History[edit]

Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch released their debut album, Music for the People on July 23, 1991. The album was a huge success for the group, making it to No. 1 on the Top Heatseekers chart and No. 21 on the Billboard 200. The album's success was fueled by two top-10 singles, both of which were certified gold, 'Good Vibrations', which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and 'Wildside' which went to No. 10 on the Hot 100. The album itself first went gold on November 15, 1991 before being certified platinum on January 14, 1992.

At the height of the group's success, they also had a video game released by Digital Pictures entitled Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch: Make My Video, but the game was not a success and has been considered one of the worst video games ever made.[1][2]

After the success of Music for the People, the group quickly recorded a follow-up entitled You Gotta Believe that was released on September 15, 1992. However, the album achieved little success, only making it as high as No. 67 on the Billboard 200, as did the album's lone charting single also titled 'You Gotta Believe' which went to 49 on the Hot 100. The group disbanded in 1993 with their last appearance being 'I Want You', which was featured on the Super Mario Bros. movie soundtrack.

After the group disbanded, Mark continued his music career by teaming with reggae musician Prince Ital Joe. The duo released two albums in Europe and had a No. 1 hit in Germany with 'United'. Mark continued to release music until retiring in 1998 and becoming a successful actor in the United States.
