2004, a man going by the name Steev Mike hacked into Andrew W.K.'s website claiming that he helped create the Andrew W.K.
persona as well as a lot of the music and was angry about not being part of W.K.'s third album. Messages began appearing on
the site that insulted visitors as well as tried to besmirch Andrew W.K.'s reputation. Andrew W.K. went on to say he had previously
used the name Steev Mike and that Steev Mike was a group of people credited as a producer on I Get Wet. Andrew W.K. continues
to insist that his persona is real but that the whole Steev Mike controversy could lead to a truth more disturbing than people
might expect and he cannot reveal the names of those involved.
