The success of Cheap Trick is undeniable, and their sound is unmistakable. As one of the most covered bands of all time, Cheap Trick is widely considered one of the most legendary bands to come out of the late 70's and early 80's. The original formation of Cheap Trick occurred in Rockford, Illinois, the hometown of the band's members. The beginning of Cheap Trick can be traced to the band Fuse, which released an album in 1969 that proved to be a flop. Fuse was formed by Rick Nielson and Tom Petersson, and as they grew frustrated by the lack of success they moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and changed their name to Sick Man of Europe. But once again, the success they had hoped for eluded them. After a return to Illinois, Nielson and Petersson added Bun E. Carlos as well as Robin Zander to the group and ultimately become known as Cheap Trick.
After touring with the likes of Santana and AC/DC, Cheap Trick took their material to the studio and recorded their self titled debut album in 1977. While it sold well, the album failed to break through in America. But what Cheap Trick lacked in success in America, it made up for in its incredible popularity in Japan. That popularity led to the recording of At Budokan, a live album recorded at Japan's sold-out Budokan Arena. The energy and style were captured and, upon its release in America, put Cheap Trick on the map. The album reached as high as #4 on the charts and featured the first Top 10 hit from Cheap Trick, "I Want You to Want Me" peaking at #7.
Cheap Trick would go on to release other platinum selling albums Dream Police (1979), Lap of Luxury (1988) and The Greatest Hits (1991). They also remain extremely popular in Japan, selling out Cheap Trick tickets every time.
