Electric Six is a six-piece American rock band formed in 1996 in Royal Oak, Michigan. Their music was described by AllMusic as a combination of garage, disco, punk rock, new wave, and metal.The band achieved recognition in 2003 with the singles “Danger! High Voltage” and “Gay Bar”, and have since released 14 studio albums, two rarities albums, and one live album. A live DVD, Absolute Treasure, was released in 2014. The current lineup of the band consists of vocalist Dick Valentine, lead guitarist Johnny Na$hinal, keyboardist Tait Nucleus?, rhythm guitarist Da Vé, bassist Rob Lower, and drummer Hyperkube Bonanza. Session drummer Todd Glass has played on studio albums since 2016.

Electric Six incorporates a variety of styles, resulting in being termed a “genre-blurring” band. The group’s sound has been described as a synthesis of “disco, synth pop, glam, and arena rock,” including the falsetto vocals of disco, laden with “rampant solos, be they guitar riffs, synth wails, or strutting drums” that enforce the band’s “energetic sound.” However, the band members themselves have rejected such genre classifications as “disco-metal” and “disco-punk.”

Critics have termed their lyrics as “disaffected, angry, ironic and lustful”, expressing “macho flippancy” and “tongue-in-cheek pomposity”. Dick Valentine has estimated that “90 percent of our songs, maybe even higher than 90 percent” are “about absolutely nothing.” Songs by Electric Six are often concerned with subjects such as human sexual behavior, masculinity, dancing, hypersexuality, fast food and fire (The band’s official biography states that their debut album Fire was so named because they “noticed an abundance of the word fire on this record and…decided to go with it.”). Lead singer Dick Valentine had commented on the aforementioned lyrical tendencies in song content with regards to the band’s third album.
