Alien Ant Farm is an American rock band that formed in Riverside, California, in 1995. Their name comes from an idea original guitarist Terry Corso had about aliens and the earth: "it was just my daydream about our planet being seeded by entities from other dimensions." The quartet has enjoyed worldwide success and have sold over 5 million units worldwide, and has four studio albums, eight music videos, a Grammy nomination and 4 top 10 singles.

The band built a massive following on the road early in their career via high profile 2001 runs with Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Warped, and as the headliner on an MTV presented Fall Tour. In 2002, fame spread across the world, bringing Alien Ant Farm to the major European festivals, Australia's Big Day Out and a headline run in Japan. The following year they returned to Europe with Metallica, and to this day the band has steadily delivered audiences in territories across the globe.
