Duran Duran was founded in 1978 in Birmingham, England. Nick Rhodes and John Taylor wanted to start a British New Romantic band and started to look for other musicians. When they were joined by Roger Taylor, Andy Taylor and Simon Le Bon, the band was complete. They performed many shows around the Birmingham and London areas and eventually signed a recording deal with EMI Records. Their debut album, Duran Duran, was released in 1981 to instant success. It reached #3 on the charts in the UK and made it to #10 on US Billboard charts.
The first single from Duran Duran was "Planet Earth," which made it to the Top 20, but their third single, "Girls on Film," turned the heads of music fans around the world. "Girls on Film" was released in the summer of 1981 and was accompanied by a provocative music video. The video was very controversial, but after the scandal, fans were more interested in buying Duran Duran tickets than ever. Public interest inspired the band to launch a US tour to cities such as Los Angeles and New York.
While their first album sold more than 6 million copies worldwide, Duran Duran reached new heights with their sophomore effort. The album Rio was released in 1982 and featured three Top 20 singles in the US with "Hungry Like the Wolf," "Save a Prayer" and the title track "Rio." The album sold 10 million copies and made the group breakout stars around the world. Seven and the Ragged Tiger (1983) was Duran Duran's third project, and it became their first #1 album in the UK. Seven and the Ragged Tiger sold more than 12 million copies and featured Duran Duran's first American #1 single with "New Moon on Monday."
Since their breakout debut album in 1981, Duran Duran has seen some ups and downs but always makes it to the top. Many of the band's albums have sold over one million copies each, and the group remains a strong touring act. From their very first album, Duran Duran changed the face of the New Wave Music genre. Their art glam personas, wedge haircuts and catchy songs captured the spirit of the 1980's, and their music inspired many fans.
