The 21st century has become something of a renaissance for Tesla. Most recently, 2014’s Simplicity bowed at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200. The group ignited ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! in addition to scorching stages at festivals such as Rocklahoma, Graspop Metal Meeting and Sweden Rock Festival as well as the cruise Monsters of Rock! Tesla’s music is often referred to as heavy metal, but better described as blues metal, as the band’s lyrics stray from the themes popular in heavy metal, particularly those in the 1980s around the beginning of their career. A further distinction from their contemporaries is their signature blue-collar, T-shirt-and-jeans image, which was in strong contrast to the big hair, leather pants and flashy makeup that characterized glam bands in the scene during that time. Thanks to a die-hard, loyal fan base and their younger generation offspring, the critically acclaimed iconic Sacramento rock quintet has sold more than 25 million albums and performed to sold out crowds across the world.
