Starting in 1999 this British indie band started making waves and finally decided on calling themselves Bloc Party in 2003. Since that time they have jumped to the forefront of the scene with plenty of critical acclaim and devotion from fans. To confirm their success they have even gotten some of their tunes on the very popular Guitar Hero video game. This falls into the you know you've made it when category.
Using different influences like The Cure, The Jam, The Smashing Pumpkins, and The Smiths they have come up with their own guitar rock sound. As they've gone on their sound has become more polished and less raw sounding…for better or worse, depending on your point of view. They now include some R&B and electronica rhythms in some of their songs. Check out the evolution of this young, talented band.
