Formed in 1988, Deftones began with the intention of exploring alternative avenues and drawing on the work of hip hop, post punk and new wave bands - especially reggae hardcore punks Bad Brains. They went so far as to appropriate the hip hop slang word Def into their name to immediately display their various influences.
Audiences were enraptured by the new sound they were creating and debut album Adrenaline spent 21 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon release in 1994. Three years later they returned with the album Around The Fur which contained two of their signature songs; My Own Summer (Shove It) and Be Quiet And Drive (Far Away) which would sell 43,000 copies in the first week alone.
Their growth has continued to be monumental with White Pony debuting at #3 on the Bill board 200, beaten by the eponymously titled album Deftones which entered the charts at #2. Tracks on Saturday Night Wrist were used on the smash hit video game Guitar Hero 3. Their success has continued with subsequent albums Diamond Eyes, Koi No Yakan and Gore.
