OK Go was formed in 1998 in Chicago. Now based in Los Angeles, current members of the band include Damian Kulash (lead vocals, guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar, vocals), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion), and Andy Ross (guitar, keyboard, and vocals). The band is perhaps most famous for its viral video, “Here It Goes Again,” featuring an elaborate dance with treadmills, which won a Grammy in 2007 for “Best Short Form Music Video.” It also was awarded a YouTube Video Award for Most Creative Video in 2006.

Other OK Go recognitions include an MTV Europe Music Award nomination for Best Video in 2006 for “A Million Ways,” and a Grammy nomination in 2012 for Best Short Form music Video for “All Is Not Lost.”
