In 1998 the band was founded by Hollywood actor Jared Leto and his brother, Shannon.
A decision was made to name the band 30 Seconds to Mars after they read a thesis on the internet. A section of the thesis was entitled “Thirty Seconds To Mars”. It discusses the exponential growth of human-related technology and says that we are virtually thirty seconds to Mars.
The band has released a total of four chart-topping albums: 30 Seconds to Mars, A Beautiful Lie, This is War and Love Lust Faith.
Jared Leto is not only the lead vocalist of the band, but the rhythm guitarist and main songwriter too.
A $30 million lawsuit was filed against the band in August 2008 by Virgin Records. The record company claimed the band refused to deliver three albums as required by its contract.
The band’s musical inspirations include The Cure, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin.
The Music video for their song, “The Hurricane”, was banned from many popular Television stations due to mature content.
Matt Watcher (former bassist) developed a concussion from frequently head banging on stage!
To promote their second album (A Beautiful Lie) the band included 12 (Willy Wonka Style) “Golden Tickets” for entrance to any show along with backstage access!
Their third single from A Beautiful Lie, “From Yesterday”, made history by being the first American rock video ever shot in China. (So for this reason Gaston Jauregui and I thought it would be fun to cover this piece!)
