Third Eye Blind is an American rock band formed in San Francisco,
California, in 1993.
After years of lineup changes in the early and mid-1990s, the songwriting duo of
Stephan Jenkins and Kevin Cadogan signed the band's first major-label recording
contract with Elektra Records in 1996.
The band found commercial success in the late 1990s, with Third Eye Blind and
Blue certified platinum six times and single platinum in the United States,
respectively. Several songs were a commercial success as well, with
"Semi-Charmed Life", "Jumper", and "How's It Going to Be", all reaching the Top
10 of the US Billboard Hot 100, and "Never Let You Go" reaching the Top 20.
Third Eye Blind has sold around 12 million records worldwide.

Third Eye Blind's musical style has been described as pop rock,
alternative rock, post-grunge, and pop punk. Jenkins noted that he was
influenced by The Clash,
and Camper Van Beethoven. Hargreaves stated that his drumming style was
influenced by the Ohio
The Who and James Brown.
In the mid '90s, Third Eye Blind spent a couple of years coming together, falling apart and coming together again, sleeping on floors and playing on the barely-existent San Francisco club scene. But as soon as real opportunity presented itself - in the form of their self-titled 1997 debut album with Elektra - they took it, and took off.

Third Eye Blind quickly found themselves becoming headliners. "We were supposed to open up for somebody, but after three shows, we were headlining," says Jenkins. "It didn't seem unusual to us because we always put on our own shows in the past." In fact, the only two bands 3EB have supported are
The Rolling Stones. Not bad for an upstart band pegged early on as a group who refused to conform.
Also in 1997, Third Eye Blind performed at
Blockbuster RockFest in Fort Worth, Texas with others such as
Counting Crows, Jewel,
and Paula Cole.
Additionally, Third Eye Blind toured extensively with
They scaled the charts with this album and its first single "Semi Charmed Life." They then made clear their intention to stick around by reeling off four more undeniable rock anthems - "Graduate," "How's It Going To Be," "Losing A Whole Year" and "Jumper." The album sold six million copies and remained on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart for well over a year. Their 1999 follow-up, "Blue," approached double platinum on the strength of the Stones-inflected single "Never Let You Go" and a sold-out worldwide tour that lasted a year.
One might construe three years between albums to be evidence of slacking, but nothing could be further from the truth. "We'd make more albums if we didn't like playing live so much," declares Brad Hargreaves. Jenkins adds, "In a way, I envy hip hop producers like
Missy Elliott, who can stay home and make more records. But they miss out on the intensity of the exchange with a live audience, which I would never give up. But it's hectic and it's crazy, and after two albums back-to-back I had to stop for a year to rebuild."
Third Eye Blind has tried to affirm that real touch right down to the design of their stage show. It's modeled after the kind of run-down club where such camaraderie can't be faked. In Jenkins words: "It mirrors what the songs are about. We deal with things that are lost, things you can't get back. There's a darkness there, but also reconciliation. The set is a dilapidated club, and we're squatters in that club."
Their discography includes
seven studio albums, one live album, two compilation albums, three extended
plays, 25 singles, three promotional singles, and 31 music videos.
