L.A. duo Redfoo and SkyBlu, otherwise known as LMFAO, have announced that they won’t be going near your ears in the foreseeable future. The announcement came early this morning, when Redfoo broke the news that LMFAO are taking a break to pursue individual interests. “I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years,” he told news.com.au. “And we’re kind of like saying, well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time.” Redfoo added that he and SkyBlu were headed in “different directions” and didn’t know when (or if?) the pair would ever reunite musically.

The uncle and nephew team first began performing together in 2006, releasing their debut album Party Rock in 2009, which scored a nomination for Best Dance/Electronica Album in the following year’s Grammy Awards. But it wasn’t until last year that the pair broke through with Party Rock Anthem from their second album Sorry for Party Rocking (read the in-depth ITM review here), the release also spawning your jam of the decade Sexy And I Know It. From there, the duo went about spreading the “party rock mission”, touring with our own Stereosonic in 2011 and attracting the attention of Santigold.

But all’s not lost for LMFAO devotees, as Redfoo also revealed that he has plans to release a fashion line and launch a solo career. “All the music that I’m going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish,” he assured. “I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”

Good riddance. Terrible music anyway. But if I had to guess, the one with the 'fro and stupid glasses actually saw himself in a mirror one morning and said, "WTF is wrong with me?"

I am surprised that so many of you were forced to listen to their music. It's the only logical explanation for anyone to be happy over news like this. If you didn't like their music, then it should simply not matter.

Gotta admit I'm kind of disappointed.. not a fan of rap, but I do like going out dancing, and their songs are more funny/silly than most.
I tend to listen to classic rock or metal, though, normally. I guess I'm saying maybe I like "party music" better than "gangsta rap" for the club scene.

Anyway, guess we'll see what they do next.

...
Five or six years is long for a band/group? Tell that to... well any rock band from the 60s/70s/80s/early 90s, some still going today. Think they would have quite a chuckle in your face.
