    (1989- )
    Formed by music teacher Michael Monagan and his class of special education students at Widney High School, Los Angeles
    Albums include 'Special Music from Special Kids' (1989), 'Let's Get Busy' (1999) and 'Act Your Age' (2004)
    Original kids were Carl Brown, Tommy Yates, Norman Williams, Gerardo Reyes, Nancy Preston, Keisha Dotson, John Insinna, Diane Reyes, Jerron Crook, Robert Ross, Brenda Garcia and Phomma Vannasang
    It's hard to view their act as anything but a novelty.
    Some people have accused their act of being exploitation.
    For many people, their music can be unsettling to listen to.
    Some of the lyrics these kids write are unintentionally morbid and upsetting.
    Whether or not you feel guilty about it, it's hard to listen to them without laughing the first few times around.
    Remarkable changes in the students' behavior and self-esteem were reported after recording the original album in 1989.
    The kids write and perform all of their own material.
    Michael Monagan continues running the project, including recording and touring, as students come and go.
    They are signed to ex-Faith No More frontman Mike Patton's record label, Ipecac.
    If you have a twisted sense of humor, they can be good comic relief.
    They are viewed as good role-models to other disabled children.
    'Special Music from Special Kids' was targeted at children and special education teachers, but has become a classic among novelty music collectors.
