Faith No More

With their fusion of heavy metal, funk, hip-hop, and progressive rock, Faith No More has earned a substantial cult following. By the time they recorded their first album in 1985, the band had already had a string of lead vocalists, including Courtney Love; their debut, We Care a Lot, featured Chuck Mosley's abrasive vocals but was driven by Jim Martin's metallic guitar. Faith No More's next album, 1987's Introduce Yourself, was a more cohesive and impressive effort; for the first time, the rap and metal elements didn't sound like they were fighting each other.

In 1988, the rest of the band fired Mosley; he was replaced by Bay Area vocalist Mike Patton during the recording of their next album, The Real Thing. Patton was a more accomplished vocalist, able to change effortlessly between rapping and singing, as well as adding a considerably more bizarre slant to the lyrics. Besides adding a new vocalist, the band had tightened its attack and the result was the genre-bending hit single "Epic," which established them as a major hard rock act.

Following up the hit wasn't as easy, however. Faith No More followed their breakthrough success with 1992's Angel Dust, one of the more complex and simply confounding records ever released by a major label. Although it sold respectably, it didn't have the crossover potential of the first album. When the band toured in support of the album, tensions between the band and Martin began to escalate; rumors that his guitar was stripped from some of the final mixes of Angel Dust began to circulate. As the band was recording its fifth album in early 1994, it was confirmed that Martin had been fired from the band.

Faith No More recorded King for a Day, Fool for a Lifetime with Mr. Bungle guitarist Trey Spruance. During tour preparations he was replaced by Dean Mentia. Mentia only lasted for the length of the King for a Day tour and was replaced by Jon Hudson for 1997's Album of the Year. Upon the conclusion of the album's supporting tour, Faith No More announced they were disbanding in April 1998. Patton, who had previously fronted Mr. Bungle and had avant-garde projects with John Zorn, formed a new band named Fantômas with Melvins guitarist Buzz Osbourne, Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, and former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. Roddy Bottum continued with his band Imperial Teen, who released their first album, Seasick, in 1996. A posthumous Faith No More retrospective, Who Cares a Lot, appeared in late 1998.

In 2009, after eleven years of dissolution, Faith No More toured Europe without Jim Martin but with Patton as vocalist. A U.S. tour followed a year later. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I have faith in Faith No More.
New Album and tour next year woohoo
OOOOOOOOOOOO O O O O O O O O O O O O O BUUUUUUNS!
This band does not get talked about enough.

Interesting just how awful the vocals are with Chuck Mosley and how awesome they are with Patton. Introduce Yourself could be so much better if only Patton had been on that one.
Patton...bri l l i a n t , genius.
DCRUM00 - Use Spotify if you would like to listen to individual bands. ...and Spotify is much better than Pandora.
@ dcrum00: Because Pandora doesn't play music exclusively to that artist for legal reasons. No online music service does this. They play numerous songs by that artist, but have to mix in similar artists to add variety. They'll play more FNM, you just have to wait for it to be played, like it, then you'll hear it more frequently.
I love Angel Dust...!
why when i set up a Faith no More Channel, Pandora plays 1 FNM song and then a bunch of other stuff???? I want to hear FNM!!!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
Love this band and MIke Patton!
PLS>>>>TAKE THIS BOTTLE
Agrees with tat2
Hey Pandora, you got your FNM Ashes to Ashes lyrics mixed up with Bowie's Major Tom. Might wanna look into that.
I BELEWAVE TUNES MAKES DAA WORLD GHOUL AROUND...... . . . . . . . . .
MVP most under rated musician of our time! the man is a musical genius.
Saw FNM in SF 2010. Best show I've seen so far. Patton's been my idol since the "Epic" video hit. Also seen Mr. Bungle and Peeping Tom. Best FNM album is definitely "King for a Day, Fool for Lifetime."
Its a mid life crisis yu f**ks
All time favourite band.
FNM all day long
MY BIGGEST INFLUENCE & GREATEST MOST UNDERRATED BAND OF ALL F**KING TIME
Hey Pandora, thank you for making more FNM lyrics available.
@ Fuyfu Smith - I agree. I never knew War Pigs was a cover song until many, many years later. I still prefer FNM's version. Kicks so much a**.
Caffeine is a legend song. Rock on FNM.
of all covers...war pigs...how cool. the best
Noone thats who.
Who cares a lot
An were doing it
But its still a dirty job
Its a dirty job every f**kin day for most of us.
Never got to c these guyz on this tour. Will always regret. One of the 1st albums i ever got hi to- amazing! Harsh, beautiful and hilarious.

US tour a year later, my arse! They didn't even play Chicago.
My #1 album I've been listening too since it first released. Recently discovered how good Angel Dust is too.

I meant angel dust. OF COURSE!

Ever have one album you have to buy over and over and over? Stolen, cd stepped on, tape snapped in car(TWICE!), lost, stolen again. Love this album. Top five All Time. It is always replaced.
My favorite band, hands down. Their creativity seemingly had no limits. I'm glad they're playing together again and am looking forward to a new studio album.
Man Chuck Moseley sucks! No wonder they got rid of him.
Mike patton for president!
How about noting FTNM influenced every goddamn rock/metal band that followed them-if u don't think early Incubus and System of a Down rip off mike patton then u r delusional-
Faith No More is who I pray to.
Does Jim Martin still live with his mom?
chargedtaco
Twelve Foot Ninja has a new modern Faith No Moreish sound.
Most underrated band ever!
Epic best ever
Stripsearch is my fav
my favorite band of all time
Love them and Mike Patton's solo work
For a ton of musicians (including me) this band sets a tone for everything good about rock music. Concise, accessible artsy experimentat i o n , that produces epic songs that sound like no one else.
One of the Best ever
