Interesting facts and trivia about The Darkness. By Songfactsยฎ.

Their first album, Permission to Land, was made on the cheap in about two weeks but was wildly successful in the UK, where it sold over a million copies and earned the BRIT award for Best Album. Their second album, One Way Ticket to Hell and Back, took a lot longer and cost roughly $2 million. It sold closer to 100,000 copies.

Before forming The Darkness, Justin and Dan Hawkins were in a prog-rock band called Empire, with Dan, instead of Justin, on lead vocals. Justin became lead singer after he did Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' in a karaoke competition at a millennium eve party. He acted out every line and did lots of star-jumps.

The Hawkins' brothers grew up in Lowestoft, Surrey. Drummer Ed Graham was in the same class at school as Dan, the younger brother. They met bass player Frankie Poullain, a Scot, whilst living in London.
