Beck preforming live


Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell, July 8, 1970) is an Amercan stage musician, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, known by the stage name Beck. With a pop art collage of musical styles, oblique and ironic lyrics, and postmodern arrangements incorporating samples, drum machines, live instrumentation and sound effects, Beck has been hailed by critics throughout his musical career as being amongst the most creative and idiosyncratic musicians of 1990s and 2000s alternative rock.

The four-time platinum artist rose to underground popularity with his early works, which combined social criticism (as in "MTV Wants Me To Smoke Crack" and "Deep Fried Love") with musical and lyrical experimentation. He first earned wider public attention for his breakthrough single "Loser", a 1994 hit.

Two of Beck's most popular and acclaimed recordings are Odelay (1996) and Sea Change (2002). Odelay was awarded Album of the Year by the American magazine Rolling Stone and by UK publications NME and Mojo. Odelay also received a Grammy nomination for Albm of the Year. Both Odelayand Sea Change appeared on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time



In Guitar Hero 5 his song "Gamma Ray" is playable, and "Loser" is mixed with Eminem's "My Name Is" for DJ Hero
