The BossHoss is a band from Berlin which started in 2004 with Country & Western style cover versions of famous pop, rock and hip hop songs, for example "Hot in Herre" by Nelly, "Toxic" by Britney Spears and "Hey Ya!" by Outkast. They incorporate stereotypical American cowboy behavior into their act; they wear Stetson hats, tank tops and large sunglasses, display whiskey bottles, and yell "yeehaw". The band refers to their music style as "Country Trash Punk Rock."

The band was formed in 2004 in Berlin by Alec "Boss“ Völkel, Sascha "Hoss“ Vollmer and Michel Frick  and named after the song "The Real BossHoss" by The Sonics. They were featured in the trendsetting music show Tracks (on the French/German TV channel ARTE) and played live during the Kiel Week. In late 2004 they signed a record deal with Universal Music Domestic Division.

In 2005 they released their debut album "Internashville Urban Hymns" and a promotional contract with the ice cream producer Langnese, for which they covered "Like Ice in the Sunshine", the theme song from a Langnese's TV spot. The band played about 180 concerts that year. In 2005 they adapted "Ca plane pour moi" from the Belgian artist Plastic Bertrand.

In 2006 BossHoss provided the soundtrack for the football movie "FC Venus".  Release of the first single "I Say A Little Prayer" on April 28 and the second album "Rodeo Radio" on May 19. Half of that second album were their own songs, the other half cover versions. After they had released that second album, their first album rose into the charts again, sold 100,000 copies by the end of May 2006, and became a gold record in Germany. BossHoss played a lot of concerts[quantify] in Germany and at summer festivals all over Europe.
