Pioneering heavy metal while providing inspiration to psychedelic jam bands and arena rockers alike, genre-bending Blue Öyster Cult offers an unforgettable walk on the wild side. Formed on a New York college campus in 1967, the band has sold over 24 million records worldwide and is best known for smash singles like “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” “Burnin’ For You,” and “Godzilla.”

Upon the release of its self-titled debut album in 1972, BÖC was praised for its catchy yet heavy music and was often referred to as “the thinking man’s heavy metal band” due its masterful songwriting, cryptic lyrics, and vague references to famous authors. In addition to its classic hits, other notable songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll,” “Then Came the Last Days of May,” “I Love the Night,” “In Thee,” “Veteran of the Psychic Wars,” “Dominance and Submission,” “Astronomy,” “Black Blade,” and “Shooting Shark.”

The band has been known to incorporate elements of science fiction and occultism into its jaw-dropping live show, and this allegiance to dynamic performances influenced several acts that followed like Metallica, Iron Maiden, and Alice in Chains. BÖC was also listed in VH1’s “Greatest Hard Rock Bands of All Time” countdown.

With original members Buck Dharma and Eric Bloom still at the helm, complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, bass guitarist Danny Miranda, and drummer Jules Radino, the riff-heavy and intelligently hook-laden Blue Öyster Cult remains a staple among the heavy metal greats.
