He has also gained over one million views on his YouTube channel for his highly controversial music videos for “Meet The Monstors“, “The Naughty List” and A Dirty Fuckin Murder“, Which was also featured on the TV show Law & Order” in the episode “Steel Eyed Death“. KidCrusher made a cameo appearance on the show acting as “The Axis Of Death“, the episode was loosely based on the Farmvile Murders/Richard McCroskey who was actually a fan of KidCrusher in real life. According to the episode, KidCrushers music influenced McCroskey to murder. The episode was reviewed by The New York Times as well as Fangoria Magazine. The lyrics of Horrorcore music are purely fantasy. The goal is to use the social medium of music to paint a fictional picture of horror the same way an author writes a horror novel or a director makes a horror movie. The fictional story that KC tells through his music is that of a mentally ill, cannibalistic serial killer who dawns the persona of a clown. KidCrusher does NOT commit, condone or advocate ANY of the actions made by the character in his music.
