Bio: Los Lonely Boys

WAR is a rock band from Los Angeles. In late 1971 WAR released All Day Music, the title track would be the group's first hit single, and their first gold single "Slippin' Into Darkness" followed propelling the album to over 1 million sales and a winning streak that would continue for years. In 1972 the band's sound was refined and deepened with the release of The World Is A Ghetto. Its first single, "The Cisco Kid" shipped gold and brought the band a following in the Hispanic community that has remained loyal to the group to this day. The thought provoking title song "The World Is A Ghetto" fueled the album to the Number One chart spot in Billboard and was voted Billboard's Album of the Year. It was 1975 when the Why Can't We Be Friends? album was released. It contained the hit title track, "Low Rider", and "Don't Let No One Get You Down". This year saw WAR's touring, record sales, and notoriety reach new heights. In 1981 after WAR made the one-off single "Cinco de Mayo", War signed with RCA Victor Records and recorded singles "Just Because", “Outlaw” (1982) and "You Got the Power". Followed by “Life” (is So Strange) (1983). WAR did not record another full album until a decade later. The "Best of WAR" compiled in 1987 included two new tracks, "Livin in the Red', and "Whose Cadillac is That?", and a remixed version of "Low Rider" in addition of to the original "Low Rider" version.

The band's popularity has grown steadily ever since, as a result of the commitment to being road WARriors combined with great increases television appearances, record sales, use of their music in film, television and commercials, samples and covers by other recording artists. A big shot in the arm to WAR's presence on the touring scene was the release of 1994's Peace Sign, an album well received by critics and fans. WAR now tours over 150 dates a year to audiences ranging from tens of thousands to intimate clubs.

WAR's global popularity is a tribute to the timelessness of its music and message. Perhaps, nothing epitomizes this truth greater than the fact that WAR has twice been honored by its hometown of Los Angeles, over twenty years apart, for its music making positive contributions to the betterment of the community. "The world is still a ghetto", says Lonnie Jordan, echoing the title of the early album and song. "There will always be a reason to play our songs. When you come back to reality, you pull down WAR, because WAR is reality. We have a lot of second-generation fans and they're seeing the same things their parents saw. They're hearing the same messages. We're like Levi's," says Jordan, "and there's nothing nostalgic about Levi's. In fact, they're not really good and funky until they've been worn awhile."

The evolution of WAR began in 1969...and WAR has been evolving ever since.

Their debut single, "Heaven", was a number one hit on the Billboard adult contemporary chart and reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2004.
