Gorillaz - toon people, top hip hop

Gorrilaz - The Most Successful Virtual band Ever! (Guinness Book of Records)

Gorillaz are the coolest thing ever!
These animated virtual hip hoppers/MCs are just the razz - i dont think anyone has ever done anything cooler. Such a mega band and no one sees their faces. Just to let you know though; they are actually Native Americans (what some people who don't know, call American Indians).

The Gorillaz website is a real off the wall fun to use site made in flash - you can scan their landscape in the Gorillaz Room, and play the jukebox and go to different places with a mouseover link
they also even have a Gorillaz Mahjong Game to play online

Gorillaz; Tomorrow comes today

Tomorrow Comes Today

Lyrics | Tomorrow Comes Today lyrics
The Video clips to the songs are watchable stories in themselves with or without the music. The music though is the most original and contagious stuff you could tune your ears into.

Gorillaz are a virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn of alternative rock band Blur, and Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the comic book Tank Girl. The band is composed of four animated band members: 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel. The band's music is a collaboration between various musicians with Albarn being the only permanent musical contributor. Their style is broadly alternative rock, but with a large number of other influences including hip hop, electronica, dub and pop.
The band's first album, 2001's Gorillaz, sold over seven million copies and earned them an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize 2001, but the nomination was later withdrawn at the band's request.Their second studio album, Demon Days, was released in 2005 and included the singles "Feel Good Inc.", "DARE", "Dirty Harry" and "Kids With Guns / El Mañana".

Demon Days went five times platinum in the UK, double platinum in the United States and earned five Grammy Award nominations for 2006 and won one of them in the Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals category.Gorillaz have also released two B-sides compilations and a remix album. The combined sales of Gorillaz and Demon Days had, by 2007, exceeded 15 million albums.

Another really cool video (they are all cool actually), which is one of my Favourites is;
Gorillaz - Fire Coming Out Of The Monkeys Head Live

Lyrics | Every Planet We Reach Is Dead lyrics
"jumping out of aeroplanes
and hiding out in holes
waiting for the sunset
people going home
jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head
now everybody dancing
the dance of the dead"

Wanna See 'em Live??? check below clip out (don't be surprised if you still haven't seen a face)
