Kaiser Chiefs are an English alternative rock band from Leeds who formed in 1997. They were named after the South African football club Kaizer Chiefs, a team for which former Leeds United defender Lucas Radebe played.
The group's debut album, Employment, was released in 2005. It was primarily inspired by new wave and punk rock music of late 1970s, and enjoyed international success with over three million copies sold. In 2005, the album was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. Kaiser Chiefs' second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob (2007), yielded "Ruby", a number one single in the United Kingdom. They released their third album, Off with Their Heads, in October 2008.Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaiser_Chiefs
