Def Dames Dope (DDD) was a girl group from Belgium during the 1990s, most successful from 1993 to 1996. They released one more single in 2002.
The group was initially made up of the two sisters Larissa and Axana Ceulemans together with Yousra Lemaire (nicknamed TRS). Larissa married Berre Bergen (who played bass guitar with the Belgian band De Kreuners), and left the group. Ingrid Gerits (nicknamed H2O) and Edith Verlinden (nicknamed Tabasco) joined Def Dames Dope. Axana (nicknamed Snake) composed many of the lyrics and music, and the group was a project of Eurohouse producers Phil Wilde and Jean-Paul De Coster (better known for his project 2 Unlimited).
In the summer of 1993, the group held the number one position of the Belgium charts for 11 weeks and won the summer hit award from radio station Radio 2 with their song "Ain't Nothing To It". One of their notable lyrics included "Hey you, don't be silly, put a condom on your willy" from a 1994 single which made number 9 in the charts. Their first album sold gold.
In South Africa, the band was the opening act for a tour of La Toya Jackson. They made the charts in the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, France, Canada (three number one hits) and Israel.
Famous quotes containing the words dope and/or dames:
“I was once a shameless, full-time dope fiend.”
—Gus Van Sant, U.S. screenwriter and director, and Dan Yost. Bob Hughes (Matt Dillon)
“Justice was done, and the President of the Immortals, in Æschylean phrase, had ended his sport with Tess. And the dUrberville knights and dames slept on in their tombs unknowing. The two speechless gazers bent themselves down to the earth, as if in prayer, and remained thus a long time, absolutely motionless: the flag continued to wave silently. As soon as they had strength they arose, joined hands again, and went on.
—Thomas Hardy (18401928)
