Boone retained the name and recruited four veteran musicians for a new Rehab. Now a quintet with Boone as the lone singer/rapper -- and also using his birth name, Danny Alexander -- Rehab signed with Arshid Entertainment
and released the ambitious Graffiti the World in 2005. Over the next few years, a cut from their debut album, "Sittin' at a Bar," would turn into a jukebox favorite. The Epic
label got wise, re-releasing their debut album and renaming it Sittin' at a Bar, all without the band's permission. To fight this unauthorized reissue, the band re-recorded its now famous drinking song and renamed it "Bartender Song." This version would end up on a 2008 version of Graffiti the World released by the major label Universal
. Rehab stuck with Universal
for their 2010 album, Welcome Home.
In 2012, Rehab struck a deal with Average Joe's Entertainment
, which soon released their fourth album, Gullible's Travels. The group toured in support, but after the release of the single "Whore" in 2013, things went quiet in the Rehab camp, and in 2014 the band announced that it was breaking up, staging a final tour for its fans. The members of the group announced they would focus on their solo careers, but in 2015 Steaknife dropped hints on social media that he and Danny Boone were planning to record new Rehab material. While new music didn't immediately surface, in 2017 Rehab brought out Million Dollar Mugshot, a collection of previously unreleased studio material from the original group, featuring guest appearances from Bubba Sparxxx
, Ritzz, and Uncle Mike. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
