OMG crowbarred? An EMO band? Pah! it's OK, lots of bands wear panda make up and dye their hair black, as long as the music sounds good and 30 Seconds To Mars music definately sounds good, then who cares how they look. Founded in 1998 by Jared Leto's brother Shannon Leto, 30 Seconds to Mars began as a small family project. Matt Wachter later joined the band as bassist and keyboard player. After working with a number of guitarists (as the band's first two guitarists, Kevin Drake and Solon Bixler, left the band due to issues primarily related to touring), the three auditioned Tomo Miličević to round out the band's roster. According to an interview from Virgin Records, the band's name .. "actually comes from a thesis that the band found online that was written by a former Harvard professor. And one of the subsections of the thesis was titled 'thirty seconds to mars [sic]' and he goes on to talk about the exponential growth of technology that relates to humans and saying that we are quite literally thirty seconds to mars. What it means to us is, we thought it best described our music, in short."
Even though Leto is a major Hollywood actor, he prefers not to use this information to "sell" the band; in fact, Leto hates attention given to himself more than the band so much that he refuses to play shows if they have used his name as a movie star to promote the band. ~[Source: Wikipedia]
Music Video
Jared Leto
In the music video, the band members are in a desert-mud based set where people are digging in mud pits. The band are playing in a ditch where others are watching them. Close to the end of the video, what appears to be SWAT members appear and start to take control of the site. At the end of the video, the band's logos are shown on a stone-based plate. Some of the people who were digging are hosed down by the 'SWAT members'. Throughout the video Jared Leto's face is rarely shown, due to the fact that during the production of the video, Leto was accidentally hit by guitarist Solon Bixler in the forehead, causing a huge lump with severe swelling. This can be seen if the video is carefully viewed. ~ [Source:Wikipedia]
