Over the past decade Placebo have slowly but surely grown into one of the biggest and best rock bands on the globe. Meds is Placebo?s first studio album since 2003?s Sleeping With Ghosts, which went Top 10 in the UK, sold 1.4 million copies worldwide and firmly re-established the band's foothold in the USA. In that time Placebo have gone from strength to strength selling out arena dates all over the world including the 18,000 capacity Bercy in Paris (comparable in size to Madison Square Garden). Like other darkly romantic acts that speak directly to the scorched human soul - The Cure, Depeche Mode, Morrissey, REM - theirs has been a steady, cultish global explosion. But when Brian Molko, Stefan Olsdal and Steve Hewitt sold out Wembley Arena in 2004 during a triumphant homecoming jaunt to promote that year?s Singles package Once More With Feeling, with Robert Smith as special guest, the lid was blown on rock?s worst kept secret: for ten years Placebo had been creeping up on superstardom, now here they were taking their place on the podium. Placebo have taken the world, now they?re coming for you. Be blissfully afraid.
Can you believe that Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" premiered on MTV two decades ago? We're all feeling a little old, so we'll cheer ourselves up with a picture collection of Olympic divers in mid-jump.
