more conventional. For me are a few time lyrically they lose the integrity of the first record but are still a lot of songs where they hang onto it.

Probably their strongest record between self titled and back to base X, definitely worth a shot if you liked those two and better than the others in the middle.

Stand out tracks for me are: "Waiting to die" Hard and Fast
"Little Stevie" clever sense of music, great timing and nearly captures the same sort of power as their classic remix of Darkie off selftitled
"I got you" greatly passionate power song with great Chorus
"feel good" apart from having Serj on it it's a clever piece of music
and a few others - generally it's really good - only negative really is the incredible record before
