Music for the Jilted Generation

The Prodigy

The Prodigy are an English electronic dance music band formed in Braintree, Essex, in 1990 by producer, keyboard player and songwriter Liam Howlett. “Music for the Jilted Generation” is the second studio album by the Prodigy. The album was first released in July 1994 by XL Recordings in the United Kingdom and by Mute Records in the United States. The album is largely a response to the corruption of the rave scene in Britain by its mainstream status as well as Great Britain’s Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, which criminalised raves and parts of rave culture. Now this unique music is preserved for future generations so that they can listen to what was “on” in 1994.
