Placebo is an alternative rock band, formed in London, England in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal. The band were soon joined by drummer Robert Schultzberg, who left in 1996 due to conflicts with Molko and was replaced the same year by Steve Hewitt.

Placebo gained exposure in 1997, after releasing “Nancy Boy”, a song which Brian Molko described as “obscene”. The band has sparked controversy at the beginning of their career because Molko wore dresses and make-up in public and talked openly about sex, sexuality and drug use.

They have also collaborated with various artists over the years, including David Bowie, Justin Warfield, Michael Stipe and Alison Mosshart.

Placebo utilise androgynous images and lyrical content. To date, they have released seven studio albums, all of which have reached the top 20 in the United Kingdom, and have sold around 11 million records worldwide. They have also collaborated with various artists over the years, including David Bowie, Justin Warfield, Michael Stipe and Alison Mosshart.
