Biography

Bigbang is the name of more than one artist.

1) Norwegian rock band
2) South Korean hip hop & R&B group

Bigbang have been dubbed Norway’s Greatest Live Band, and have been a major force in the Norwegian music scene for over a decade. During the past two years, the band has spent time focusing on the American market. Based in California, they have toured the country, playing intimate gigs and promoting their American debut From Acid to Zen, a compilation of songs from previously released albums. The album was very well received and resulted in great reviews among others from Rolling Stone Magazine’s Editor David Fricke: It’s a shotgun buffet, like those early U.S. LPs by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones that combined album tracks and singles from unrelated sessions, and it succeeds the same way: like an instant greatest-hits record. Singer-guitarist-songwriter Øystein Greni has the right history in his genes — his dad sang in a Norwegian band that opened for Led Zeppelin in 1968 — and he grounds songs like “Early December,” “Hurricane Boy” and the brilliantly titled “From Acid to Zen” in the eternal power-chord charge and fish-hook riffs of the Stones and the Who. But Greni also has a knack for wringing fresh excitement from the familiar: the country-angel harmonies and ice-Byrds guitar in the new version of “Wild Bird,” the improbable dream of Badfinger and Hüsker Dü in “The One.

    It would really help if you guys went to their albums and top tracks to suggest a correction to Big Bang.

    Spotify uses this tag for most of their songs. There's an easy way to use the right tag just right click on the song with wrong tag and click on "Unlink Track" then you can change the name of the artist or song name to the right tag. The right tag is "Big Bang" :)

    They've used '빅뱅 (Big Bang)' as artist tag since debut, that's why their main page on last.fm is Big Bang. They only changed to BIGBANG when they went to Japan 'cause they don't do spaces there. For convention, people still use the tag with space since this one has another artist in it. Besides, 'Bigbang' styled this way is ugly as hell and last.fm will not change it.
