For the last 30 plus years, Blue Öyster Cult has been following their own unique path. Their motto "On Tour Forever" still holds, as the band plays over 100 dates per year. Most fans feel the band sounds better than ever--that the musical maturity and skill combined with over three decades of playing together has made BÖC a prime example of rock and roll at its best.
Throughout Blue Öyster Cult's impressive career, the band has earned a well-deserved reputation as "the thinking man's heavy metal band." BÖC came out of Long Island, NY, and immediately delighted critics and fans. Not only was BÖC's music hard-hitting, the subject matter and lyrics of its songs were fresh and clever -- particularly for a style of music not exactly revered for its braininess. Science fiction, horror, violence and tongue-in-cheek humor are common threads in much of BÖC's material.
Their mainstream breakthrough was the explosion of 1976's 'Agents of Fortune' and the hauntingly immortal smash hit single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper." Subsequent albums further cemented Blue Öyster Cult's status as one of the finest hard-rock bands in history, with mammoth hit singles like "Godzilla" and "Burnin' For You."
