Faith No More is an AlternativeMetal band formed in San Francisco, California in 1981 by bassist Billy Gould, keyboardist Wade Worthington, vocalist Mike Morris and drummer Mike Bordin.

After going through a series of singers which included CourtneyLove, the band was joined by Chuck Mosley in 1983. The same year, Jim Martin was recruited to replace guitarist Mark Bowen. After a long, long time spent changing the lineup before, eventually, Chuck Mosley was replaced by Music/MikePatton, and the band found massive success with their third album, ''The Real Thing'', which contains their best-known song "Epic".

* EvilLaugh: The chorus of "Land Of Sunshine" consists of this provided by Mike Patton.
* FakeOutFadeOut: The album version of "Anne's Song" fades out near the end of the track, then it quickly fades back in for about ten seconds and [[NoEnding just abruptly cuts off]] - this is particularly jarring because the next track on the album, "Introduce Yourself", has a LyricalColdOpen.

* SurprisinglyGentleSong \ TrollingCreator: Their cover of [[Music/BlackSabbath "War Pigs"]] was a live staple. So at a certain point they decided to spite the metalhead audience who even started to ask for "War Pigs" and go into the Commodores' "Easy", and later TheBeeGees' "I Started A Joke" instead.

The band is best known for combining elements of HeavyMetal, {{Funk}}, ProgressiveRock, HipHop, HardcorePunk, and {{Jazz}}, among many others, [[spoiler:among many, many, many others... seriously...]], and is considered one of the most influential rock bands of modern times, "Epic" having massively influenced the NuMetal genre.

** "Land of Sunshine", which probably has some rather well-hidden subtexts, but is about being happy (and not by using drugs), and is set to a dark metal background with snarly vocals.[[note]]The song was written by piecing together phrases from fortune cookies and [[ChurchOfHappyology Scientology]] personality test questions.[[/note]]
