Superfast is a studio album by the rock band Dynamite Hack, released in 2000.[6][7]

The album peaked at No. 84 on the Billboard 200.[8]


The album was produced by David Eaton. A remixed version of the "Boyz-N-The-Hood" cover appears on the album, after Dr. Dre asked the band to remove certain words.[9]

Critical reception[edit]

The Austin Chronicle called the album "supersheeny corporate punk."[10] The Los Angeles Times wrote: "Call ‘em Blink-91—a cut-rate, half-price take on Blink-182’s melodic power-punk, minus the puerile wit and deceptively smart commentary (in other words, the character)."[2] Texas Monthly deemed the album "the smartest power pop to break out of Texas in years."[11] Style Weekly wrote that "bubble-gum punk, pseudo-rap, and watered-down 'alternative' rock are all present."[12] The Morning Call considered it "slightly above-average pop-punk that plays with dynamics more than usual, though not enough to transcend the overdone and tired genre."[13]

The Village Voice chose the band's cover of "Boyz-N-The-Hood" as the 46th worst song of the 2000s.[14]
