From a "Grassroots Following" to World Tours: About Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons formed in 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to the official Imagine Dragons website, it all started when the band independently released their own EP's and built up a following before signing with a major label.

Their first full-length, debut album, "Night Visions" is what really "planted the flag" for these guys in the industry as a little-known track called "Radioactive" took off to achieve diamond-selling status.

Maybe you've heard of it?

Over the years, Imagine Dragons has continued to put out chart-topping hits with music that always seems to make it into car commercials and excite the masses.

Sure, they've been lumped into categories like "dad rock" and some may even call them "spicy Nickelback" (to which front man Dan Reynolds has responded) for their signature style but one thing remains, people love these guys. Also, let's be real here...Nickelback really isn't even that bad, y'all just like a good bandwagon.
