Biography

Although Jordan and Kirkland are both from Las Vegas, Nevada, the band was formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1993.[1] The Crystal Method did most of their earlier production work in an underground shelter lovingly referred to as "The Bomb Shelter" in the front yard of a rented house they once shared as roommates. Before production began on Legion of Boom in 2004, they moved the studio into the garage of the rented house. Many people aren't aware of this, however, and still believe they work in the actual "bomb shelter" which is now a nickname for the studio setup. For further information, see Las Vegas metropolitan area and Las Vegas Strip. ...

Year 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full 1993 Gregorian calendar). ... Legion of Boom is the third official studio album by the American band The Crystal Method, a mixture of different genres, like the rough “True Grit”, to the wiry guitar rock song “Born Too Slow”. Legion Of Boom contains vocals from actress Milla Jovovich and Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. ... Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Band Name

There is a lot of discussion as to whether the band took their name from the drug crystal meth (street slang for methamphetamine). In the 1999 documentary Better Living through Circuitry, it was made clear during the interview the name was a drug reference. Ken Jordan discusses how difficult it is "to tell your parents you are in a band named The Crystal Method". Scott Kirkland talks of breaking the band name to his mom on a nature walk, but to his surprise she responds calmly saying "I guess that makes sense, that's what all the kids are into these days." Methamphetamine is a synthetic stimulant drug which induces a strong feeling of euphoria and is highly psychologically addictive. ... Methamphetamine (methylamphetamine or desoxyephedrine), popularly shortened to meth, is a psychostimulant and sympathomimetic drug. ...


Not surprisingly more recent interviews with the band come up with non-drug-related stories such as a girl named Crystal being the impetus.[2] Certainly a lot of their tracks could be taken as having fun with the subject, "Trip Like I Do" being the most obvious one, but the name of this track actually came from an answering machine message saved on Scott's answering-machine [6] that is one of the samples used in this track and the lyrics seem to have come from the movie The Dark Crystal. There are various interviews with the band citing that the title of the second album, Tweekend, came from the hours of tweaking the sound and mix.[3] The Dark Crystal is a 1982 fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. ...


Awards

In 2005, their third studio album, Legion of Boom, was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Electronica/Dance Album". This marked the first time the Grammys offered such an award. Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...
