Biography

Chicago, Illinois, United States (1998 – present)

OK Go is an American indie rock band which formed in Chicago, Illinois, United States in 1998. The band consists of Damian Kulash (guitar, vocals), Tim Nordwind (bass), Andy Ross (guitar, keyboards), and Dan Konopka (drums). The band is best known for their singles “Get Over It”, “A Million Ways”, “Here It Goes Again” and “This Too Shall Pass” and for their high concept, low budget, one-shot music videos.

They play 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 The 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.
