Founded in 1996, British alternative rock band, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Coldplay[/lastfm], has become one of the biggest bands in the world thanks to their crossover soft rock sound and their heartfelt lyrics.
While the band hasn’t released a new album since 2008, this Friday (June 3rd) the boys plan on unleashing the first single called “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” from their untitled fifth album.
Releasing their début album, Parachutes, in 2000 and around the same time as the internet boom, Coldplay has tons of videos online, both official and fanmade.
