Formed in Portland, Oregon, the Dandy Warhols released their first full-length album, Dandy's Rule OK?, in 1995, a unique mix of quirky pop, power guitar and clever lyrics. The group attained more widespread success, especially in Europe, with the release of their second album, Dandy Warhols Come Down, featuring the popular single "Not if You Were the Last Junkie on Earth." With a new drummer onboard, the group released their third album, Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia, to much acclaim in 2000. The track "Bohemian Like You" became a favorite among indie rock listeners and appeared on numerous film and television soundtracks, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Six Feet Under. 2003 saw the release of the group's fourth album, Welcome to the Monkey House, co-produced by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran. The synth-heavy, new wave-influenced album was conceived as a tribute to Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s short story collection of the same name. The group returned to more guitar-driven songs with Odditorium or Warlords of Mars, released in 2005.
