Benjamin Scott "Ben" Folds (born September 12, 1966) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and the former frontman of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five. He now performs as a solo artist and collaborates with many other musicians.

"Rockin' the Suburbs" is a song by Ben Folds on the album of the same name. It is Ben Folds' biggest solo hit so far, gaining radio and MTV airplay (though "Landed" and "Bitches Ain't Shit" achieved higher chart positions on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., this was mostly due to their popularity on the iTunes Music Store rather than radio airplay). It was written by Ben Folds as an attack on Nu metal and the aggressive, plaintive nature of this style of music. Limp Bizkit and Korn seem to be the main bands that are attacked in this video, due to their hypocritical brooding nature. In concerts Folds has stated that if Stevie Wonder could write happy songs in the 1960s as a blind, black man, then nĂ¼-metal bands have no right to complain about their white, suburban existence in their music.
