His 1994 major label debut, Mellow Gold spawned the slacker anthem, "Loser" and introduced the world to the weird and wonderful talents of Beck Hansen. Since then, rock's modern chameleon has taken turns as lo-fi hipster, soulful funkster, and weepy balladeer, and still manages to stun fans and critics with his versatility. He followed Mellow Gold with 1996's Odelay and its smash single "Where It's At," picking up two Grammy® awards and loads of critical acclaim along the way. He released the blues-tinged Mutations in 1998 and then returned in 1999 with the Grammy®-nominated high-energy romp, Midnight Vultures. 2002's Sea Change marked a dramatic departure for Beck. Inspired by the dissolution of a major relationship, the album showcases complex orchestral arrangements and earned an exceptionally rare five-star rating from Rolling Stone. In 2005, he released Guero, featuring the artistic input of Jack White, and then quickly churned out The Information in October of '06. Beck has also lent his voice to Matt Groening's Futurama and the cartoon feature film, The Rugrats.
