The Crazy Town lead singer passed away on Monday.

As this outlet reported, the singer, real name Seth Binzer, was found dead on Monday at his Los Angeles home. While Shellshock's cause of death is not known as toxicology reports usually take 8-10 weeks, he famously struggled with substance abuse.

His drug of choice was cocaine when he appeared on reality shows like Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House.

His past also included a scary health battle and brushes with the law. In 2012, Shellshock fell into a coma and was hospitalized but pulled through.

The singer was arrested in 2011 for outstanding warrants following a domestic incident with his girlfriend. Shellshock was busted just last year for driving under the influence in South Carolina.
