Binzer met fellow Crazy Town front-man Bret Mazur in 1992; they started collaborating under the name "The Brimstone Sluggers". By early 1999, they formed the group Crazy Town. In 2000 Crazy Town was signed to tour with Ozzfest, however they were forced to withdraw after only two weeks when Binzer was arrested after he threw a chair through a window while he was drunk.
The band's single Butterfly reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, prompting sales of their debut album, The Gift of Game, to exceed 1.5 million.
Their 2002 follow-up album, Darkhorse, was a commercial failure by comparison, and the band broke up shortly after its release. During Crazy Town's hiatus, Binzer released his first solo album, Happy Love Sick, in 2004. Crazy Town announced they had reformed in 2007, and performed live for the first time in five years in August 2009. They are currently working on a third album.
Binzer is currently fronting the group "Shifty and The Big Shots". They released their first single, "Save Me", on July 6, 2010
