In 2001, the Gorillaz took the world by storm with their massive debut single, “Clint Eastwood.” The hit song preceded the band’s self-titled debut album, released in the same year. The music video showed cartoon character band members named Murdoc Niccals, 2-D, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs. The single debuted at number 4 on the U.K. charts and performed moderately in the U.S. charts, peaking at number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Gorillaz finally performed outstandingly in the U.S. charts with the band’s sophomore album, Demon Days. The album debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200, with its lead single, “Feel Good Inc,” peaking at number 14 on the Hot 100.
After their second release, Gorillaz released several more highly-acclaimed albums, the latest being Song Machine, Season 1: Strange Timez. The 2020 album performed impressively on the U.K. and U.S. charts, peaking at numbers 2 and 12. This year, the band will release their forthcoming album, The Static Channel.
