OK Go is an Alternative Rock/Power Pop band. The band formed in 1998, and have gone from being an also-ran in the early 2000's "Return of Rock" that also spawned The Strokes and The White Stripes to being internationally famous for their inventive music videos which are often complex, shot in one take and on a low budget.

Their most recognized song is "Here it Goes Again", famous for the music video where the four members performed a choreographed dance over several sets of treadmills (see right). More recently, "This Too Shall Pass" gained a degree of notoriety thanks to its Rube Goldberg machine video.

The group currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

The band's albums are:

  • OK Go (2002)
  • Oh No (2005)
  • Of the Blue Colour of the Sky (2010)

Their videos include:

Notes

  1. They were trying to make 8 songs in 8 hours, but ended up doing 6 in 12.
  2. The second, more famous video does feature two post-production cuts to help the video synch up to the song, but the contraption was really run all the way through on the take used.
