OK Go got its start in 1998 in Chicago, Ill., although the band is now based in Los Angeles, Calif. OK Go is known for its elaborate and quirky music videos that are done in one take as well as concerts that incorporate those videos and include choreographed dance numbers, fun audience participation and a lot of confetti sprayed out into the audience. The videos have not gone unnoticed; the video for "Here It Goes Again" won a Grammy for Best Music Video in 2007. All four of OK Go's studio albums have cracked the Billboard Hot 200, and the album Of the Blue Colour of the Sky made it to No. 7 on the US Rock Charts.
OK Go: Music Video Mayhem
Many musicians create amazing music videos, often using heavy editing and computer animation to do so. OK Go creates its own music video mayhem in more organic ways. For instance, the video for the song "Upside Down and Inside Out" features the band in a state of weightlessness, like the members are in space. While most bands would have used green screens, wires, and computer touch-ups to create this look, OK Go used a jet. The jet was ascending and diving in a way that gave the band bursts of weightlessness and even required the band members to take anti-nausea medicine to deal with. The band's dedication to creating amazing music videos has garnered the group a lot of attention and awards with "Upside Down and Inside Out" winning the 2016 Smithsonian Magazine Ingenuity Award in the category of visual arts. OK Go has won many awards all over the world, including the 2010 UK Music Video Award for Video of the Year, the 2016 Eurobest European Advertising Festival gold medal for Film Craft and the 2015 MTV Music Award for Best Choreography.
