They were called Tenth Level Tauren Chieftain in the days of ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'', changed to Level 60 Elite when [=WoW=] came out, then went up to 70 with the release of the ''Burning Crusade'' expansion and 80 with ''Wrath of the Lich King,'' to keep up with the maximum level. At [=BlizzCon=] 2009, in the wake of another announced level cap increase for the ''Cataclysm'' expansion, they broke their pattern and instead changed their name to [[http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091025222744/wowwiki/images/1/10/TAFKAL80ETC.jpg this symbol]], referring to themselves as [[TheTropeFormerlyKnownAsX "The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain"]] (or TAFKAL80ETC for short), parodying {{Prince}}. They became Level 90 Elite Tauren Chieftan when ''Mists of Pandaria'' raised the level cap once more, returning to their usual pattern. With the release of ''Warlords of Draenor'' and the level cap raising to 100, they instead ended their pattern of name changes once and for all by settling on "Elite Tauren Chieftan".

** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQyV9qMK7FM&fmt=18 Terran Up the Night]]'' (2007): Their first non-''Warcraft'' song, composed to celebrate the announcement of VideoGame/StarcraftII earlier that year. This song was later included in ''Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty'' (which focused on the terrans, appropriately enough), and could be heard in the game's jukebox, during the credits and during gameplay when the player entered the cheat "overengineeredcodpiece". Credited as Level ''800'' Elite Tauren Chieftain.

* CreatorCameo / TheCastShowOff: Because the band was formed by Blizzard employees, this was expected. They have appeared several times in ''World of Warcraft'', and there's an ad of the band in ''Starcraft II''.

They 'appear' in ''World of Warcraft'' itself as The Tauren Chieftains, doing hourly performances of "Power of the Horde" in Shattrath City, as well as standing in Silvermoon City on a balcony and waving back to anyone who waves at them.
