There are groups that when they appear are absolutely defining the history of music. They arrive without warning, and are greeted by a wide range of music lovers with shouts of praise. That’s what happened with PLACEBO, a band that didn’t ask for permission to bypass Britpop and shape rock in their androgynous way and, with that, burst onto the tops of the world, selling more than 12 million albums until today.
The list of iconic works, devotional pieces of alternative rock, hedonistic and lustful, is worthy of a bow, worth the wide industry recognition that acclaimed Placebo in 2009 as “Best Alternative Band” in the MTV Europe Music Award. A consecration easily explained by the flood of successes that were being released disc after disc, making the radio playlists tremble, surrendered to hits such as “Nancy Boy”, “Every You Every Me”, “Without You I’m Nothing” – with the collaboration with David Bowie, clear inspiration from Molko – “Taste in Men”, the controversial “Special K” or the explosive “The Bitter End”.
