Placebo has roots in the American International School of
Luxembourg, where both Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal attended, although the two musicians didn't officially meet until years
later in London. In 1994, Olsdal had a chance run-in with Molko in a Tube station, as Molko noticed that Olsdal was carrying
a guitar on his back and invited him to one of his gigs. After Olsdal saw Molko perform at his show, the two decided that
they should create a band, which they named Ashtray Heart. With the addition of a drummer (the current drummer is Steve Forrest)
the duo had officially become a trio, and the band lineup was complete.
In 1996, Placebo released their debut self-titled
album, which peaked at number five on the UK Albums chart and featured hit singles like "Nancy Boy" and "Hong Kong Farewell".
The group became so popular, largely because they emerged onto the music scene during the height of the Britpop era, and they
even toured extensively with David Bowie. For the next several years, Placebo continued to garner more and more fans, which
wasn't hard because as soon as Placebo started to perform, the entire audience was always in awe of their incredible energy
and fantastically catchy songs.
With countless hit rock songs under their belts, it's no surprise that Placebo has performed
at some of the world's most popular music festivals, such as Coachella, the iTunes Festival, the Sundance Film and Music festival,
the Rock im Pott festival, and many more. Whether they are playing at a massive stadium in California or all the way across
the world in Germany, Placebo never fails to put on an incredible show. In addition to having so many phenomenal songs to
