Today’s track is by a band that…doesn’t actually exist. Yep, the Gorillaz aren’t even real – they’re completely fabricated from the minds of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewitt, each character (2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, Russel Hobbs) all having a unique backstory and role in the band. The cool thing is that the Gorillaz sound changes constantly, as the musical contributors on each track differ, with Albarn being the only mainstay. That versatility led to the smash hit “Feel Good Inc.” from their album Demon Days; for me, this is the song that kicked off the Gorillaz’ mainstream success, being their most successful single to date. The music video is also very unique and definitely worth checking out. All in all, Feel Good Inc combines a catchy groove with De La Soul’s slick rapping, dope musicality, and an upbeat tempo to get the people up and jammin’! Hopefully not at work though. Unless your boss is cool like that.
