Coldplay is one of the longest running pop bands, having been formed in London wayyyyy back in 1996.
They went through several different name changes, and got signed quickly after they went with the name “Coldplay.”
Coldplay went on a tear starting in 2000 with the release of their single “Yellow”
From there, the band would go on to be named the fourth best artists of the 2000 era, performing at the Super Bowl, and participating in multiple charity performances like Band Aid 20, Live 8, and One Love Manchester.
The greatest thing about Coldplay, is not the music, not the sold out tours, but the fact that 10% of their earnings go to charity. It’s something that they started when they weren’t making any money at all, but now as one of the biggest bands of all time, they continue to do great things, and help out wherever they can in whatever way!
