[photogallerylink id=79717]Jane’s Addiction formed in Los Angeles, California in 1986. They dissolved in 1991, but briefly returned to tour in 1997 and vanished shortly thereafter. They officially returned in 2001, before breaking up yet again in 2004. In April 2008 the original lineup reunited for the first time at the NME Godlike Genius Award show. As of October 2008 the original lineup was performing again.
Jane’s Addiction was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States. Their initial farewell tour launched the first Lollapalooza festival which revolutionized the North American concert world by bringing together an eclectic mix of musicians, exhibitors and attractions for a high energy weekend of music and alternative lifestyles.
As a result, Jane’s Addiction became icons of what Farrell dubbed the “Alternative Nation.” The band was ranked 35th on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” list.
