Arguably the first multi-platinum hip-hop song, “Rapper’s Delight” is seen by many as the beginnings of what was then predicted by the industry to be a short-lived “fad” genre. Phish more or less performed the song with Kid Rock in Vegas on 9/29/00, with Fishman contributing a largely improvised verse on his knees about the Kid’s firm member. (Don’t ask…)
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
