  • Lostprophets are a Welsh rock band formed in 1997.
  • Lostprophets formed with two members of Public Disturbance, which featured drummer Ian Watkins and guitarist Mike Lewis. Neither member initially left Public Disturbance, although Watkins quit as soon as 1998.
  • Thefakesoundofprogress featured many references to 1980s pop-culture. In addition to the Duran Duran reference in the band's name, there was an image of Vengar from the Dungeons & Dragons TV series on the album sleeve notes, as well as song titles like "Shinobi vs. Dragon Ninja" and "Kobrakai". The first song's title was a reference to the video games Shinobi and Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja, while the second was an alternative spelling of Cobra Kai, the name of the karate dojo in the Karate Kid movies. Another reference is the use of the VF-1 Valkyrie in Battroid mode from the 1982 anime The Super Dimension Fortress Macross as part of the album illustration.
  • Start Something was released in the UK on 2 February 2004, and was commercially successful, achieving number four in the UK Albums Chart. The album sold 2.5 million copies worldwide.
  • Lyrically the music is aggressive, with a strong feeling of disillusionment, often delivered in an uplifting manner, and with an anti-militaristic stance at times.
