Formed in 1997. Describe themselves as ‘silly music, tiny band’ but the fact is that Gạt Tàn Đầy is one of the most talented and well-known rockbands in Vietnam. The band was formed back in the early 90s and have been known since then for a very liberal style of music - a combination between alternative, classic rock and funk with witty, straight-to-your-face lyrics. None of the band members is professional musician, they all have their own job and to them, playing music is just the best way to get free and finding harmony. Gạt Tàn Đầy released their debut album, Đám Cưới Chuột (which means The Rat Wedding in English) in early 2006. The song Đám Cưới Chuột itself took the inspiration from a Vietnamese old drawing of the same name.
This song is considered the most successful track in the album. It topped the Vietnamese Songs (Bài Hát Việt) chart in Oct 2006 (though many audiences was laughing the first time the band played) , and was No1 on XoneFM in May 2007.
