Alien Ant Farm

This alternative metal group was formed in
Riverside, California, USA in 1995 by Dryden Mitchell (vocals), Terry
Corso (guitar), Tye Zamora (bass) and Mike Cosgrove (drums). Their
strange moniker, Alien Ant Farm, arises from Corso's concept of humanity being watched
by aliens like a child watching his ant farm.
The quartet built up a
strong following on the west coast of America and even ventured into
Europe for some well-received festival dates. Their cheekily named
debut "Greatest Hits," was released on the band's own Chick Music
imprint in 1999, and was named best Independent Rock Album at that
year's L.A. Music Awards.
A recording contract with
Papa Roach's New Noize imprint followed, giving Alien Ant Farm all the benefits
of the label's distribution deal with the major DreamWorks. "ANThology,"
released in March 2001, received good reviews and made in-roads into
the U.S. national chart. The second single from the album, a quirky
cover version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" with an excellent promotional video, helped push the
album into the upper regions of the Billboard 200 album chart.
