De Party Animals (drie gabbers en een hippie) waren voor het eerst te zien in de videoclip bij I Wanna Be A Hippy van Technohead. Producers Jeroen Flamman en Jeff 'Abraxas' Porter bouwden er een act omheen, en werden zo pioniers van de kortstondige Happy Hardcore-rage midden jaren '90.

Met hun eerste drie singles (Have You Ever Been Mellow, Hava Naquila en Aquarius) weten ze in 1996 op nummer één te komen in de Top 40. Een unicum voor een Nederlandse act.

In 1997 volgen nog twee top 10-hits met We Like To Party en Atomic, maar daarna is het grote succes snel over.

Flamman en Abraxas blijven in de jaren na het succes optreden met de Party Animals, met steeds wisselende 'gabbers' op het podium.

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain

I lived a life that's full
I travelled each and ev'ry highway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Regrets, I had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it all and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
I did all that
And may I say nothing yet
I did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill; my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say - not in a shy way
Oh no, no no not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of the one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
And did it my way

I faced it all and I stood tall
I did it my way
And did it my way!
