The Black Keys are a two-man band known for rough-and-tough rock feels, but they are also known to perform traditional blues rock, psychedelic rock, and garage rock. They formed in Akron, Ohio in 2001, and have since climbed the charts by producing gold-selling work. Their forming was a complete accident: Dan Auerbach was scheduled for a studio recording session, but his backup musicians totally bailed on him. Patrick Carney happened to be at the studio, and they began to play music together. This chill jam session resulted in the founding of The Black Keys. Together, Auerbach and Carney released Rubber Factory in 2004. This album was a huge spark that charged their growing fanbase. By 2008, they made Billboard’s Top 15 with their album, Attack, and Release.
