The Chemical Brothers are an English music duo comprising Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, who met at the University of Manchester.

Initially they called themselves "The Dust Brothers." They changed their name in 1995 given the preexisting American duo "The Dust Brothers," their burgeoning popularity and the threat of legal action from the originals. Thus, their first CD as The Chemical Brothers is titled Exit Planet Dust.

Along with The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method and a few other lesser-known acts, they were pioneers at bringing the genre to the forefront of pop culture.

They are known for their high-quality live sets, an example of which can be found on their CD Brothers Gonna Work It Out.
