OK Go Biography

Comprising a four-piece line-up, fronted by singer + guitarist Damian Kulash, along with school friends keyboardist + guitarist Andy Duncan, bassist Dan Konopka and drummer Tim Nordwind, the Alternative-Rock combo OK Go formed in 1999, in Chicago, Illinois USA.

The guys quickly developed a solid following in their hometown and after a couple of years signed with Capitol Records who issued their eponymously titled debut album in September of 2002. The record rose to #1 on The Billboard Top Heatseekers list and subsequently reached #107 on The Billboard 200 Sales chart while the single, "Get Over It", crashed into The Modern Rock airplay chart to take the #20 position.

OK Go recorded their second album in the Swedish industrial town of Malmö. The disc, entitled "Oh No", was released in August 2005 peaking at #69 on The Billboard 200, it included two British hit single "A Million Ways" and "Here It Goes Again", the latter of which became the band's first Billboard Hot 100 top 40 and their second Hot Modern Rock top 20 hit.
Shortly after the album's release, Duncan left the band and Andy Ross took over guitar and keys duties.

"WTF?" was the first single from OK Go's third outing, "Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky", which was released in January 2010 on Capitol Records. The CD reached the #40 on The Billboard 200 and yielded two Hot Modern Rock top 40 hits: "White Knuckles" and "This Too Shall Pass".
