The Alien Ant Farm are an American band who focus on alternative rock as a principle genre. They came together in the year 1995 in the southern California city of Riverside.
The name Alien Ant Farm comes from an idea that the original guitarist Terry Corso had about aliens and the earth "I was daydreaming at my dull desk job with my feet up, and I thought to myself, 'Wouldn't it be cool if the human species were placed on earth and cultivated by alien intelligence?' Maybe the aliens added us to an atmosphere that was suitable for us, and they've been watching us develop and colonize, kind of like what a kid does with an ant farm." The group has generated sales of over 1 million units all across the globe. They have to their credit 4 studio albums, and 8 music videos.
In the early 2000s, the Alien Ant Farm came out with their underground debut album with the title “Greatest Hits”. The album went on to achieve and win the “Best Independent Album” in the L.A. Music Awards.
