Formed in Riverside, California in 1996, the band Alien Ant Farm released five studio albums, sold over 5 million records worldwide and is best known for their hard rock version of the Michael Jackson song “Smooth Criminal.”

According to WikiPedia, “the band was formed in the middle of the 1990s by Dryden Mitchell (vocals), Terry Corso (guitars), Mike Cosgrove (drums) and Tye Zamora (bass). In 1996 they recorded a demo tape entitled the $100 EP containing five songs,and in 1998 they recorded a second demo tape Love Songs, featuring four songs. In 1999, Alien Ant Farm released their debut album, titled Greatest Hits that featured a first version of ‘Smooth Criminal.’ It went on to win Best Independent Album in the L.A. Music Awards that year.”

They planed to release their third album in 2005, but got caught up in record contract limbo when Universal Music bought DreamWorks and signed the band to its Geffen Records label. They weren’t able to release their album Up in the Attic until late 2005.

The band said it had “unofficially” broken up in 2007, but they regrouped, started working on new music and touring in 2011.

Their fourth album, Always and Forever, came out in February 2015.  In March of 2016 they said they were working on new music and they continue to tour.
