Louise Attaque is a band founded in 1994. Its style could be described as something between and , although it has evolved since their first album Louise Attaque, which sold more than 2 million copies without any tv or radio promotion.

Several of the group’s albums were produced by Gordon Gano, lead singer of Violent Femmes, a band which Louise Attaque often cite as an influence and for whom their own band is named: “Louise” is a feminine name, taken from Louise Michel –a french anarchist militant in France in the nineteenth century– and “attaque” connotates violence , it literally means “attack” in French –in reference of the Violent Femmes.
