I love this band...seriously.



OK GO
OK Go is an American indie rock band from Chicago best known for their singles “Get Over It”, “A Million Ways” and “Here It Goes Again.” OK Go consists of Damian Kulash (guitar, vocals), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar), Andy Ross (guitar), and Dan Konopka (drums). They play rock music, with influences such as Cheap Trick, T. Rex and Queen. They share management with They Might Be Giants, with whom they toured before signing to Capitol Records. They served as the house band to the public radio program This American Life on the show’s fifth anniversary tour. Ira Glass, the show’s host, wrote their first official bio, calling them “living catnip” and describing their songs as “part indie rock, part stadium rock, part straight up pop with the occasional whiff of Pixies or The Cars or Elliott Smith.”

In the United Kingdom, “Get Over It”, from their self-titled debut album, appeared at No. 21 in the singles chart on March 16, 2003, and the band performed it on that week’s edition of Top of the Pops. Also that week, the single’s video was named video of the week by Q Magazine. The single was also featured in EA Sports video games Triple Play Baseball and Madden NFL 2003 in 2002.

The band contributed a cover of “This Will Be Our Year,” the Zombies classic, as the lead track of Future Soundtrack for America, a political benefit album put out by Barsuk Records in the fall of 2004.
So you were born in an electrical storm
took a bite out the sun
saw your future in a machine built for two
now your rays, make me kind of go crazy,
shocked and awe and amaze me.
