Back in 2009, two friends joined up in Columbus to form a band that really is a cult icon!
21 Pilots is composed of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun. Their 2015 album Blurryface was a commercial success with lots of praise going into the award season.
“Stressed Out” was on the top of the charts, played on alternative and pop radio, and really made them a contender for the Grammy’s.
In fact, every single song off that album made history. It became the first album in history on which every track received at least a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.
Their next single, Ride was certified platinum and was used in sports commercials as well.
They’ve performed on all the late night shows, The Grammy’s, Saturday Night Live, everywhere. They even accepted their Grammy award in their underwear, seriously. It was a promise they made to each other when they were an underground band.
