1[[quoteright:350:]]께Death from Above (formerly known as Death from Above 1979) is a Canadian AlternativeDance and NoiseRock duo, consisting of bassist Jesse F. Keeler and drummer and vocalist Sebastien Grainger.께While the two have told [[MultipleChoicePast numerous stories regarding the circumstances of how they met]] (at a Music/SonicYouth concert, in prison, on a pirate ship, in a gay bar, etc.), Keeler and Grainger did officially come together in 2001, releasing their debut EP ''Heads Up'' the following year.께The original band name was Death from Above, but in 2004 they were forced to change to Death from Above 1979 after the record label of the same name caught notice and sent a cease-and-desist letter. To say they were upset about this was quite the {{understatement}}.께Shortly after, their first album ''You're a Woman, I'm a Machine'' was released and gained a following for its seamless blend of noise rock and dance grooves, as well as its sexual lyrics. CreativeDifferences saw the split of the duo in 2006, but they eventually reunited in 2011, mainly sticking to live shows for several years before releasing their second album, ''The Physical World''. Their third album, ''Outrage! Is Now'', followed three years later.께Their song "Romantic Rights" was also used as the theme song to ''Series/HumanGiant''.께----!!Band Members: * Sebastien Grainger - vocals, drums* Jesse F.
